With both an OSCAR and BAFTA nomination to his credit, Mark is obviously passionate about film.
Others may like films but Mark has always loved “film”.
There’s a difference.
He loves everything about it. Not just the way a film is written, cast and acted but the way it’s shot, lit and edited. So it was no surprise that Mark became a director. And a writer. And a photographer. He’s all about film.
The Voorman Problem, for example, starring Martin Freeman and Tom Hollander. This won a BAFTA for Best Short Film and was nominated for an OSCAR®.
This led him to co-write and direct England is Mine, a full-length feature about Morrissey. Mark grew up Stretford, just like The Smiths’ enigmatic frontman. He was also a professional musician, so who better to tell this story?
Mark is currently working on his second feature. It’s about the legendary Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase. A film about “film”. There was only ever going to be one man for the job.
In 2020 Mark published his his photographic book: The Airborne Toxic Event
