Reference From:

Planning Manager, TVNZ

Mike Todd states:



"Mark is one of those rare individuals who display the highest commitment to his chosen profession. He sets the best standards for himself and expects the same from those who work with him.

Mark is honest, courteous and extremely motivated. His love and passion for television set him apart from most of his peers. He has deservedly gained a strong reputation as a reliable and quality camera operator, who has the skills to work across a variety of projects.

In the 10 years that Mark has worked on a freelance basis for Television New Zealand, he has worked on news, current affairs and documentaries. Among the programmes he regularly contributes to are One News at 6pm and Holmes.

One of Mark's great strengths is his all round knowledge of the fundamentals of television. He is not only a top camera operator, but has an intimate knowledge of the sound requirements of television, and is an accomplished editor.

On a personal level it must be said Mark has a rare "people touch", which has often seen him get that something special from his on screen talent."   (Letter Dated 2000)
