Who's Directing this thing?!
I guess I should post a bit about myself...My name is Mark Cheng. I'm 30 years old and live in NJ..I feel like a bit of an enigma...I love watching movies, love science fiction...I'm a 1997 graduate of Cornell University's film/theater program...became a web developer and graphic designer...started my own consulting company...then got my MBA...and now I'm coming back to film!! What a long route! But film making is the most expensive art form/hobby on the freaking planet!!!! More about me after the jump...
Here's a more thorough bio:
After graduating Cornell University with a BA in film/theater production, I started to work in NYC as production assistant on such projects as Chef-BoyRDee ravioli commercials and MTV music videos including Jay Z's "The Streets is Watching."
After a year of doing this, I left the world of production to work for Grey Advertising as a media buyer. There, I purchased airtime from cable networks for commercials on behalf of Grey's clients which included Ethan Allen and Rogain. I was soon tempted by the internet bubble and left Grey to start my own web design consulting company, Creation Matrix, where I created sites for clients like the Singapore General Hospital. I eventually joined a fast growing financial trading firm as their webmaster and oversaw the construction of their global equities website which was used by other trading firms like Ameritrade and Datek. I spent the next couple years developing financial trading applications and then decided to relaunch Creation Matrix.
While I was doing all this work, I was attending Rutgers University's part-time MBA program where I supplemented my technical skills with courses focused on marketing and entrepreneurship. This past May, I received my MBA degree and have just recently appeared in NJBiz Magazine's "Finance and Growth Guide 2005" as a featured entrepreneur.
And now, after that long trip, I'm back in the worl of production, but making my own film!
