Mark L. Lester has worked as a writer, producer, and director on many high-profile action films over his long career. His first film was Twilight of the Mayas. Lester then worked on many films, such as Stunts, Steel Arena, and Bobby Jo and the Outlaw. His next film Roller Boogie with Linda Blair was a modest success, which he built on with reasonably received exploitation thriller Class of 1984. In 1985 he had his biggest hit with Commando, an Arnold Schwarzenegger action film that grossed over $57 million worldwide. He also produced Armed & Dangerous starring Meg Ryan and John Candy. In 1989 he directed Class of 1999, a very loose sci-fi sequel to Class of 1984.

Mark Lester married Dana Dubovsky, who he now works with and had two children, Jason and Justin. He also founded American World Pictures, and independent production and distribution company. In recent years he has made many films, ranging from action films like The Base to thrillers like Blowback and Hitman's Run. He continues to direct and distribute numerous films and remains dedicated to his craft. Most recently he downgraded to Television and directed Pterodactyl for the Sci Fi Channel.

Other credits include Stephen King's Firestarter (film), Showdown in Little Tokyo starring Dolph Lundgren and Brandon Lee, Night of the Running Man, Extreme Justice, Misbegotten, The Ex, Double Take, and Truck Stop Women.
