Charlie never imagined that he would one day be lying on the streets of Istanbul getting on eye level with cats, human shoes and car tires in order to shoot a documentary. But after founding Termite Films with his producing partner Ceyda Torun, it became clear that a film had to be made about the Cats of Istanbul. Before this adventure, Charlie graduated from the London Film School with an MA in cinematography, after which he began shooting music videos, commercials, and documentaries in his native Germany and all over Europe. In 2009 he moved to Los Angeles permanently and has since shot the narrative feature films Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain, Blood Moon, and A Country Called Home. He loved every minute of shooting Kedi and can’t wait to go back to Istanbul.
