Can Yaman / Quotation:
With Daydreamer’s finale having been screened in Turkey, for some time I have been taking part in different events in various countries. I have been met with a very warm response in the countries to which I have been invited. Mipcom is a very important fair for the sector. It was a source of great pride to have the experience of taking part in such an important platform with two separate images and two separate projects of mine. For me one of the special aspects of the market was that for the first time a poster was prepared for an actor, independent from the special projects. It was also a special moment for me that my fans waited patiently for me in front of the poster. Separately, while I was at the fair I gave interviews to the media of more than 10 countries. While I was giving the interviews, one of the nice surprises was that our colleagues from the press had closely followed the work I have done. Indeed, despite our series still not having been screened in some countries, it was really nice that there was such great interest and shows of affection. To be honest, it is a powerful motivation for me that the projects in which I am involved have been sold to so many countries and have attracted so much interest on the channels on which they have been screened.
