Hi, I’m Mark Moritz, Director Of Photography & Post-Production Specialist at Purple Ceiling Studios.
I began in the video production industry back in 2001. With the desire to make a family history montage, I began collecting photos from all of my living relatives. The montage took several months to put together, but at the culmination of it, I rented out a theater, and had my whole family in attendance to watch. It had pictures dated back to my grandmother & grandfather first getting together in 1946 and journeying all the way up to present day. I read books, studied, and educated myself on how to digitally enhance photos and successful production techniques. Every family member I had shed a tear and told me how amazing it was. I knew then, I was on to something.
As years progressed, I studied videography under a successful New York filmmaker & producer. I took hundreds of hours in classes, certification programs, and online studies in video editing & visual effects. I expanded my horizons to study under Full Sail Academy Instruction, and a well-noted author in the 3D software industry to learn the art of 3D modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, & rendering. From there, my studies progressed further under the private instruction of an Oscar-winning Visual Effects artist in London in the fields of fluid simulations, dynamics, and compositing for film and VFX.
I have since completed production work for feature film releases, independent films & shorts, television broadcasts, documentaries, online web series’, commercials, headlining live shows in Atlantic City casinos, and a large number of private events.
