Mark Serrurier was the son of Iwan Serrurier, an inventor who created The Moviola, a simple editing bench that made it possible to edit film.

The device was introduced in 1924 and was redesigned by Mark in 1948. After the redesign, the Moviola was described as being as "sophisticated as moviemaking itself." His redesign earned him an Academy Award of Merit in 1979.

In 1946, he became president of Moviola Manufacturing Co., a business focused on the manufacture and design of editing devices for the motion picture industry.
