Who We Are

Our Story

Civil Editors was founded in Istanbul by long time friends & film editors in the summer of 2012 with the aim of creating a platform at which they could share their experience, knowledge and skills. After years of experience and hard work, joining forces came in handy.

  • Edited over 1000 commercials for local and international clients
  • Found our selves editing on sets, @different studios/cities/countries
  • Worked side by side with directors to tell their stories
  • Assisted artists shape their audiovisual work
  • Designed movie trailers for producers
  • Helped young directors with their pitching videos
  • Lectured in the academia
  • Started to work on a book and a podcast project
  • And…. we cherished collaboration, refreshed our hopes and most importantly, made everyone at our editing room love the most creative process of film making: Editing.

For upcoming adventures, please contact our lovesome producer Sıla Bektaş Sayın.

The Atelier

Located in the heart of the city, at one of the most popular neighbourhoods of the town, our studio is a private and spacious place designed by editors for editors. After years of working long hours in tiny, depressive rooms, we decided to build a studio where one can enjoy the process of shaping dreams. The studio holds two fully equipped editing suits with an extensive music and SFX library, a cinema projector and a surround sound system for a healthy editing and a screening environment. Oh and there is always good coffee, so swing by whenever you can. Our friendly host Muammer Tukenmez will make sure that you feel at home.

*Civil Editors are cutting w/ Avid Media Composer running on Macintosh Operating Systems.
