Istanbul One

One movie. One city. One day. One second shots.

Someone suggested the challenge of making a movie using only one second shots. These one second clips are all shot in one city (Istanbul), on one day, on one side of the Bosporus (the European side), and backed by one audio track. This is Istanbul One.

This video is intended to demonstrate what I see and what attracts my attention in my day to day life in Istanbul. I am not trying to make the city look good. Nor am I trying to make it look bad. It is what it is and this is how I see it.
