The art of film making is always against standardization and to be mundane. It shows resistance to memorization, molding and laziness. Emre Oskay as far as I can see, is one of the rare producers who is aware of these inclinations. He is trustworthy to deliver your project if you want your film to be out of the box.
I have made two films with Emre Oskay and I ended up every time completely satisfied and happy. Three reasons to this: his faithfulness in every circumstances. And he has always fully respected our budget. And he has always found solutions to every problem, even when the situation was impossible. He can do it with magic and he is always quiet. I know I can always trust him.
Four years ago, I worked with Emre Oskay as a Co-Producer in the movie "The Guest" We had a very harmonious cooperation due to his good communication with people. He has a great contribution especially in foreign film sales connections. He helped me a lot with his film-making experience as a colleague. he is incredibly calm. Beyond that, his business friendship is a very good friend due to his wonderful family. May the way be clear for the Sky Films. Hoping that he will achieve new and very good works.
We took the fate of ‘Istanbul story’ into our hands by whatever means at our disposal, whatever the budget - due to the global financial crisis which reduced substantially film funding and production budgets, investors and donors. But no matter the thin budget, Emre remained calm and confident, always searching for solutions to the increasing problems in this demanding common effort. After all, that’s the way to defend and protect the director’s creative work and craft. Working close together in pre-production, preparation and shooting, I appreciated his communication talent and power of arguments, his sensibility, as well his honesty, sincerity and fairness on all issues. Concerning also the terms and conditions for artistic collaborations, productivity and creativity to make better movies. There is a bright future waiting SKY and its mastermind.
