Nuri Bilge ceylan

so this is he Nuri Bilge Ceylan turkish director if you haven't seen his films shame on you he is a legend made Climates, Three Monkeys etc what you may not know is that is also an actor (stars in his films) and also an amazing photographer.
Amazingly the hotel im has his work all over the walls I look at his work alot as it is so cinematic and he always shoots in an anamorphic frame


so i'm in istanbul shooting a commercial, haven't seen much yet just working and writing etc but I notice one thing Gee a french exchange lecturer told me and the gang at college that "it is best to walk through the jungle bare foot, if you wear boots in the jungle and step on a snake it will bite you if you step on a snake bare foot it won't" now I haven't actually tried this?!?! but what I think he meant was don't be a bull in china shop, this doesn't work in Turkey everyone is cool kinda of friendly but everyone wears boots and even if they did step on a snake they would jump on it until it stopped biting them.....its a tricky shoot
