a moving picture tour of istanbul

that's right!  it's a video!! i enjoy every single part of making videos, the camera work, direction, editing, production.  in new york, people used to pay me to make videos!  but that started sucking the fun out of it.  so now i make videos only for myself or for projects that sound really, really cool.    


enjoy!  don't forget to tell me what you think! and i definitely recommend watching with sound because the song i used, Safina by Secret Chiefs 3, is perfect for the istanbul setting.

  9. That was sooo good! The editing was flawless. I love the many details shown, not just the beautiful architecture but the little moments, you twirling, the feeding of the cat, the dervishes cut among the belly dancers. BRILLIANT! If only tourist films look like that, we'd all be booking our flights to Istanbul.
