Congratulations Mark! iDidTht awards you with the highest honour (possibly in the world, ever), your very own Director’s Chair.
Mark get’s this French T-Back Stool. French, because, well, he used to put ‘fin’ at the end of his screenplays at Varsity (we just had to bring that up Mark😉). But really, Mark has the wonderful ability to strip back his work. He dilutes it down to its core. Like this chair, each moment in his films are functional. We are only presented with the visuals that we need to see and Mark trusts that his audience will piece together the rest. He loves simplicity and doesn’t rely on over the top performances, flashy camera moves and excessively instructional music. And that, in itself, is damn refreshing in a time when everything from an ad to an Instagram post feels like a Sundance coming-of-age film.
