PRODUCTIONS

Director -PM/PC (Covid SUP)

My creative journey started in Istanbul, Turkey and continues in London, England. I am bilingual and have dual nationality. I am passionate about visual storytelling and engaging audiences with the power of screen and stage productions.  I have years of experience on a broad spectrum of productions; from initial concept, through development to final production. I’ve been lucky to be part of great, bonded teams (Film/TV/theatre/radio) and I would love to maintain that; a positive, calm and an honest approach is always at the heart of every successful team and production. Well-versed in using Microsoft Excel and Google Drive to document and organise information. Ability to see every facet of production with strong project management and decision-making skills.  Brings comprehensive knowledge of fiction and non-fiction production writing, planning and technical operations. Skilled at coordinating production plans, purchase orders and team resources to complete work under tight deadlines.

I am BAFTA Albert trained so I aim to help/encourage productions make sustainable choices that will help the preservation of nature and protect Earth. For more information about Global warming and how you can help, you can visit this link: ACT NOW

I am also a PM with COVID SUPERVISOR Training (by First Option) and used to dealing with crew, talent, clients, managing others, clearances. I work effective at organizing and coordinating shoots and online platform; I love preparing call sheets, prepare/manage budget.

I own photography/videography equipment that is available for small scale productions.
