2014 – Sharon Baker

2014 Governor’s Awards for the Arts

Sharon Baker, independent filmmaker

Filling a blank canvas, an empty stage, and for the last 30 years, the viewfinder of a camera, Sharon Baker’s narrative and documentary storytelling has established her as an award-winning, working artist. Her films, television programs, and screenplays have been recognized in esteemed festivals that include New York, Columbus, Hollywood, and Heartland. Drawing inspiration from Delaware history, Baker’s work has aired on American Public Television, PBS, The History Channel, Nickelodeon, BRAVO, and National Geographic. Her work as a writer, director, and producer has earned her prestigious national awards and nine regional EMMY’s.

Baker is co-founder of TELEDUCTION, Inc., founder of the non-profit Serviam Media, Inc. and its Hearts and Minds Film Initiative, and creator of the online portal, a video storytelling project for Delaware. Baker’s Hearts and Minds Film Festival promotes socially-focused, independent filmmaking. Her Media Mentors program trains underserved youth in the art and craft of digital storytelling.

Baker has filmed documentaries in Africa, China, Central America, Europe, and throughout the United States. Most importantly to her, she continues to create stories throughout her home state, helping to raise visibility and support for the arts in Delaware. Photo credit: TELEDUCTION, Inc.
