Marc Morgenstern has been a part of the film industry for at least 25 years, but became a serious director in 2004 when he shot his first feature film, The Vampire Conspiracy, that went on to receive worldwide distribution. In addition, it has been translated into four languages and sold in Wal-Mart, Blockbuster, Target, and more. It launched Fangoria’s, the nations largest resource for horror fiction’s online sreaming service Fangoria TV, and during its release was searched in the top 700 searched movies on imdb.com. After it was turned into a graphic novel, it won a silver medal at the 2010 Independent Publishing Awards.
Since then, Marc has achieved international recognition with his Cannes Lions Shortlisting commercial “Poker Face”, that either placed or won in 10 different award shows. From that accomplishment he was scooped up by Spy Films to represent them as one of their comedy directors.
One of Marc’s greatest industry accomplishments was as the creator of the variety show HouseCapades with Mike Bullard, and achieved the #1 show of its kind in its time slot and ran for over 250 episodes, one of the longest running television shows in Canadian history.
After that, he ended up becoming the Broadcasting Creative Director at Avid Life Media, where he created and produced over 80 international commercials for over 30 markets and directed the documentary Affairs Across America. With Avid Life Media, Marc has written and developed a variety show, a reality show, two feature films and a sitcom.
Marc is no stranger to directing children. He also created the three award-winning nationally renown live-action shorts titled: Operation: LabBrats. In 2013 Marc moved to California where he immediately went into production, writing and directing the feature film ‘John Dark’ with Christopher Showerman, Charlene Amoia, Tim Russ, Claudia Wells and Sachin Mehta.
