SCV In the Movies | COC Department Chair of Media Entertainment Arts Jeff Baker
Bill and E.J. sit down with COC’s Department Chair of Media Entertainment Arts and animation professor Jeff Baker to hear about the films coming out of local film and animation students. They also get to view the Animation Department’s student films made in partnership with the Remember Us/Righteous Conversations Project to record and animate survivor stories from the Nazi Holocaust. See all that and more on this episode of SCV in the Movies!
E.J. Stephens spends his days as an archivist/historian for a movie studio and his nights as a caped vigilante.
When not fighting evil-doers with derring-do and aplomb, E.J. writes Hollywood history books (which nobody reads), leads tours (which nobody goes on), and co-hosts “SCV in the Movies,” (which nobody watches). E.J. is also on the board of directors of the Friends of Hart Park (but he never attends the meetings).
He and Kimi, his wife, best friend and co-conspirator, live in Newhall.
Bill West is a movie nut who serves on the board of Friends of Hart Park, gives tours of the Hart Mansion and maintains the Friends’ website and newsletter.
In his “spare time,” Bill writes software for Walt Disney Imagineering, where he has contributed to Star Tours, Toy Story Midway Mania, the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage and other Disney attractions worldwide. Previously, he wrote software at Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he met his wife, realtor and model Liliana West.
Bill lives in Santa Clarita with Liliana, their son Josh, and their pets which include Hannah the Dog, Luigi the Canary, Butterscotch the Guinea Pig, and a cat whose name he can’t pronounce but is Polish for “Kitty.”
