“Without you” project initiated when I was given a pre-Production Panasonic GH4 camera body to test before its global launch. Then a simple test evolved to become a short film project when I realized the great potential of the camera. It took 10 days to turn this project from a blank sheet of paper to a successful yet challenging shoot that combined the talents of 14 talented and dedicated friends.
I would love to thank all the people that made this project possible.
Stay tuned for the “making of” blog post where I will share with you all the behind the scenes fun as well as the lessons learned during the production of “Without you”
I hope you enjoy it…
Over than 3500 km traveled in 20 days, capturing landscapes from the bluish tones of Pamukkale to the warm ones of Cappadocia, the all passing by a great variation of colors, lights and weathers through six other cities.
I've crossed Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Ephesus, Istanbul, Konya; and tasted baklava, kunefe, doner, the turkish tea; and got the chance to meet the soul of Turkey, its people.. and got their smiles and their hospitality.
This is Turkey lived by me from north to south, and I hope you enjoy it :)
