Mashup Pictures has a reputation of doing creative and innovative work and is led by producer and director Rob Innes. We specialise in multi-platform collaborative approaches. We're not only known for documentary and comedy, but how we mix genres and formats together.
We've worked with ABC TV, Junkee, YouTube, The Guardian, Melbourne Museum and ABC's iview.
We've won and been nominated for awards in Australia and around the world including the Screen Producer's Awards and Australian Director's Guild Awards; screened in international festivals, featured on Gogglebox Australia, listed as a 'must watch', and listed as one of the best programs of the year from The Guardian and NME.
Our development slate consists of both documentary and narrative projects, plus concepts that blur genre lines.
