Born in Edmonton, North London Serkans introduction to cinema was  from the Yesilcam silver-age of Turkish cinema.

Having begun in post-production Serkan was one of foremost assistant editors in the UK having worked on every major UK drama from Spooks, Call the Midwife, Broadchurch and Taboo.

Since making the transition from editor to director, he has directed campaigns for Barclays, Virgin, Honda and Unilever. In 2018 he won the Cannes Silver Dolphin     award and in 2019 was a finalist in the Creative pool industry awards. In 2019 he           was awarded an Evcom Award for a Vogue campaign and has since won another            three EVCOM awards.

           His  short film 'Footprints On The Moon' debuted at the East End film Festival and toured globally with the Lift off Festival where it won the ‘Audience Favourite Award’. 

His latest short film ‘Apex’ starring Charlotte Riley (Peaky Blinders) and Tom Weston Jones (Dickensian) won the Cannes Short Film Competition with ‘Best film’ and ‘Audience Award’.

He has just completed his first feature film 'Exodus' which will be released in 2023.
