The fourth in our series of stories introducing the crew here at GEO Media interactive, today we meet Mark Whittle, GMi’s resident Mac apologist.
Mark began his career at the Film & Television Institute in 1984 working on corporate projects then moved to Bunbury a year later to join GWN.
Over 14 years valuable experience was gained in the areas of camera, audio, lighting, directing live programs and outside broadcasts, but his favourite is still editing. In 1989, Mark won GWN’s Crew Member of the Year Award and in 1994/95 received a cinematography award (editing & lighting) from the Australasian Retail Results Awards.
Mark started his own business in 2000, handling everything from TV commercials to weddings. In 2009 Mark & Supernova attained accreditation in corporate video with the Australian Video Producers Association (AVPA). In 2010 he decided to specialize in weddings with Supernova Video Production and bring his corporate clients to GMi.
Says Mark, “Working with three staunch Wintel tragics, I have an uphill battle as the solitary Mac user in the facility. They refuse to drool over my shiny MacBook Pro. “
