Alex Sutherland

Alex Sutherland filmed in Turkey in 1995 for the first time with a major British film company. There was a decided lack of local backup for foreign film crews at the time and Alex saw the potential to make a difference. The locations in Turkey were rich in culture and diversity and the local team ambitious and hard-working. This saw Alex take the initiative in marketing the potential of Turkey to foreign film producers as a great place to film and since the late 1990s, he could offer services that were not previously available. In 2018 Alex produced the two seasons of the first Netflix Turkish original series “The Protector”, he’s currently producing two series for Netflix.
