See-Saw Films, the sister production company of Transmission Films, was formed in 2008 by Academy Award-winning producers Emile Sherman and Iain Canning.
Based in London and Sydney, See-Saw has produced the Academy Award winning The King’s Speech, starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter; Jim Loach’s Oranges and Sunshine, starring Emily Watson; Australian box office hit comedy The Kings of Mykonos: Wog Boy 2; and Anton Corbjin’s Linear. Currently in production is Hunger director Steve McQueen’s next film Shame, starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan.
Emile Sherman is one of Australia’s leading producers whose films include Berlin Competition film Candy, starring Heath Ledger, Geoffrey Rush and Abbie Cornish; Toronto FIPRESCI Prize winning film Disgrace, starring John Malkovich; award-winning stop motion animation film $9.99; and, as co-executive producer, Golden Globe nominated Rabbit Proof Fence. Emile was the recipient of the Independent Producer of the Year Award at the 2009 Screen Producers Association of Australia Conference.
Before forming See-Saw, Iain Canning oversaw production, sales and acquisitions for Becker International and executive produced Anton Corbijn’s Control and Steve McQueen’s Hunger, both of which have taken prizes at Cannes Film Festival. Iain has worked on films from many leading directors including Terry Gilliam, Neil LaBute, John Curran, Michael Caton-Jones and Roger Michell.
