Raised in the Appalachian steel town of Ashland, KY, Marius earned a bachelor’s degree in Russian Literature at The University of Kentucky before moving on to studying film at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
“Community seems to be one of the only production companies out there that has a stable of Directors that are all doing something different,” says Crowne. “Each one of us has a clear, distinct vision, and I love the idea that when I get put up for a job, it’s because I’m the best person for the job -- that my style was right for the client -- rather than just being a face in a crowd of very similar looking faces.”
Crowne joins a roster of directorial talent at Community Films, which includes Directors Seth Gordon, Jared Hess, Michael Patrick Jann, Matt Smukler, Pam Thomas, Clay Tweel, Clay Williams, and Emil Möller.
“We are so excited to have found Marius and to have him join our team of Directors here at Community,” explains Executive Producer/Partner Lizzie Schwartz. “He is an extremely talented and creative storyteller, with a wide breadth of experience even though he is really a newcomer.”
“After submitting his reel to ‘Shoot Magazine’ for the New Director Showcase, we were thrilled to hear from the Editors that they agreed Marius’ talent is unique and innovative, and worthy of being part of the showcase this year,” adds Community Executive Producer Carl Swan.
