Born in 1974, in Istanbul, studied in Kadıköy Anadolu High School, I have completed my double major in Radio TV Film and Photography at the University of North Texas in Denton Texas, U.S.A in 1997, after studying 1 year of Jazz Drums in Music Department. I started my career as an Inferno Artist after completing a course of Discreet Logic for compositing and creating 2D motion graphics for commercials and feature films in 1998. I have changed my path to become a director and shot numerous music videos for Turkish bands, as well as for foreign artists, Fredrika Stahl of Sony Music, EMI and Universal Music. I have started directing TV commercials in 2005 for international brands Crate&Barrel, MiniCooper, Lay's, Fox, Nivea, Henkel, Nestle, FashionTV, Turkish Airlines, working with global agencies, Publicis, Bbdo, Tbwa, Saatchi, had Publicis won EFFIE award for NESCAFE "One Cup for Friends" in 2014. I have shot the documentary in 2015, "Staff Benda Bilili" meaning "Look beyond Apperarances," about Infantile Paralysis and Passion for Music in Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa, for THY Turkish Airlines, which won me an official screening at LAIFF Los Angeles Independent Film Festival in 2016 and Gold Prize in Art Without Limits Festival in Kosovo in 2020. My enthusiasm still grows on Cinema Verité documentary, creative commercials and playing drums.
We are looking forward to the next shoot in İstanbul!
“I would like to thank Alihan and FPS crew for the amazing job on the Turkcell project. From the bidding process and throughout the entire project. It was a pleasure to work with FPS Protuctions. Alihan’s knowledge of the production process and understanding of the US style of production made this job run very smoothly. After the shoot I received emails from the director and the US crew, telling me it was one of the best production experiences they ever experienced. They throughly enjoyed working with FPS and felt totally supported on the very challenging job.”
