Marcus' YIT safety video also wins Golden Camera Award at the US International Film & Video Festival in Los Angeles
YIT Work Safety -video is an ABC guide to working on a construction building site. The chosen format of simple and clean animation was designed with the target audience in mind. There are several Central Asian nationalities working in the Russian Federation area. YIT wanted to produce a work safety animation especially to educate workers from this area. As you will come to notice towards the end of the animation, the first and foremost message is to prevent unnecessary falls on the building site. The second aim is to provide tools for safe working and to educate about basic protective equipment and safety rules and routines on the building site. The relatively slow pace of the narration and the stripped simple animation style was tailor made for the main audience of Uzbek and Taijik origin. The original animation was created in English and language versions were made in Russian, Taijik and Uzbek. This video is a key asset on the YIT building sites during work safety training and induction process.

Marcus plays 'Lucus' in Bunny The Killer Thing, a classical genre horror feature film. Bunny The Killer Thing was filmed in early 2014 entirely in northern Finland and is due for release in 2015. Bunny The Killer Thing is being exhibited at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2015.
In the dark winter woods of Finland, a group of seven Finnish young adults are heading to have a fun weekend at a cabin. By chance, three foreign men end up in the same cabin. However, the men seem to be hiding a terrible secret, and the party weekend at the cabin becomes a game of life and death when all of a sudden a weird creature attacks from forest to terrorize them all! The creature is half man, half rabbit. The creature is Bunny the Killer Thing!
Barack And The Beanstalk
Marcus played Barack Obama in David Shirreff and Russell Sarre's www.barackandthebeanstalk.com
Barack and the Beanstalk, a new musical by David Shirreff and Russell Sarre, directed by Ross Livingstone, is showing at the OSO Arts Centre, Barnes and Canal Cafe Theatre, Little Venice.
Now, after bashing Britain and Euroland, Shirreff and Sarre turn the fire-hose on America, also known as God’s own country. Not to be missed! Oblivious of the well-known fairy tale, young Barack sells the family cow for a handful of beans and gets into deep water. Who is the Giant? What gets laid by his precious hen? This is a musical romp that goes all the way to America’s near-bankruptcy, accompanied by a mad hatter’s Tea Party of assorted bankers, lawyers and politicians. Great tunes and nifty words.
Marcus performed as 'Kenneth' in Hitchcock Homage at Barons Court Theatre from 01 July 2014 until 06 July 2014.
Stage Theatre Company returns with their acclaimed Hitchcock Homage production, a dark comedy inspired by the Master of Suspense highlighting the callousness and deviousness of two lovers trying to get away with the perfect crime. A dinner party. A dead body. A killer twist... and of course the obligatory cameo.
