Selam! (Hi!)

I'm a Freelance Animator, even more of a traveler, some kind of naturey type and one of those people who always sit in weird pretzely poses.

 

I'm from Istanbul, Turkey. I currently live & work in Atlanta, GA, USA. I graduated from SCAD in 2019 with a BFA in Animation. I mainly work in After Effects animation but tend to mix a lot of mediums. I'm experienced in taking a lead creative role and developing full concepts in a variety of styles.


Similar to my short film "Escape", I love basing entire projects off of a ~mood~ then experimenting in hybrid pipelines to get some super stylized look. I love making & being inspired by pieces that reflect a sense of childish wonder, but are driven by a mature tone. My dream career is one where I can make knowledge more accessible by animating subjects that pull from my endless interest in nature, space, science and research.

 

If none of the above, I'm probably doodling something with forests and trees or an adventurous curly-haired kid who looks kind of like me :)

 

I'm always happy to connect, share ideas or grab some tea - feel free to send me an email! 🌻
