Travel Channel “Turkey A to B”
James Lockard
 [Director]

“Having created and produced/directed well over two dozen series for broadcasters ranging from Discovery, Travel Channel to Nat Geo I have shot in over 70 countries. Having a trusted local fixer/producer is vital to the success of the production. Cem is one of the best fixer/producers I have worked with, he is experienced, reliable and trustworthy. If you are shooting in Turkey your first call should be to Cem!”

Nine Network “The Lost Stories of Gallipoli”
Howard Sacre [
Producer]

“I have worked with many fixers in many countries and Cem Yucesoy is up there with the best. He is the quiet achiever who gets things done fast and effectively, without fuss. He fits into a team, maintains a ready smile and is trustworthy. If he says ” it will happen” then it WILL happen. He has excellent contacts throughout Turkey and a mastery of logistics to make a shoot go smoothly.”

ABC “Waves of Anzac Cove”
Leilani Tomsazewski [Production Manager]

From the busy alleys of Istanbul to the shoreline and hinterland of Eceabat, nothing was too much trouble and everything went without a hitch. From changing charter boat brief and then and adding an additional vessel to the mix, nothing was too much trouble and there was always a solution, never any problems. Cem, you made our time in Turkey memorable in the best possible way, and the Waves of ANZAC Cove team could not have done it without you. I would not hesitate to recommend you to any other team filming in your beautiful part of the world.

RTE Television “When The Sea Ran Red”
Ann Marie O Callaghan [
Producer/Director]

We nicknamed him – Cem the Gem! He was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. Before the trip, he organised the permissions we needed for our visas and advised us on how to go about things. He made everything so easy – hiring the car – picking us up from our hotel, negotiating his way through Istanbul traffic and down to the Gallipoli peninsula; he liaised with locals to get contributors and colour shots; he came up with ideas for locations and was always aware or what would make a good shot. We were on a very tight budget and Cem was very aware of that. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Cem to anyone.

Discovery Channel “Wildest Middle East / Wild Turkey”
James Hemming [Producer Director]

From the outset Cem was integral to our three-week wildlife shoot across Turkey. The shoot was challenging and Cem never sat back for one moment; constantly on hand, organizing logistics or mucking in with carrying/looking after kit. He’s very experienced and efficient on all levels. He gained all the film permits, effortlessly dealt with any red tape, but most importantly he is passionate about making the best film. He’s wonderful with dealing with contributors and during the setup he was on hand to research, recce, find local scouts who could help track species and most importantly preempting changes to our schedule.

Jeremy Campbell

Field Producer]

“Cem and his team were excellent at accommodating our many last minute requests for locations, equipment, transport and people on the ground. His in-depth knowledge of Turkey, and its culture, was invaluable in making the show work and he was always ready with information and advice. He worked all hours of the day to make sure everything was in place when we needed it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”

ITV1 “The Search For Noah's Ark” with Joanna Lumley
Matt Bennett [Director]

“Cem was involved during the pre-planning, the recce and the shoot. At all times he offered advice on filming in Turkey but also came up with some really fabulous editorial ideas. Cem is great person to spend time with and at all times has the wellbeing of the crew on his mind. His planning and attention to detail on the schedule is impeccable. I cannot fault a single moment we spent with Cem and can thoroughly recommend him as the person to hire for your shoot. I have worked throughout the world with many different location producers and I can honestly say that Cem is up there with the best.”

“Cem was able to obtain a film permit for us and arrange all travel logistics in just two days. Without him, we would have lost our story. Everything ran smoothly on the shoot thanks to his professional and friendly manner. I highly recommend him for any shoot in Turkey.”
