Mark loves to tell the origin story of how Second Draft was first dreamed up, 8000 miles away from home, down in the windswept Falkland Islands, in the South Atlantic ocean.
If you buy him a coffee he'll regale you with the "director's cut" of that particular adventure! But for now...
The Short Version
He was researching a documentary and needed a collaborator and a guide. Glen was a cameraman and editor at the country’s TV station. He knew the locals, and knew where they kept the imported beer.
Six months later they were filming together again, back in the UK, as part of a team producing factual TV. But as exciting as it was seeing their work on screen, both Glen and Mark had a vision for bringing that cinematic style and premium standards to businesses and organisations who had their own equally fascinating stories to tell.
Disrupting Corporate Video
They wanted to help these companies talk to their customers and audiences in a fresh and appealing way.
They wanted to shake up the world of corporate video and make films with heart and passion, films that reflected the wonder and obsession business owners, artisans and professionals have with their work.
They wanted to make films that people want to watch again and again.
Second Draft are a lean and flexible production company with a prodigious work ethic, and what makes them unique is how they combine their respective training - Glen in TV and Film production, Mark in Journalism and Economics - to create projects that look spectacular whilst delivering intelligence and depth.
