inmate profile: Mark Atkins

You'd be hard-pressed to find a harder working dude in The Asylum's stable (that isn't David Michael Latt) than Mark Atkins. Director, editor, writer and cinematographer, Atkins has had a hand in a plethora of Asylum releases. Check out these stats:

  • cinematographer of 20 films
  • editor of 6
  • director of 7
  • writer of 2
  • visual effects for 3
  • second unit director for 2
A graduate of the University of Central Florida, Atkins first film, Night Orchid, won the Best First Feature Film award at the New Orleans Film Festival in 1997. Since then he has worked - as far as films are concerned - almost exclusively with The Asylum, which makes him not only an Original Inmate, but a true American hero. If you still remember how to use MySpace, check him out here. Or if that's too antiquated for you, hit up his production website for more info on this champion behind the scenes.

Mark Atkins, consider yourself saluted.
