A native Wisconsinite, Mark Kerins completed degrees in chemistry and mathematics before realizing he enjoyed watching, making, and writing about movies more than he liked working in a lab. So he made a major career change and headed to Northwestern, where he earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in Radio/TV/Film. Now a film professor, film scholar, and filmmaker (not always in that order), he teaches film production and post-production at SMU in Dallas.
