MARK KLASSEN is a Toronto Director & Director of Photography. He’s an executive producer at withRevere, a production company started to facilitate production of commercials and documentaries, and a partner at Good People Commons, a Photo/Video and event space nestled in the Junction neighborhood of Toronto.
Mark’s experience as a filmmaker and artist stretches back to his teenage years when he stumbled upon graphic design and photography. Not long after his discovery of these mediums, as luck would have it, he found himself on a film set. What followed was over a decade of youth growing up surrounded by films and filmmakers in such a wide variety of genres and areas within cinema.
Over the years Mark has worked with brands such as McDonalds, We Day, TIFF, Ubisoft, Vice, Volkswagen, The National Football League (NFL), Pixar, and CIBC to name a few. In addition to his body of commercial work, Mark has worked on several episodes of television series including shows like Rock Icons (HBO) and 16x9 (GlobalTV). He also worked on House of Z (2nd Unit DP), Kayak to Klemtu (DP Pickups & Reshoots), and The Definites (2nd Unit DP). His broad range of experience in production, as well as in post-production, has allotted him an extensive body of experience that culminates in every project he takes on today, whether it’d be a commercial, documentary, narrative, or other artistic endeavor.
When he’s not working, you can find Mark dabbling in Lighting Design, Photography, listening to music, SUPing on Lake Ontario, or experimenting on new ideas for future artistic endeavors.
