We love telling stories.
Whether that’s through corporate videos, short films, TV or web series, our team will tell your story in a way that is totally engaging for your audience.

Founded in 1995 by Stig Wemyss, Mezzanine Films is a passionate team of creative writers, producers, cinematographers, sound and lighting engineers who have literally travelled the world helping to tell our clients’ stories. We’ve filmed on top of Iceland’s glaciers, under Paris’s Eiffel Tower, amongst cowboys at Utah’s rodeos, and amongst African tribesmen in Namibia.

We’ve also filmed in our own backyard, creating corporate video, web series, comedy TV shows and short films, just to name a few. In short, if you’ve got a story you’d like to tell, we have the skills, passion and experience to tell it.

 

Our Staff

Stig Wemyss

Director

Stig is a force of nature. Actor, writer, director and inspiration to all, his energy could power a fleet of submarines.

With over 25 years in the business - both in front of the camera and behind it - Stig’s worked with some of the very best people. And learned more than a thing or too as well. For example, the rare skill of being able to coax memorable performances from actors and regular people alike.

When he’s not in front of the camera he can be found behind it, directing, producing and generally adding his considerable creative firepower to the overall mix. He is our general, our muse, our Stig.

Anthony Littlechild

D.O.P., Camera Operator, Photographer

After studying Film and Television at VCA and Swinburne, he found his way to Mezzanine, where he’s been making significant cinematic statements ever since as a cinematographer, producer, camera operator and photographer.

You name it, Anthony has shot it. And shot it well. TV pilots, short films, commercials, corporate videos and even a new travel television series, Photo Number 6. The only thing that comes close to matching Anthony’s passion for film is his belief in the importance working collaboratively to make every shot memorable.

Lee Robinson

Producer

Lee is our producer. And no one gets stuff done like she does. Need to put a film crew on an Icelandic glacier double quick? Consider it done. Perhaps film a camel wandering down a CBD street? No problem.

Lee takes care of the big picture. And is always across the tiniest details. But what really sets her apart is her ability to make things happen. Efficiently, creatively and without fuss.

John Servedio

Sound Engineer
Ask John how he feels about sound and his response says it all: “Sound is what I live for.” As a musician, sound engineer and sound recordist, John has truly dedicated his life to his craft. And over the past five years, he has dedicated himself to all things sound at Mezzanine.

Riley Sugars

Assistant Director, Associate Producer

Riley has just completed post-production on his newest film, Hatchback, which is a short comedy starring Stephen Curry (The Castle). The film will release in 2022.

His period drama film Rabbits (2019) was an Official Selection at the BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival.
