As residents of the community of Celebration, Florida understand, it is a thriving, diverse and multi-cultural community, set against the backdrop of picturesque homes and public buildings, architecture, nature and scenery. But to outsiders who visit the town, or read about it in international news reports, there is a common misconception that residents live in a pre-fabricated neighborhood, overshadowed by the Walt Disney World and conditioned to live by the rules and regulations of a strict governing home owner’s association.
John Baker, owner of JB Creative, and long time resident, recognizes the time is right to produce a film that celebrates and honors our community, and for this he will need the help of residents, old and new, to give their time and contribute to this project.
The simple aim: “To document and celebrate the day to day lives and times of the residents of Celebration – and to give the community at large a glimpse inside our town, to see what Celebration is truly like – and cut through the mystique, the drama and the misconceptions that exist about our community.”
John Baker, a resident of Celebration since 2005, is a writer, director and creative consultant who has worked extensively in film, television, theatre and corporate entertainment. John trained in acting and directing at the University of East London, Film and Video Production at The Media Production Centre and at the prestigious London Academy Of Music and Dramatic Art.
In 2002 John formed JB CREATIVE. The company slogan is “Recreate, Redesign, Reinvent” This is exactly what John Baker has done throughout his career, reinventing his work around the changing needs and demands of the entertainment industry having worked with Universal Orlando, Walt Disney World, Gaylord Palms, The American Theater Wing, BBC Television, Buena Vista Television, Orlando Playwright’s Round Table, NBC and CBS. In his career, John has worn many hats – creative director, actor, production manager, director, writer and freelance photographer. As a copywriter, director and creative consultant, John has been the central creative mind behind countless plays, films, live shows, product launches, public relations and corporate events and films.
