After attaining college degrees in Psychology and Computer Information Systems, Marx decided to pursue a dream he had since childhood – filmmaking. So he traveled to Vancouver Film School in Vancouver, British Columbia to study film production.
In Vancouver he worked on a wide range of projects, including short films, independent feature length films, documentaries, reality television and commercials. His roles in such projects have varied just as much: Producer, Writer, Director, Assistant Director, Director of Photography, Editor, Boom Operator/Sound Mixer and of course the infamous Production Assistant.
He also studied another hobby of his outside of school – fight choreography, which naturally arose out of his interest and background in martial arts. Marx’s training in martial arts ranges greatly in different styles: Jun Fan, Filipino Martial Arts, Hapkido, Kung Fu, Pacific Archipelago Combatives, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Tai Chi, Silat, Judo and more.
Since returning to the United States he has worked as a freelancer in various film projects (Bloomington, Remaindered, A Mind Beside Itself, etc). Last year Marx created Alien Jungle Bug Productions to film Silence of the Belle. An award winning short film written, directed, and produced by Marx. Most recently he wrote, directed, and produced the new scifi web series Reality On Demand and co-produced/co-directed the web series The Book of Dallas.
Marx has also written on various entertainment news websites: Scifi Pulse, Comics Bulletin, and Airlock Alpha (formerly called Syfy Portal before selling the rights to the name to the SciFi Channel/SyFy Channel). He currently writes a column on ScifiPulse called "The IndieNet and Beyond," which covers web series and other entertainment on the Internet. He is also the producer and co-host of the popular online radio show GenreTainment.
