Film & TV Director Resume

Marshall Malone

SUMMARY


Since the age of 10, I’ve been interested  in working in film & television comedy professionally. I discovered my love for comedy at a very early age, but it wasn’t until the age of 30 when I realized this love for comedy could actually become a career. I’ve been experimenting with short film making and sketch comedy production for the past 7 years, running and developing several YouTube channels which are focused solely on comedy. The majority of my experience has been as an independent director, but I’ve delved into writing, editing, producing, camera operating, and much more.
