Mark and Louis

How did you get into directing?
I started at Arts school and Louis started at a local cable TV station where we grew up. A coastal town called Kapiti in New Zealand.

What is your most recent project?
We are writing a feature film about a boy who runs away from home and joins a shoplifting gang led by a 50-year-old man. It’s based on a moment from when Louis was a teen.

What is the best part of being a director?
Louis: working with Mark.
Mark: working with my kids.

How did you get into directing?
Back when I was working on ESPN at W&K NY, David Shane (our director on SportsCenter) planted the seed. I wound up directing a few things while still on the agency side, including some Emmy-nominated web films for Domino’s Pizza that I shot through Humble. I kept in touch with Eric Berkowitz, Humble’s EP, and eventually decided to make the jump to full-time directing in July ‘09.
