Messages of Remembrance
Mark was by far the best Film Studies professor I had at UBC. When you walk into a room packed of students eager to learn about silent film (some even fighting to get a seat), you know it must be because of an exceptional professor. The knowledge I got from his classes made me realize that no matter how much you are interested in a subject (and I wasn't interested in silent film at all before his class), if you have an outstanding professor, you will learn and have fun while doing it. I will forever cherish our conversations during the breaks and after class and all the incredible knowledge he shared with his students. I will never forget Mark.
Thanks to you, Mark, I am still making movies at 70. Thanks to your enthusiastic support and interest I did well in the first RGLA program (religion, language, arts & film) - B.A. 2006. I will never forget you! Dyane Lynch
