My wife and fellow film producer Jessica King’s encounter with Damian one busy day served as the inspiration for this film. Damian’s gracious, unruffled, joyful demeanor in the storm of a very busy day struck Jessica as awe-inspiring. It didn’t take long for Jessica, her husband David, and their two young children to become regulars at the bakery — and David decided he wanted to make a documentary film about the bakery and its extraordinary people. The film Baked by Grace took shape over a period of about two months. David spent an early morning with Mike below decks in the basement, then portions of several days above, both in the kitchen and the front of house.
David’s IMDB profile is “David W. King (II)”
