A fearlessly creative and beautiful, smart but witty, and a forward thinking sweetheart, Bo is the best female producer in Istanbul. 

She has studied in a business school in Michigan. Her father being a sculpture, she has always been artistic. After reading Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead, her passion for filming it, lead her to double major in film studies. Graduated to become a director in 1996, she has started working in the ad industry, as an assistant director to foreign directors working in Istanbul. She has worked her way up to the position of a producer and yet she was a natural born, never the later, she has become an executive.

Bo is the Managing Director and the Executive Producer of DEPOfilm, a well known production company in Istanbul, for the last 12 years. DEPOfilm, being an inspiring home for directors, is proud to produce commercials and feature films for the local market and mainly focuses on quality.  It collaborates to create the best in advertising, entertainment and the arts. Having served World’s leading brands, agencies, directors and the ads and awards that has been left behind, it has become the leading production company in Turkish market with her vision and contribution towards it’s growth.

Bo’s energy shines through in all her work accomplished. She approaches each project with the same enthusiasm and professionalism. She is short, but long enough to spread any where and every where, thus she can pop up at European producers board meeting or New York fashion show or Sotheby’s art auction and maybe at Ciclope Festival this November.
