About Mark

While finishing college, Mark would spend his spare time shooting low budget soap operas, assisting on music videos and commercials. After he graduated with a BA in media, he landed his first trainee job on the set of Assassin's Creed. That set him on the path to working in the camera department. Shortly after, he started working for ’Stargate Studios’, a VFX company, as their in-house 1st AC where he travelled the world and shot a variety of plates/elements, as well as commercials for the company. In 2019 Mark decided to move to London, to further his studies as a camera assistant at the NFTS, and his aim currently is to build a network of people, and slowly start to become a part of the UK film industry.
