Director Biography - Mark Kochanowicz

Mark Kochanowicz is an actor/director and the owner of Liberty Bell Films.

Mark Kochanowicz began making movies in Philadelphia when he was 12 years old after his neighbor lent him an 8mm camera to make short films. During his college years in the 1990s, Mark played in several indie-rock bands and graduated from Pennsylvania State University. In 2003 he joined SAG-AFTRA and shortly thereafter booked a day player role on the critically acclaimed HBO show "The Wire".

Over the years Mark has played principal roles in film, television and theater and also has had the privilege of being a stand-in for many of Hollywood's A-listers in dozens of movies and TV shows.

Mark's behind-the-camera work has been successful too. Having films screen in over 25 film festivals, he has twice been Greater Philadelphia Film Office's grand prize finalist for Set-In-Philadelphia (SIP) screen-writing award and won the "Best Director Award" from the 2015 Winter Film Awards for "Assumption of Risk".
