Good Guys Versus Bad Guys is the title of Mark Stirton’s latest project.
It’s a terrific idea and should make an awesome movie. I mean that. You can hear about it in today’s I Am Do Filmmaker podcast.
Meet filmmaker Mark Stirton, the writer/cameraman/director/editor of hit North East movie One Day Removals.
If you’re serious about making movies and you want to learn about the journey filmmakers take to get to the top of their game, then Mark Stirton’s story is one you should know.
He’s outspoken. He’s not afraid of using a few effs and bees. I only used the beeper once (sorry Mark).
While he may not have achieved stardom, he has achieved regional acclaim and festival success with One Day Removals (ODR) and a certain amount of cash (he’s still making money off The Planet and ODR).
Possibly more important, however, is the experience and insider’s knowledge of the workings of the world of movie production, casting and distribution, which he has gained over more than 15 years – since he started fooling round with video cameras.
Mark divides his time between London, where the industry, the media and the good weather lives, and Aberdeen, where his family, fresh air and water can be found.
Aberdeen is also where he meets up with long time collaborators and producers, Michael G. Clark and Kerwin Robertson. They’re his producers, but also work on design for their movie projects.
It’s all in the podcast.
