Director Biography - Aaron Marko

Meet Aaron Marko, the mastermind who got an AI to write this biography. It turned out it wasn't very good so he had to sit down and rewrite it. The rewrite was arduous, taking him two months to finally sit down at a computer and string a few sentences together. But in the end, he finally did it. He loaded Uber Eats on his phone and ordered from the Panago down the street.

He is most well known for not very much. His most recent film, LGS (2023) has been hailed by critics as "certainly qualifying as a motion picture" and "including both images and sound." It has earned the director well over 1000 views on YouTube and one new subscriber. Passionate about film to a fault, Marko has spent years honing his craft. According to some critics, he shouldn't quit his day job which is unfortunate given his current employment status.

His style has been stated as being irreverent to the point of incomprehensibility. Critics often find themselves stunned and baffled after experiencing his work. Citing influences as diverse as Ingmar Bergman and Rick & Morty, it truly takes a 160 IQ genius to understand just what he is even trying to accomplish here.

He currently has several projects in preproduction including the upcoming short All We Are Is What We Remember and will eventually follow through on a second season of Weird Future once people stop asking him when it's coming out.

Director Statement

With LGS I wanted to make a film that somewhat represented my experience in the local gaming space. This is a place that I'm not very familiar with, but I was welcomed into by a lot of very friendly people so I wanted to really show both of those aspects with the film. To me, it's really a film about showing that no matter what, there is community for you no matter who you are or where you are in the world.
