In the News: Communications Adjunct on Screenwriting, Hollywood

| May 22, 2012

Bart Baker

Film producer and screenwriter Bart Baker, an adjunct faculty member in the Webster University School of Communications, was profiled with an extensive Q&A in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

In the interview Baker, who has 18 films and series and one novel to his credit, discusses his decision to move back to St. Louis from Los Angeles, the writing process, and the inner workings of Hollywood.

As self-described family man, Baker’s return to St. Louis was motivated in part by moving closer to family. Asked if it matters he’s not in L.A. any more, he said:

Not at all. I have to go to LA about once a month for business but I could be writing from anywhere.

Baker, who started out as an actor — he had a recurring role on “General Hospital” — describes his success: “I worked hard and I got lucky.”

Baker teaches screenwriting and film production at Webster.
