MARK HELFRICH makes his feature film directorial debut with GOOD LUCK CHUCK, the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Mark wanted to be a director since age 12 when he made his first visit to the set of a 16mm educational short that his father had written. His first job was working in a movie theatre, initially as a ticket taker, eventually becoming the Promotion and Arts Director for the Theatre. While attending the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Mark was a projectionist as well as a radio DJ. 

Since moving to Hollywood, Mark has worked as a feature film editor. His credits include the box-office record breaking X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, all three RUSH HOUR films, RED DRAGON, THE FAMILY MAN, MONEY TALKS, PREDATOR, RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD PART II, SCARY MOVIE, among many others. His feature film editorial credits have earned more than one billion dollars at the box office. A long standing collaboration with director Brett Ratner includes other editorial credits, among them the pilot episode of the hit Fox series "Prison Break” and the award-winning music video for Madonna's song "Beautiful Stranger" from AUSTIN POWERS. 

Helfrich is also a published photographer. His books "Naked Pictures of My Ex-Girlfriends” was published in 2000 and "The New Erotic Photography” by Taschen in 2007. Mark currently lives in the Los Angeles area with his wife and two children.
