Artist, Poet, Musician and extraordinary designer of digital effects animation, Richard "Doc" Baily was born on February 16, 1953, in Los Angeles.
His award-winning student film Night Waves resulted in the special effects studio of Robert Abel and Associates hiring him. There, Richard became known for his solos all-night work habits, his eccentric personality and his incredibly striking imagery. About 5pm every evening, fellow animators in the Technical Directing loft would hear loud, strange music coming from the stereo. That's how they knew Richard had hit town and was starting his long and creative night. In the morning, everyone would see what he had done looping on the Evans and Sutherland computer. He worked on many Clio award-winning commercials as well as the first feature film using extensive CGI, Tron, in which he animated the entrance into the computer's inner world.
