HELLO, I'M

Max Mezger.

Editor, film maker and aspiring producer

 

About

Since I started making stop-motion home movies at 10 years old, I've been obsessed with producing and editing films. I am a recent graduate from Harvard University having studied Art, Film and Visual Studies. I am originally from Melbourne, Australia and now based in Los Angeles. With 12 years of video production experience and 4 years of industry-based experience, I'm always looking for the next opportunity.
