Academy Award® winning producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman founded See-Saw Films in 2008. With offices in London, Sydney and Los Angeles, See-Saw specialises in international film and television production.

See-Saw’s television division is run by COO TV Hakan Kousetta and Head of TV Jamie Laurenson.


The company recently expanded its UK and Australian operations to include a US office in addition to signing a three-year first look development, financing and production deal for film with New Regency.
The deal follows the success of six-time Academy Award® nominated ‘Lion’, starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara as well as ‘The King’s Speech’ which swept up four Academy Awards® in 2011 including Best Motion Picture, Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for Colin Firth and a Best Director nod for Tom Hooper. See-Saw’s latest film projects include ‘Widows‘ directed by Steve McQueen and starring Viola Davis. See-Saw is currently in development on ‘Ammonite‘ to be written and directed by Francis Lee and starring Kate Winslet and Saorise Ronan.
See-Saw’s television division formally started in 2012 and kicked off with the multi-award winning first season of Jane Campion’s ‘Top of the Lake’. Campion returned with Top of The Lake: China Girl’ starring Elisabeth Moss, Nicole Kidman and Gwendoline Christie which premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for a Golden Globe. 
‘State of the Union’, written by Nick Hornby, directed by Stephen Frears and starring Rosamund Pike and Chris O’Dowd will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival 2019. See-Saw is currently in development on ‘The North Water’ to be written and directed by Andrew Haigh (45 Years), adapted from the novel by Ian McGuire.
