About

Mahmut is a film director from London.

The journey started as a kid who made sci-fi epics with vacuum cleaners as props to having his short films DOMINION and DAY ONE screened at SCI-FI London Film Festival, Bafta-qualifying Aesthetica and acquired by the popular sci-fi platform DUST. 

He has directed videos for clients such as David Beckham, eBay, iRobot, Pepsi, as well as directing the official London Olympics Torch Relay 2012 video which was sent out to millions of people.

Mahmut's latest short film 'Close Shave' has received press coverage from Screen Rant, Comicbook, CBR, Slash Film and more. 

And it all started from space operas with vacuum cleaner alien props. Who knew, huh?
