Guss Mallmann

Director, Editor



Guss Mallmann is an award-winning Brazilian-Australian Editor & Director, based in Melbourne and available to work fully remote, or on-site nationally and internationally. He’s a member of the Australian Screen Editors Guild (ASE).

Nurtured in the Digital Age of cinema, Guss embraced an unconventional path, mastering celluloid film techniques, operating Steenbecks and 16/35mm cinema cameras. Most recently, Guss is embracing the AI revolution and learning new tools – including the one used to create this AI-generated portrait of him. After all, did you really think that spending 24h a day in a dark room would give him a suntan?

As an Editor, his credits include the Cannes Lions 2023 campaign entry film for Samsung, which won the Grand Prix that year. Moreover, Guss has assembled high-end productions which included talents such as Usain Bolt, Ricky Gervais, Macklemore, Kevin Dylon and others.

As a Director, his music video ‘Like People’ earned a J Awards 2018 nomination for Australian Music Video of the Year, and secured the #2 spot on Rage FIFTY 2018 — only trailing Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’. Other achievements include National Geographic’s Cosmos Interstitials with Ann Druyan and The Relentless Series featuring Anna Meares on channel Nine.

In 2015, Guss wrote and directed the post-horror short A Private Session. Through its deconstructed narrative, the film immerses the audience in the chilling mental landscape of women grappling with gaslighting and psychological violence. A Private Session was nominated for film competitions in Australia, UK, USA, Italy, Mexico and Colombia.

Beyond filmmaking, Guss indulges in his passions: composing music, travelling, painting, and collecting vintage lenses.
