Damani Baker & Alex Vlack
Damani Baker, a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, was selected by Filmmaker Magazine as one of "25 new faces in independent film". His career spans documentaries, music videos, and advertisements. Some of Baker’s documentaries include Grenada: A Dream Deferred, which revisits the events and circumstances of the 1983 U.S. invasion of Grenada, and Return, an award-winning film that explores the genius of traditional African medicine. This year Baker directed music videos for Maiysha’s single “Wanna Be”, nominated for a 2009 Grammy, and Morley’s “Women of Hope”, inspired by pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi. As a director his commercial clients have included Nike/Wieden & Kennedy and their 2006 World Cup ‘Play Beautiful’ campaign.

Baker has also shot several viral campaigns for Puma, Wired Magazine and BMW for Late Night and Weekends. In addition to his professional work as a director, Baker is a guest professor at Sarah Lawrence College’s Film and New Media Department and the director of the Quest for Global Healing Film Series in Bali, Indonesia. In 2009, he completed Still Bill, about the life and music of Bill Withers. The film premiered in the United States at South by Southwest in March 2009 and features a soundtrack with previously unreleased tracks.

Alex Vlack co-founded Late Night and Weekends with director Andrew Zuckerman, where they make documentaries, commercials, branded content, books, media installations and narrative films. His credits
include New York Times Television’s Raising the Flag and NOVA’s Battle Plan Under Fire; media installations at the Centers for Disease Control and the National Museum of the Marine Corps; advertising campaigns and content for Puma, BMW, and Wired; a short film, High Falls, directed by Andrew Zuckerman, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and won Best Narrative Short at the Woodstock Film Festival.

Wisdom, a book, film, and exhibition of Zuckerman’s portraits and interviews conducted, which he produced and edited, was released in the fall of 2008. In 2009 he completed Still Bill, a documentary about Bill Withers nearly a decade in the making.
