Damon Packard Damon Packard. The name that could have been synonymous with Steven Spielberg. Perhaps in a parallel dimension, but as things would turn out, not this one. Born in Akron Ohio May 4, 1967, Packard grew up in a rural district of Akron. His father Ray Packard was a professor of fine arts and highly regarded artist–collector–gallery-owner of Akron. The Packard Gallery on West Exchange Street was a well known staple in the 60s & 70s, with it’s statue of Minerva and three Packard automobiles parked in front, art collectors and other notable clientele (which included Orson Welles) had frequented the place. Packard spent his later early years growing up in Chatsworth, California, in Rockpoint and began making experimental films in 1979 at the age of eleven. Now at age thirty-eight he has moved back with his aging grandmother in Chatsworth and continues to sneak out of the condominium in the middle of nights to walk down to the local 7-11 for processed bacon cheesburgers and video game playage.
