Testimonials

I had the pleasure of employing Mark in the role of Senior VFX Artist for 2 years. In that time Mark showed he possessed not only a great technical and creative skill set but also a fantastic personality as well. Mark was well liked by both our staff and clients, he kept cool when the inevitable crises hit and worked on a broad range of projects from TVCs to feature films showing he was a true all-rounder.

Dale Roberts – MD Kojo Post Production, Adelaide

Working with Mark is a real pleasure. His technical expertise and extensive experience make light work of the most complex challenges when working at the highest level.

Richard Chataway – Producer, Anifex, Adelaide, SA

Mark is wonderful Flame/Smoke Artist. His work is second to none. He is a perfectionist and a great human being. He makes the final step in the process easy and fun and my commercials are always improved by his prowess on the tools.

Roh Smith – Director Kojo

I know when I step into the Flame/ Smoke suite with my precious project that I am in safe hands when Mark is in the pilot seat. His calm, we can do anything approach fills me with confidence and he always delivers what he promises. It is always a pleasure to work with Mark.

Paula Smith – Producer, Kojo

Thanks for fixing everything in post! And with Mark, you have that luxury. Mark’s professionalism, work ethic and demeanour are an absolute asset in the edit suite. I can always rely on Mark to reach nothing short of perfection when both colour grading and onlining. His manner is outstanding and his ‘anything’s possible’ attitude is contagious. A job with particular resonance asked us to rotate a man’s back like a corkscrew. Clearly unable to shoot this in camera, I was impressed with Mark’s commitment to delivering the goods. Anyone would have thought he was a rubber man!

Emily Green – Producer, Kojo

I first me Mark shortly after he started working with Digital Pictures as a Senior Flame/ Smoke operator in March 2007. Since then, Mark has worked on numerous post production projects with The Campaign Palace, either through Digital Pictures or Iloura, for our clients such as Target, Origin, National Foods & Quit. Several of our projects have, shall we say, been a challenge as a result of additions/ changes after mastering and Mark’s attention to detail and seamless compositions have made these projects painless. Mark is a joy to work with and I can only highly recommend him.

Fiona Gilles – Head of Broadcast, The Campaign Palace, Melbourne, VIC

Mark is easy to work with, always listens and is great for offering solutions due to his experience in the industry. Quick and proficient, Mark is an editor I am always happy to work with. Mark, it is good to know you are freelancing, send us your mobile when our editor is away and I would be happy to get you in!

Christina Dess – Head of TV, McCann Erikson, Melbourne, VIC

Mark is a very quick and efficient editor who values time. Nothing is a problem, always happy to help and does his job with a smile.

Aarti Sehgal – Producer, McCann Erikson

I had the pleasure of working with Mark on numerous projects over the years, including the official London 2012 Olympic bid film. Mark has always produced work of the highest standard, his technical knowledge is second to none and his creative input is considered and original. Australia’s gain is London’s loss.

Daryl Goodrich – Creative Director, Northone Television, New Moon Television, London

Mark’s strengths are in his combination of creativity and experience, which were invaluable to the design team at Sprout in a wide range of projects. He is also an extremely lovely man to work with. All Mark’s clients come back.

Bryony Evans – Producer, Sprout Design, London

As a freelance promo director working for different broadcasters I’ve brought a variety of projects to Mark over the years. He consistently delivers to a high standard, has a great eye for design and is very quick to get a handle on an idea from the start. In short, Mark really knows his onions.
