Mark produced the BBC’s first Virtual Reality documentary commission: Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel recently launched at the Sheffield Doc/Fest. He has won two Lovies and a BAFTA award for Digital Creativity for Live from Space with Channel 4.

He curates and hosts Alternate Realities at Sheffield Doc/Fest, comprising the Summit, an annual digital conference, along with the UK’s most significant exhibition of interactive and Virtual Reality documentary work, and the AR Market for interactive projects seeking funding.

He runs interactive media labs and has run virtual reality production workshops for BBC, Oculus Rift and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Mark has produced a series of music and archive documentaries that have brought together great directors, amazing archive material and well-know musicians that allow the films to not only perform well on TV and in cinemas but also play in music festivals and art galleries, often as live events.
