- Mark Love, Video Director, Ologie
Mark Love was raised in Mentor, OH, a suburb of Cleveland. Since he could hold a crayon, it seems like he’s always loved telling stories with pictures, whether that was drawing, photography, or video. So after High School, Love studied illustration and sequential art at Kent State and then moved to the east coast and attended The Joe Kubert School (in Dover NJ) – where he was able to learn from some of the greats of the comic book medium.After graduating, Love spent a few years working with flat art and design, but missed the storytelling, and jumped into video full time. Things went well, the work kept coming, and he’s now been working in video and film for the last 15 years.
In 2007, Love did a little work for Ologie – which ended up being a great opportunity. He moved back to Ohio, where he’s been working with Ologie ever since.

About the moderator:
Director of Operations, Johnny DiLoretto is a megalomaniacal, Columbus media personality who, in addition, to his devotion to the Gateway Film Center is also devoted to plastering his face across the film center’s screens whenever possible (see Columbusland). Alas, he must share that real estate with President and Programmer and insult-producer Chris Hamel. Johnny is also a self-loathing neurotic who hates writing his own bio.
