Josh Mawer is available as a freelance Director/Content Producer & Editor, and is also represented by RMK Crew in Australia. He has 15 years of on-set and post-production experience, holds a post grad from the Australian Film, TV and Radio School (AFTRS), and is based in Sydney, Australia.
He directed several episodes of the lesbian dramedy webseries SAME SAME in Brooklyn, currently in talks with distributors. The pilot episode we made in 2013 was rather popular on youtube, gaining a fan base and several awards, which helped us successfully crowdfund to produce the rest of the series.
Josh directed the episode 'Jump' of The Bench Series in Sydney, and the series recently had a cast and crew screening at Palace Cinema Norton St. It was a treat to hear a full cinema react to his sci-fi comedy. It was selected to Melbourne Webfest and Los Anegeles CineFest
He co-wrote and directed Legacy and Opal during a postgrad at the Australian Film, Television & Radio School. Legacy screened at dozens of festivals internationally, including Fantasia and London SciFi, and winning Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Supporting Actor at the North Wales International Film Festival and nominated for the National Irish Science Fiction Film Awards. Audiences have been divided; many intrigued by the transhumanist concepts and others queasy with the exploration of family relationships.
