1. Martin follows his longtime girlfriend to the small town of Hope, an ironically named hamlet where his dreams die a slow death. His settled lifestyle is suddenly disrupted when he must take his best friend's girl, Suzanne, on a trip back to the city for a secret abortion. But when fate conspires to strand them there for 24 hours, they must find a way to kill the time without killing each other. What began as an awkward errand blossoms into a romantic awakening that will change their lives forever and – ultimately – leave them with some very difficult decisions to make.

  3. Airing nationally in the US on over 140 networks, this commercial aims to draw attention to San Diego Zoo's conservation efforts about which you can get more info at http://www.sandiegozooglobal.org

    In this minimalist storytelling piece, the importance of San Diego Zoo's efforts to bring back endangered species to their natural habitat is highlighted using the symbolism of an infant, who represents the future generations, and his toy animals. Here is a quote from SDZG's Facebook page about their US-wide TV campaign: "Selim Mete's "Bring Me Back" takes home the gold in our PSA contest! Thanks to all the filmmakers for their hard work and to you for your votes. We think Selim's tear-jerker conveys the urgency of our mission in a simple, yet profound way. Watch out for his video on over 140 networks around the country..."

  5. Commissioned by Sovereign Bank, inspired by films like Adjustment Bureau and City of Angels here is a different take on a rewards card commercial.

    Sovereign/Santander bank was looking for videos to promote their new rewards credit card "Sphere" while conveying the message that the cardholder's good deeds return to him/her with reward points, and tying it up to the tagline "What Comes Around Goes Around".

    Traditionally, reward card commercials show people getting additional rewards for already self-rewarding activities such as buying oneself clothing, accessories etc. On the other hand, if we were to look at our credit card statements we could easily see that we make a lot of purchases for other without even realizing it, groceries for the family, gift for a loved one etc. So in this commercial I portrayed a character whose purchases benefit other and gets rewarded in exchange. The nature of the men in the suits is quite ambiguous to keep the audience guessing until the reveal in the end meanwhile we hint to their relationship with the purchases as their numbers increase with each purchase.
