About Mark

I am a highly motivated, well-organised and dedicated individual, with experience on a variety of productions, both large and small. This experience has helped give me the skills to creatively solve the multitude of hurdles and challenges all productions face and given me a real passion for filmmaking. As well as working on a variety of live action formats including 35mm, 16mm and a number of digital formats, I also have experience of stop motion animation. I work hard and learn quickly and have always been a popular and valuable member of any production I have worked on. I have recently produced award winning documentary 'Still The Enemy Within'.
