Marc Strong, the founder and creative director at Wienot Films, believes life should be spent following your passions and living your dreams. In 2012, he left a secure job he enjoyed working as a CIA intelligence analyst to pursue his love of storytelling full time. The name Wienot (said “Why Not”) was born from a comment his mom made one Christmas as he pondered whether he could make video production a career. She simply asked, “Why not?” That simple question was the genesis of a new and exciting path for Marc.
Since then, Marc has turned a part-time side job making videos into a full-time career. He’s built a talented team of writers, illustrators, animators, composers, and voiceover artists around him to produce highend explainer videos for companies like Canon, Gatorade, and Cisco. Their speciality is taking large amounts of complicated, confusing and/or potentially boring information and making it clear, concise, and fun. Since getting a foothold in the industry making animated whiteboard videos, Wienot Films has expanded into computer animated and live action films.
Marc didn’t take the typical route to his career, but he credits his diverse training and experiences with enabling him to do what he does today. He admits that entrepreneurship is not without its stresses, but loves being the master of his own destiny where the sky’s the limit.
Here’s a whiteboard video Marc and his team recently completed for Canon that explains 4K lenses (you might recognize the voice!).
