Founders

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.

Zeynep Santıroğlu (Producer/Director) graduated with a degree in Art History and is fluent in both English and Spanish. Working closely with the ministry of culture she has been producing and directing international documentaries for channels such as BBC, Nat Geo, PBS, Channel 4, Discovery Channel. She has recently produced Turkish Airlines commercial directed by Ridley Scott, the branded films premiered at the super bowl 2019.
