Marc started Alexander Films in 2003, building a dream into a full-service, fully stocked and mobile production unit. His passion is to create wholesome, character-driven entertainment for the family. He often refers to his directorial debut, buddy cop drama Crossing Streets, as his “family Lethal Weapon”.
In 2017, Marc earned his MFA in film production from Full Sail University, then moved to San Diego, CA to develop and teach film production courses at San Diego Christian College. After 3 years he returned to the east coast, partnering with author Ian Graham to form Avendale Entertainment, a media entertainment company focused on family entertainment. AE has launched their flagship project, STELLAR, a YA novel.
For those that have had the opportunity, albeit a pleasure, to work with Marc, they will attest that he’s rarely without a toothpick and large cup of iced tea — two signature items he takes everywhere he goes.
Marc and his wife now live in Woodstock, GA. He continues to write, direct, and produce entertainment.
