You’ve heard of writer’s block, but you’ve probably never faced the challenge of bringing those words (once they’re finally written) to life. Mark Moughamian, however, makes video production look easy as pie – and the final product is always sweeter than any slice of coconut cream. For that, and his spot-on movie recommendations, Mark has been named World’s Best Person!
No matter how tight a turnaround or how complicated a project, Mark tackles each one fearlessly – and he keeps us laughing while he does it! This month’s challenge involved a commercial shoot that kept the rest of the Production Department out of the office for 2 days, leaving Mark to conquer Auto Week, our busiest week of the month, solo. And he never missed a beat.
We’re currently investigating whether Mark’s red hair provides some sort of superhuman strength, but we’ll let him keep his trophy either way. Learn more about our favorite ginger here:
Q: What was your favorite toy as a kid?
A: My original PlayStation. My dad bought it for us when it first came out and got Gran Turismo, a racing game. Every time I would visit him, we’d play it for hours into the night – well past my bedtime. Those late nights are still some of my fondest memories of growing up.
Q: If you could choose to stay one age forever, which age would you pick and why?
A: I’d say early 30s. You’re old enough to know how to get by in life but still young enough to be active and learn new things.
Q: What is your favorite flavor Jelly Belly?
A: Cherry. All day, every day.
Q: If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
A: To play any and all instruments. I grew up playing string instruments (violin, guitar, cello, bass, etc) but never had time to learn others. I love how expressive music is and would really enjoy being able to sit down at a piano or pick up some drum sticks and play my heart out.
Q: What is the most ridiculous fact you know?
A: I’m basically an encyclopedia for movie info, so if you ask me about any movie, I can probably rattle off half a dozen facts about it. Here’s a freebie: When the T-Rex in Jurassic Park attacks Tim and Lex by going through the sunroof, the animatronic overshot its mark and actually broke the glass, causing truly authentic screams from the actors. Also, Rexy would “come alive” on its own between takes because it wasn’t waterproof and the circuits would often short out.
Congrats, Mark! Stay tuned to find out who is named next month’s WBP!
