Prints for Mark is a creative project between Mark’s widow, Andra and Mark Purvis of Mission Digital which was born after a successful auction of cinematographer’s Adam Suschitsky BSC and Seamus McGarvey ASC BSC ISC photographs for the Mark Milsome Foundation.
We’re excited to announce that the 2023 Prints For Mark Calendar will be available for pre-order from tomorrow, November 1st. As always, all the money raised from these sales will go directly to the Mark Milsome Foundation to help them continue the wonderful work they do to raise awareness to create safer environments on sets as well as offer support for the next generation who want to join this beloved industry.
Titled ‘A Female Perspective’, this year we’ve created the calendar in association with Illuminatrix, a collective of professional female cinematographers, with all images kindly provided by a selection of their wonderful DOPs. This year we will only be selling one luxury version of the calendar instead of the usual two.
In conjunction with the Mark Milsome Foundation, funds raised will enable the Foundation to focus on developing entry level positions to create more diverse opportunities for young people behind the scenes of the film and television industry, whilst continuing to promote Health & Safety through the Online Safety Passport.
Mark Milsome, was a talented cameraman who was killed whilst filming a stunt in Ghana on the set of the BBC/Netflix series ‘Black Earth Rising’ in 2017. The coroner at the inquest concluded that “shortly before the execution of the stunt, the risk of Mr Milsome being harmed or fatally injured was not effectively recognised, assessed, communicated or managed”.
Thank You to everyone for your continued support and contributions to build a wonderful legacy in Mark Milsome’s memory.
