Mark Falzon grew up in an environment which promoted independence, initiative, hard work and entrepreneurial drive. Both his parents were entrepreneurs. His mother owned ladies retail clothing shops and his father owned a motel.
Mark began helping out by counting the weekly cash takings from his mother’s shop and answering the phone to take bookings for their motel. He worked in the family retail shop writing sales dockets and doing the weekly banking. He regularly accompanied his mother to Sydney at fashion ranges to buy merchandise for the shop. His mother read him to sleep with books like Think and Grow Rich and How to Win Friends and Influence People.
The early business education, sparked Mark’s curiosity. Spurred by a desire to enrich his life by looking at the world through different lenses at the tender age of 16, Mark travelled to India with his brother Albert Falzon, to make his first documentary film. This curious spark eventually led to more than 40 documentaries, some of which have won international awards and been screened globally in over 100 countries.
A skilled stills photographer, sound recordist and editor, Mark has produced over 300 corporate videos, television and radio commercials and was Founder and CEO, for more than 10 years of advertising agency, CCM Group.
