We are proud to share some comments from our clients which shot with us.
Our set experience was incredible. Istanbul is a melting pot and Cappadocia is like the moon or a Star Wars Movie.... Turkish people are very proud about their country. Friendly, polite, professional and very hard on business....I am very proud about the personal relations we developed during the course of this shoot. Also about the success of shooting in 3 different places every day and in all the locations asked by the direction team. It was a very big and difficult production but FPS crew was great! We had a delay to release the equipment to make it for the first day of the shoot, in less than 24 hours FPS could rent new equipment and crew bringing them to Cappadocia to start our shootings respecting the schedule. FPS was very fast and professional.
RODRIGO TAPIAS, Producer
Thank you very much for a great shooting experience , your crew was highly efficient, warm and very productive under difficult and tough terrain of Kemaliye . It would be a pleasure to shoot again with you and your team.

I really don’t know if anything could be done differently or better. It was a very good experience. The team was very polite and professional. They were disciplined. What else can one expect from a production team. The best was the craft service team. They relentlessly served tea and other snacks. We have learned quite a few things from FPS team and would surely like to implement them in our production.

THANK YOU - ISTANBUL
Shooting in Istanbul is great, wonderful texture… The Crew was very professional, and made it easy to accomplish what we needed to do. I think FPS was a joy to work with all around. FPS does a great job with explaining the process of filming in Turkey, and guiding us through it. All around, we had a wonderful experience. I can't wait to get back to Istanbul for another shoot!”
James Blom, Production Supervisor
FOR EVERY YOU
Istanbul is a great and multicultural city, which gives you endless possibilities to shoot, pretending to be at another place in the world. You can find really old places and buildings, but as well very modern ones. The crew is very experienced and they do know what they do and how to work efficient. We are very happy with the result of the work and we would definitely go again to Istanbul shooting further films with FPS Production.
Stephan Brockmann, Producer
STYLE OF ITS OWN
The city of Istanbul is amazing and the people are fantastic. I enjoyed very much my stay but it was too short... The set experience was very good. Set construction team was excellent. As well all the rest of the crew, we thank all of the crew sincerely…
VERONICA ORUETA, Producer
I was expecting more “exotic” service, didn’t know the market in Turkey at all instead I met professionals on the top level. I felt super comfortable with this production which wasn’t easy. Finding good location was a task because had to find something that looks like Poland in Istanbul. You found it. People on the set, security of the street was all great, so… What can I say? You have great team that has a huge potential, all the time being there I felt that you work like one organism.
MIECZYSLAW BIELAWSKI, Producer
I would say FPS did a great job overall and can handle any type of production. I absolutely loved Istanbul. Growing up in a big city myself, I found it to have every possible amenity that a major city should have and more. It was wonderful to see a city thriving in modern convenience as well as retaining its own culture and traditions. My set experience was a very pleasant one. FPS performed as a production company should, with an obvious heavy level of experience. The production overall was excellent. The transitions from shooting TV to print happened very seamlessly which was a major concern of the agency and client… I would love to opportunity to work with them again and shoot in Istanbul.
JASMINE BATISTA, Agency Producer
I was delighted by the shear spectrum of Istanbul. Historic intertwines modern, contemporary surrounds classic. It truly is the crossroads of the world. The city has a pulse not unlike New York that you feel as soon as you arrive. Because Istanbul actually straddles Europe and Asia, we visually had the best of both worlds for our ‘location set’, which translated into amazing production values especially with the use of the drone camera.

GREY New York
We were very surprised of the beauty of Istanbul. It's such a beautiful and interesting city. With a lot of friendly and creative people. We had a difficult start but at the end I think we obtained what we wanted to have. I think communication was a bit difficult in Art Department, but from the moment we knew what we had to do it all went 'smoothly'. We were very happy with our 1st AD Aylin, the grip crew was really fantastic, such a hard workers! The first time we saw one of our fly guy's blowing up was pretty 'horrible', at that point we thought 'we gonna have major problems'. Luckily FPS found us new people to make good fly guys.... the proportions were not right. Also the fact that our workspace for art department on the first day was a citypark was quite unusual to us, but fun. Specially with the fantastic weather we had. It was a tough shoot with a beautiful result.
Eva Van Riet, Producer
My experience was great. All crew, people, everyone was great to deal with. Pretty good standard, which was good. No surprises and everything was run professionally. Shooting through the bazaar was fun, especially stealing shots without people noticing. Shooting the balloons in Cappadoccia was fun also… I wish I wasn’t working so I could enjoy it.
MARK TOIA, Director
İstanbul is a dynamic and exciting city and the Turkish people are friendly and welcoming. FPS did a first class job under difficult circumstances. The process confounded all my expectations of working in that part of the world.

TUI ZEIT FÜR NEUE ZEIT
We experienced Turkey as a very friendly and not only literally as a warm country.?It was a pleasure working with you guys. Efficient, friendly and fun to work with. Jumping from a rock that was 10m high into the ocean, the convenient travelling with the FPS coach (and we really had to travel a lot), our daily Bowling session. FPS: What could have been done differently/better on the FPS side? Marc: Are you serious? A company that even has branded table cloth?
Marc Haferbusch, Executive Producer
Too short time to enjoy completely the town, but enough to perceive the power coming from every corner. Our shooting went easily. Everybody was really kind and efficient.
