They say it’s not what you know, but who you know. This is especially true when you need a fixer to sort out your project overseas. That’s where Mark comes in. After 20 years in Hong Kong, he knows who’s who here and has coordinated dozens of projects for visiting crews, providing them with reliable local bi-lingual crews, the latest camera equipment, transport, permits and a well-stocked cool-box. Filming in China? Not a problem. Mark has associates based in several major Chinese cities, who are also able to get your project up and running.
Some call it the Dark Arts; that corner of broadcasting few understand, but without which TV wouldn’t be half as entertaining. Mark trained in the UK in 1988 and then moved to Hong Kong in 1993, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after and versatile engineers in the region. Since then he’s done it all – documentaries, ENG, OBs, LE, drama, corporate and commercial. He’s happiest when filming science and natural history, and has gained a reputation of being able to fix almost anything in the field, with just a soldering iron and a handful of cable-ties.
