Mark Baker es un animador británico con una marca dificilmente superable: sólo tiene en su haber tres cortos y los tres han sido nominados a los oscar. Probablemente el más conocido y sin duda el más desopilante sea "Jolly Roger", una historia de piratas. "The hill farm" narra durante tres días la vida en una granja, y "The village" viene a ser un guiño al quimérico inquilino de Polanski.

The Hill farm is a short animation film (18 minutes) by Mark Baker. The story takes place over three days and focuses on how three groups of people (farmers, campers and hunters) use the same countryside in different ways. The first day introduces the farmer characters (Howick , Hazel and the farm hand, Hugh) and shows a typical day at the farm. The animals have to be fed continuously, watered, milked and protected. A huge, sleepy bear makes a half hearted attempt to catch one of the sheep, but is shooed away. At the end of this first day, a problem has emerged – the farm pump isn’t working; there isn’t any water in the well. The second day introduces the camper characters, who park their car on a nearby hill, pitch their tent, and start photographing the farm and the farmers. The third day introduces the hunter characters, who will hunt anything that moves, even individual bees. During this final day, a storm builds up and the campers and hunters manage to goad the huge bear into chasing them back towards the farm. The storm breaks and all the characters come together, seeking shelter in the farmhouse. At the end of the storm the groups split up again, probably none the wiser from their experience, the farmers well has been filled with water and everything returns to normal. The film has no dialogue, and relies on animation, sound effects and music.

Since it was first completed in 1988, it has been screened regularly around the World in film festivals, and as a part of animation compilations.
