Mark Johns – Cinematographer, Nomad, and Veteran. Season 1, Episode 6.


Mark Earl Johns is on the podcast this week, entertaining us with his back story and his lovely voice. By far this is my favorite podcast to date for back stories because he is so blunt and genuine with what set him on his winding path to the film industry.

In today’s episode we get into the hairy political topic of Squirrel Rights. Everyone around the table are strongly pro-Squirrel Rights and we swerve and do our best to protect the fragile creatures that are squirrels.

Mark Johns is originally from Marlow, Oklahoma, small town forty-five minutes southwest of Oklahoma City. In his early twenties he joined up with the navy and integrated himself into the I.T. department for the government. After making an egregious amount of money he chose to move to Los Angeles and then eventually to Seattle, which is where he currently resides.

Even though he loves the big city vibes, Oklahoma City is becoming something of a small filmmaking community and Mark is considering returning here for his ‘Vision Quest.’ Art has been steadily trickling into Oklahoma City and since 2015 the art scene has been growing exponentially and we are all looking at some of the future major local artists rise. Mark loves the community here and it’s really becoming something. We hope he will come back and join us as we build a better art scene!
