Rogue Rock Pictures produces international-minded films for global audiences. Founded by writer, director, producer Mark Hoffe in 2016, the company currently has three feature films in early stages of development.
A writer, director and producer based in Newfoundland and Labrador, Mark Hoffe roots for the underdog in movies and life. He loves passion, persistence, and pictures. His short film Snarbuckled (2010) premiered at the 30th Atlantic Film Festival and was praised by John N. Smith (Dangerous Minds, Random Passage) as “Widely imaginative, funny. Gorgeous cinematography. Reminds me of the young Terry Gilliam.” Mark co-founded Mad Mummer Media in 2009. His credits with the company include writer, director and producer for the documentary The Needle and the Damage Undone (2012), writer and producer for the documentary Sister Morphine (2014), and writer and creative director for Newfoundland’s first interactive digital documentary Bubble Dancers (2014), co-produced with the National Film Board of Canada. Mark also wrote Away from Everywhere (2016), a dramatic feature film directed by Justin Simms and starring Shawn Doyle, Joanne Kelly, and Jason Priestley. In 2016, Mark launched Rogue Rock Pictures to write, direct, and produce feature films and documentaries with international appeal. No Voices in the Sky – his first feature screenplay under Rogue Rock – won the inaugural Daryl Duke Prize, a $25,000 national screenwriting competition. Mark is managed by Steven Tobias at Morris Ruskin’s Shoreline Entertainment Management.
