Core Team

Shiv Verma

Founder & Director

An alumnus of the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad with a Masters in Film and Video Communication, Shiv worked as a copywriter across agencies like McCann and Contract before founding Mezzanine Media. Deeply interested in human stories and character-led dramas, Shiv's independent short 'Ode to Broken Things' has gone on to win accolades at multiple film festivals around the world. 

Aakshee Gakhar
Vaibhav Yadav

Managing Partner & Executive Producer

Creative Producer & Chief DIY Officer

The loudest voice on set, Aakshee is our Executive Producer. Other than drawing budgets and stopping the creative team from exceeding them, she is also an immensely talented photographer and actor. We not only leverage her years of experience as a producer across Television and Digital with the likes of History Channel, NDTV, National Geographic but also use her as our in-house content recommendation officer. 

If you were to ever hear Vaibhav's stories when he is not working with us, you'd suspect him to be a spy straight out of a Bond film. How else does one explain a mysterious pigeon attack, leaving him partially blind for a few days before his sight restored itself, thanks to our prayers? A man of many talents, Vaibhav's love storytelling coupled with his intense love for technique allows him to handhold us to creating solid work.
