Either for a fundraiser, building awareness or to stir emotional support, Get Reel films are now proven tools that provide true client results within the industry.
As Get Reel Productions heads into it’s fifth year, the company today not only offers custom corporate work but also a variety of other options related to the film industry like our 3D scan capability!

Lighting and creative movement of the lens is at the heart of Mark’s talent. He is a renowned Cinematographer who has worked from the New York area for over 25 years. His travels have taken him all over the world for PBS and Discovery, into the homes of international celebrities, and aboard the Presidential helicopter, Marine One. Mark began his craft lighting national commercial spots for BMW and American Express while cutting his cameraman’s teeth filming documentaries in Africa. The fast, high pressure world of Network News and Entertainment developed his discipline for telling stories under the pressure of limited time with world-class journalists Dan Rather, Diane Sawyer and entertainment guru Oprah Winfrey. Celebrity driven broadcast specials elevated the requirement for flattering portraiture for interviews with over 150 celebrity icons like Beyonce, Woody Allen, Mary Tyler Moore, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford, Jennifer Aniston… Woven in between, International travel continues to places like Cairo, Le Paz, Kyoto and Athens where dramatic landscapes and ancient cultures open new perspectives on our own culture.
Not to be stopped Mark continually seeks fascinating new ways to move the camera and capture beautiful images. His newest passion has taken him back to the air flying (UAV) helicopters that specialize in low altitude cinematography (drones) for documentary filmmaking.
