Mark Hofeling

Production Design

Mark has designed and art directed over 50 productions for film and television. Mark began his work in film at age 19, and designed his first feature, Leucadia Film’s “Windrunner” (1995) six years later. Although Mark is now known for his work in Children’s film and television, his first years in film were spent in horror, toiling in low budget art departments for Fangoria Magazine’s trilogy “Mindwarp”, “Children of the Night” and “Severed Ties” and on Films such as “Halloween 5″ then working as an EFX tech and puppeteer on Sam Raimi’s “Army of Darkness”. Many of his early projects as a production designer were stories of hard-luck realism in bleak desert-scapes and rough trailer-park poverty, like Fox Searchlights’ “Nobody’s Baby” (2001), CBS’ “See You in my Dreams” (2000), or Showtime’s “Edge of America” (2003) and “Just a Dream” (2002). In 2005 Mark’s professional life took a colorful turn when he was given his first Disney Channel Original Movie, “Buffalo Dreams” (2005). Since then Mark has designed 20 Disney Channel Original Movies, including: “High School Musical 2″ (2007), “Wizards of Waverly Place, the Movie” (2009), and “Teen Beach Movie” (2013) as well as “High School Musical” 1 and 3 (2006 & 2008), the latter for Walt Disney Studios. These massively successful projects afforded Mark the exciting new challenge of designing for music and choreography and has interpreted the vision that Kay and Lenny have brought to Daniel in Babylon.
