DIRECTOR AND WRITER

Mark Taylor

Mark Drury Taylor started his directing career seventeen years ago when he directed a couple of short films in Hollywood for a short film series called Cine Poems. The first, ‘Forever’ starred the Welsh actor Desmond Llewelyn, best known for his role as ‘Q’ in over 17 James Bond films. The second, ‘Room’ was a theatrical dance piece and was a finalist at the ‘Dances with Film’ festival and was screened at the Sundance Sunset Cinema. Mark then turned his talents to directing commercials around the world. In his career, he has directed commercials for major brands such as AT&T, Toyota, Sony, Honda and Budweiser to name but a few. He has been charged with large budgets for commercials for media spends of fifty million dollars and his work has carried great responsibility such as the commercials he directed for the introduction and launch of the Toyota Camry and Yaris in China. His recent highly acclaimed short films for AT&T (production budget of half a million dollars) flew across six continents in twenty four hours receiving over 22 million tweets. Mark loves telling stories and has a passion for family content which resulted in him writing the screenplay, ‘Saving Flora.’ It’s about a young girl rescuing a Circus elephant from being euthanized and making the hazardous trip across the American wilderness in the hope that an elephant Rescue in Tennessee wouldn’t turn them away, all the while trying to elude the authorities and a couple of ruthless big game hunters.
