Mark Schwartz - founder/Creative director

From entertainment to tech, sports to finance, tires to toys, Mark has created an abundance of award-winning video content since before Y2K. Whether scripted or documentary, live action or animated graphics, micro or substantial budget, his MO remains the same: find the story, tell the story, fade to black.

In 2007, he co-founded the Urban Oasis Film Academy to provide at-risk youth of Los Angeles with the opportunity to tell their stories while awakening the possibility of employment in media.

We have worked with the team at Alchemy on several projects, over a period of many years. We have had nothing but good experiences. The quality of their work is top notch, and perhaps most important of all, our talent really enjoyed working with Mark.
— Mark Taub, Editor-In-Chief, Pearson Education
The piece Mark produced for us featuring Andrew Garfield is brilliant and done on a shoestring budget. Garnering support as a non-profit depends upon how well you can tell your story. In that area we have a secret weapon: Mark Schwartz and his fun and professional team at Alchemy.
— Tony Lore, CEO/Founder, Youth Mentoring
