Mark talks about their filmmaking process saying, “Our films would easily be micro-budget, not low-budget. We make the most of what we have at our disposal. You always have to have another source of income when pursuing this as the financial returns are limited, but in the end, it’s the pleasure you get from making a movie. Passion plays a big role in it. “
