About Mark

Why do you care about Special Visual Effects (VFX)?

Do you want to tell a story? Do you want to do it visually? Well, should care. Written stories are unfettered by any need to conform to practicality—or even to possibility. Your film or video can be, too

VFX mean freedom to tell any story, any way you like—and not just for cinema. We rock at creating killer marketing and social media content, or adding that special magic to your existing commercial, informational or educational footage.

Directors and producers have been using some form of VFX to get their vision onto the screen since the early 1900s; we just have cooler tools these days. Your story doesn't have to be about huge explosions or giant planet-eating monsters; the simple expedient of being able to film dialog against a green screen instead of having to build a full practical set can be a game changer when you're on a budget.

Yes: budget. VFX can be expensive as Hell...or they can be affordable. That's where I come in.

From jobs as small as wire and errant camera removal to adding virtual extras to a scene to full-bore animated CGI extravaganzas complete with the aforementioned monsters: We've got your back. Yes, Virginia: your feature film, or animated short, or social media video commercial (or anything visual, really) can run with the big dogs—without you getting soaked like they do.

Check out the work samples on my profile here, or at the Studio website ( and/or YouTube channel (). Convince yourself we can deliver; we'll help you see how you can afford it.

No, really: do.

Spinland Studios, LLC is a VA-certified Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB).

Unique traits: I encounter a lot of artists seeking to add technical chops; I'm the reverse case: a former engineer turned artist. I love riding the cutting edge where art meets technology—it's a realm of pure magic.
