As much as being a professional cinematographer and editor, I am a storyteller. I create videos that represent the whole picture, but always celebrate the small details.

Baker Digital is me and my crew. I am the cinematographer and editor of all  video production by design. Although located in Columbia, Missouri, my work has been used throughout the United States. I have taught video editing at the University of Missouri, School of Engineering  and have a twenty plus year working relationship with Jack Smith, a member of the Advertising Hall of Fame and former Group President of The Leo Burnett Advertising Agency. I bring a specific set of skills to the art of digital marketing that can only be learned with years of experience. Being both the shooter and the editor, along with owning all the production gear, allows me to save time which in turns saves money to the clients.


It is my pleasure to recommend Thom Baker and Baker Digital Marketing as a dependable, reasonable, creative production source. I have worked with Thom for over 20 years now and will, hopefully, work with him for 20 more. Thom is a one man show, so  direct communication on your project is never a problem.His production instincts are excellent, be it casting, film editorial or strategies.  Thom has a good understanding of what the consumer will like and respond to because Thom is an accomplished performer himself.  It’s never boring with Thom. He is as adept at music editorial as anyone I’ve ever worked with, keeping the  integrity of the song in mind as he makes a piece of music fit the copy. I do believe you get more for your money with Thom than any other production source in mid Missouri.
