“A creative artist while in medical school Mark helped institute and develop the video teaching lab where he was a producer, cameraman and editor on 12 teaching videos. In the years following his graduation in his career as a surgical podiatrist, Mark helped advance many of the philosophies and techniques of Minimal Incision (Minimal Traumatic) surgery as applied to the foot far before it was popular and has 8 published researched papers. He has also traveled throughout the United States and the world lecturing, including to Madrid, Spain and five visits to the People’s Republic of China.” Wrote Olga Lindsay on Mark Valinsky IMDB.
With a great respect for classic Hollywood Mark is interested in all aspects of the film and television industry. Mark brings to the entertainment field a certain degree of professionalism and determination along with a good mixture of mid west friendliness, dependability and ethics combined with a proper dose of East Coast aggressiveness, plus a natural pursuit of determined excellence to get things done.
Because of their accomplishments in many fields, Mark points out his respect and admiration for people like Clint Eastwood well known and respected for his many diverse talents – politician, composer, musician, film director, producer, and actor.
Mark has initiated Valinsky Media Group http://www.ValinskyMediaGroup.com who has a number of divisions integrated in performing professional services in Public Relations and Marketingfor select clients, involved in the Entertainment Business as well as the financing and production of films.”
While many believe a secret to success is to do one thing well, Mark Valinsky feels you can also be successful by doing the many things you are passionate about and doing them well. The statement “A jack of all trades, a master of none.” really doesn’t always apply, nor should it.
He uses a few examples and states: “Can you imagine what would have happened if someone convinced Leonardo di Vinci that “Leonardo, maybe you should just paint and forgot about all these other crazy ideas that pop into your head.”
Or to Thomas Edison, considered one of the most prolific inventors in history, holding 1,093 US patents in his name, “You know Tom, the phonograph was enough.” Or to Clint Eastwood; “Clint I like your acting, Why don’t you forget about your production company, music composing and directing? You’ll never win an Academy Award if you try too many things.”
