Introducing and welcome Mark Stitzer as our newest coach for the 2017 workshop!
With Catie Grant joining the College of Communications faculty she will be joining other faculty in supporting the workshop over the weekend. So we get the best of both worlds – Catie stays and we add Mark.
Mark Stitzer is an Award winning Director of Photography and Steadicam operator. A 2002 graduate of Penn State’s Film program, Mark has been working in television and film production in just about every major crew role from grip, to audio, to Steadicam and directing. Because of this diverse experience range and skill set, he has been called the “Swiss Army Knife of filmmaking”.

In 2014 he earned an Emmy award for his work as the Director of Photography on the nationally aired PBS documentary “Water Blues Green Solutions”.
