Gary Janks (Director of Contemporary Film Productions)
Mark Chipps is one of the most versatile, creative and practical cameramen DOP’s I’ve ever met.
He can use any of the latest cameras or drones with great precision and unflappable concentration, enabling him to produce a whole series of carefully crafted visual stories, poetic cutaways and telling interviews from every conceivable angle, appropriate focal length and suitable depth of field.
This allows an editor to weave his own magic and build a fascinating exploration into the authenticity of our our transparent lives from a veritable treasure trove of Mark’s stunning images and sounds.
Lastly what really marks him out and places him head and shoulders above his cameramen peers is his ability to engage in such a down to earth, simple and unassuming sincerity, with any subject he is filming, be they shy and innocent children or rampaging tyrants, disarming and charming them into revealing their inner world without them realising that they’re being subtly turned inside out for all the world to intimately know.
