Back my campaign

I began my journey in film working as a volunteer in the International Ankara Film Festival for three consecutive years while I was studying radio tv and cinema at Ankara University.

In my senior year, I received “The Best News Programme Award in Auditory Communication” in the 13th Young Communicator Awards.

After I have graduated in 2001 I moved to Istanbul where I have worked in numerous commercials and hit TV series as 1st AD. In 2006 she wrote and directed a short film called “DJ” for Turkish National Television – Young Filmmakers Project.

Along with my career in TV, I translated the theatre play of Mark Brown; “Around the World in 80 Days” which was later successfully staged in the Turkish State Theatre during the 2014 season.

In 2015-2016 season I have worked as a Chief Drama Officer for two TV series airing on national channels Star TV and Fox Tv.

I currently live in London where I have started my own production company, Amygdala Film Ltd.

"Meeting Jim" is my first feature documentary film as a co-producer. You can see our project and be one of our backers on indiegogo campaign site. Thanks for your support.
