Experimental Short Film

“TAKRAR” is an experimental film that celebrates the timeless and intricate beauty of ancient craftsmanship. Filmed in Istanbul, the film takes us on a mesmerizing journey into the past, paying homage to Islamic, Ottoman, Greek, and Byzantine art forms.


It’s hard to believe that I have finished working on this film, which occupied most of my free time over the past two years. When I first visited Istanbul in 2021, I was captivated by its timeless beauty and decided to capture it through my lens. I shot about 2,900 photos, and after editing and animating them, I created about 270 video scenes. Creating each frame of this film was an utter joy, and every new scene brought unexpected and beautiful surprises.


Collaborating with Alex Story on the music for this film was a profoundly enriching experience. Alex went above and beyond to compose music that perfectly complemented the picture. We were also very lucky to collaborate with percussionist Robbe Kieckens, whose playing added a magical touch to the film. I couldn’t be happier with the result.


After months of hard work, I’m thrilled to call this project complete and share it with you.
Takrar is my tribute to ancient arts, and hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
