Mark Middlewick has directed commercials for agencies and brands both locally and abroad, including HSBC, Ikea, Absa and Grants.

  

With a distinct eye for idiosyncratic, cinematic storytelling he possesses a knack for drawing out memorable performances from actors thanks to his manipulative Machiavellian techniques.

He’s a filmmaker at heart and his short films have played all over the globe. Mark has even directed Oscar Winning actor Adrien Brody in “The Mascot”, which was produced by Dana Brunetti of Trigger Street Productions.
