AUGUST 2014: I am now editing my project HASRET (Yearning) - a kind of supernatural expressionist documentary about Istanbul. We should complete the film some time in the autumn.

Meanwhile, my film WELCOME TO KARASTAN is finally completed after many absurd delays. WELCOME TO KARASTAN is a comedy, set in a fictitious Central Asian/Caucasian country called "Karastan" and dealing with (at least some of) the absurdities of making films, and fillm festivals. Starring Matthew Macfadyen, Myanna Buring, Noah Taylor, Richard van Weyden and Lasha Ramishvili. The film will have its premiere at the Montreal Film Festival at the end of the month.

Meanwhile my other film project, A MIRACLE, is looking positive for a winter 2014/2015 shoot in the UK and Turkey. If it gets made it should be my most mainstream film to date.

My novel CATHEDRAL is two thirds complete and on hold until I can find the time to finish it! My new script, ONE EYE THE MOON, is being developed by Warp Films and the BFI: I will continue work on it over the summer.
