THE TIMES BBC ITN SAVE THE CHILDREN
BBC JOURNALIST AND NEWS ANCHOR
"JOSHUA BAKER IS AN OUTSTANDING JOURNALIST AND FILMMAKER WHO THROUGH HIS FILMS AND WRITING IS HAVING AN IMPACT ACROSS A NUMBER OF AREAS RELATING TO GLOBAL ISSUES, THE DEVELOPING WORLD AND CONFLICT REPORTING. HE IS ONE OF A NEW GENERATION OF JOURNALISTS WHO ARE USING MULTIPLE MEDIA TO TELL STORIES TO GREAT EFFECT AND REACH. HE IS CERTAINLY A NAME TO WATCH AND I CANNOT RECOMMEND HIM HIGHLY Enough"
Executive Producer ITN Productions
“Josh did a great job as a Shooting Producer/Director for me on a complex series where the demands of the shoot meant he had to act quickly on his feet due to changing circumstances. He discovered fascinating stories and came away with great shots and interviews. Josh also works really well with talent – getting the best out of untested presenters despite only having a short amount of time to build rapport.”
WELCOME TO THE MOSQUE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN THE EXCELLENT FILM IT WAS WITHOUT JOSHUA. HE WAS ABLE TO HELP NEGOTIATE ACCESS IN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS. I FOUND HIM TO BE A SAFE PAIR OF HANDS WHO I COULD TRUST. AFTER OUR EXPERIENCE ON THIS FILM I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH HIM AGAIN IN THE FUTURE
FOREIGN AFFAIRS CORRESPONDENT CHANNEL 4
"HE IS A JOURNALIST AND FILMMAKER WHO BRINGS FRESH EYES TO THIS CONFLICT, HE HAS NOT BEEN AFRAID TO WADE IN TO SOMETHING SO INTRACTABLE AS THE ISRAELI PALESTINIAN CONFLICT AND TO THAT I SALUTE JOSHUA."
DIrECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
"IT WAS A PRIVILEGE WORKING WITH JOSHUA RECENTLY OUT IN IRAQ. I FELT VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE A COLLEAGUE WHO'S NOT ONLY SO SWITCHED ON, EXPERINCED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE BUT ALSO INCREDIBLY SUPPORTIVE, A GREAT LISTENER YET FULL OF IDEAS. JOSH BRINGS THE BEST OUT IN PEOPLE. HIS CONCERN FOR THE WELLBEING AND SAFETY OF HIS COLLEAGUES IS VERY APPARENT. COMBINE THAT WITH HIS FIRST AID SKILLS AND WE WERE IN GOOD HANDS. I COULDN'T REALLY HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER WORK/TRAVEL COMPANION"
Director of Brand and DEVELOPMENT PRODUCER
"JOSHUA’S PROPULSION TOWARDS ACTIVITY, HIS PASSION AND DEDICATION TO THE STORY ABOVE ANYTHING ELSE, AND HIS DESIRE TO LEARN, IS EVIDENT IN THE VAST BREADTH OF EXPERIENCE HE HAS ACCUMULATED IN A DISARMINGLY SHORT CAREER. FROM THE UNFORGIVING PRACTICALITY OF PRODUCTION, TO STRAIGHT-UP NEWS JOURNALISM. He creates beautiful and Insightful work.
