Bert Marcus is the definition of an independent filmmaker. After being inspired by the personalities that he encountered while producing radio in his early career, Bert ventured out on his own to capture distinctive and unearthed stories on film by founding Bert Marcus Productions (“BMP”). His fresh perspective as a true pioneer outsider has resulted in a unique vision and approach to documentary filmmaking that focuses on authentic characters and the most pressing, and often controversial, issues of our time. Despite covering diverse subject matters, each film has tapped into the very essences of what makes us human, flawed and beautiful, in this complex and ever changing modern world. Using the latest technology, an uncompromising dedication to quality, and a commitment to upholding the integrity of his subjects, Bert’s films have premiered at every major international film festival, have been sold to high end distributors and have returned a profit.
Both his filmmaking and fundraising prowess has been featured in exposés in major international publications such as The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, USA Today, Variety’s prestigious “Dealmakers Impact Report,” as a future media maven and leading industry player to watch, named one of “Hollywood’s New Leaders” by Variety and a “King of Doc” in the Details Magazine “Hollywood Mavericks Issue.”
