Mark is clearly very passionate about what he does, probably the reason why his work ethic is unmatched at TRU, at least I think so personally. Do your work and always seek for his feedback, you will do fine in his class.

Mark is smart! Extremely smart... Sometimes I think he forgets he is teaching undergraduate students, though... His classes are entertaining; yet, they can also be confusing for the amount he teaches you each lecture. Stay on top of his class since there is a ton of homework and reading each week, and go to his office hours for additional help.

Whenever I have the chance to take a FILM course with Mark, I always take it! His lectures are really informative and entertaining, and he really gives you a lot of free reign when it comes to assignments and projects. It has been mentioned that he gives out a lot of homework, which is true. If you manage the workload, you will enjoy his class.

I have mixed feelings on Mark since I found him to be very nice, funny, and understanding if you needed to chat with him about something. Unfortunately, as a professor, I felt that he wasn't "present" for most of the semester. Most of our lectures were cut short, he didn't give much feedback on assignments, and he cancelled a few classes in a row.

Mark's expectations in this class are atrocious. The amount of work he gives, with the amount of time he expects you to put into each assignment is unattainable. It is the last day of classes for this semester and my class only has 4/10 assignments marked! His feedback on assignments are harsh and belittling. Get ready to understand nothing!

Mark is a really entertaining professor, and it's great to see how passionate he gets whenever he is teaching you. Be prepared, he gives out a lot of readings, papers, and homework in general. It wasn't uncommon to write over 1000 word weekly essays, along with a few hours of readings/videos. Learn to manager your time, or else you will be drowned.

Mark is definitely one of the best professors at TRU from my experience. However, if you are planning on taking a class with him, there are a few things you need to know. Be prepared for long lectures, making a lot of time for his class, and a ton of homework; weekly essays around 1000 words, and around a few hours of readings & videos to boot.

I'm a big fan of Mark, and I have always enjoyed his classes. Unfortunately, it seemed like I didn't even have him as a professor this time around. Mark cancelled a handful of classes throughout the semester, and he was harder to get a hold of too.. Great professor & funny guy! But, for some reason, he had to cancel quite a few classes.

One of the best professors I have ever had... Mark's lectures are engaging, entertaining, and extremely informative! Throughout my time at TRU, I can say that Mark is by far one of the best professors there. Even though he gives out a lot of homework and readings (stay on top..) compared to other profs, he appreciates students who put in effort.

Mark is awesome, but MAN does he give a lot of assignments! For FILM4100 in particular, you have to watch upwards of 4 hours of TV shows and movies each week and write an essay on them EVERY WEEK, alongside some lengthy readings and other assignments. Mark is a generous marker and a good prof, but his classes are not a walk in the park.

Be prepared... Mark gives out a lot of readings and assignments throughout the semester, and you can easily fall behind if you don't stay on top of the workload. It's been mentioned here before, but I will say it again. It takes him a while to get back your marks on assignments and projects. His lectures are entertaining, but they can be long.

I really like Mark a lot, but I find that his course content is way too broad. If you are an individual type student, you will excel in any of his classes. If you cannot figure out concepts on your own, and be able to come up with your own content, you will struggle mightily in his class. Be prepared, he gives out a lot of homework each week.

I like Mark, and he is definitely a solid choice as a professor. But, be prepared to spend a lot of time on his assignments, since he gives out a lot over the course of a semester. Mark gives good feedback on assignments, but it takes forever to get your grades (as mentioned). I recommend office hours if you need help with any of his assignments.

I really like Mark as a prof. He is an engaging lecturer, one of the best I have had at TRU. Despite this, he gives minimal feedback on assignments which sucks, and he is a very slow marker. Also, in this class in particular he gave tons of difficult assignments which are only worth 10 percent each. I still liked this class and would recommend him

I like Mark a lot, and I think he's a great guy! That being said, the course content and material was all over the place, and I found that the group projects would have been easier as individual assignments. Lazy and uninterested students in your group; especially, when you take classes in Marks class, will kill your grade. Go solo when you can.

Lectures a lot. Be prepared for a paper due once a week with insane word counts (4000). A couple of group papers as well with little time to work on them. Also very unclear as to what he wants. Very slow marker. Semester just finished & I only have 4/10 assignments marked & handed back to me. However, there are no tests in this class.

Mark is a really good professor, and I always enjoy his lectures. It has been mentioned here many times before, but you have to stay on top of his workload. Mark gives out a lot of readings and assignments, and it can be very easy to fall back in his course. His instructions can be broad, but he really encourages new ideas for his assignments.

Mark is unique professor, who can keep an entire classes attention during his lectures, something most professors struggle to do. I learned a lot in his class, but be prepared to put in a lot of effort and time into your assignments. I really enjoyed how easy it was book appointments and get email responses back from him in a timely manner, too.
