BEHIND THE SCENES OF CREATIVITY: WITH MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTOR SEYİTHAN KARTAL


The Creative Journey of Expression


Today, we had the opportunity to meet with Seyithan Kartal, a successful director who has contributed to the music videos of many famous names in the music industry. In our interview with him, we explored interesting details about his perspective on music video directing, artistic philosophy, and his career.


 

- HELLO, FIRST OF ALL, CAN WE GET TO KNOW YOU?


SEYITHAN KARTAL: Of course, I'm Seyithan Kartal, working as a music video director. Throughout my career, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with artists such as UZI, LVBEL C5, and Eftelya.


- HOW DID YOU START IN MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTING?


SEYITHAN KARTAL: Actually, I had previous experience in the field of cinema, working as an assistant director and in various roles. However, the allure of music video directing captivated me, leading me to transition into this field.


- IN THIS INTERVIEW, YOU MENTIONED THAT THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE OF SHOOTING A MUSIC VIDEO IS TIME CONSTRAINTS. HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THIS?


SEYITHAN KARTAL: Yes, indeed, time management is a critical factor. We often need to complete the shoots in a single day, requiring fast and well-planned work. Through experience, I've learned to overcome this challenge over time.


- AMONG THE ARTISTS YOU'VE WORKED WITH ARE POPULAR NAMES LIKE UZI AND LVBEL C5. HOW DOES WORKING WITH THESE NAMES MAKE YOU FEEL PROUD?


SEYITHAN KARTAL: Certainly, working with these names is a source of great pride for me. However, for me, every artist is valuable in every project, regardless of their fame. I believe that everyone holds the same value for me.


- WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO AMATEUR ARTISTS?


SEYITHAN KARTAL: They need to work hard and be consistent in line with their beliefs and dreams. The rest comes as details and experience.


- HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED DIRECTING A FEATURE FILM?


SEYITHAN KARTAL: Yes, I have considered directing a feature film in the past. However, I decided to stay in the field of music video directing because it is a faster and more dynamic process.


- WHAT DOES MUSIC MEAN TO YOU?


SEYITHAN KARTAL: Music is like a form of teleportation for me. When you put on headphones and get lost in melodies, it transports you to a completely different world. Music is a magical thing for me, and both creating and listening to it are enchanting experiences.


- FINALLY, WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS IN YOUR CAREER IN THIS FIELD?


SEYITHAN KARTAL: I always aim to do better work. I want to improve myself by working with different styles and artists. My goal is to push my creativity beyond limits and provide audiences with unforgettable experiences.


- THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE INTERVIEW.


SEYITHAN KARTAL: Thank you. See you soon.



We thank Director Seyithan for this inspiring interview. Describing music as "something like teleportation," the director shared his passion for his work and his place in the enchanting world of music. We eagerly anticipate his future projects.
