“I am Hasan Meritaş. I was born in Mardin in 1990. I completed primary and high schools in Mardin. I spent my years in high school by doing sports as I was in a sports high school. Along sports, I did volunteering in social responsibility projects of many civil society organizations during high school years. After high school I got into Mustafa Kemal University. I transferred from Mustafa Kemal University to Marmara University. I was graduated from Marmara University Department of Sport Management. I made two short films during my undergradute study. I participated in short and full-length film projects. During my undergraduate study I also tried to improve myself in cinema theory in order to improve in cinema. I wanted to study cinema in university after high school but I was not able to do non-area preference as I graduated from a sports high school. I decided to study cinema for master degree when I was preparing for the university. I was accepted to Northwestern University Department of Cinema Television in U.S for master degree. When I was searching for a scholarship, I’ve come across Yücel Foundation. Yücel Foundation’s approach and care caused me to come one step closer to my dreams. I believe that my studies in U.S. will contribute to my academic career and films that I’m going to make, because, the department that I am going to study wants to create a new movement in world cinema. When I improve myself in narrative ciema theoratically and pratically, I believe that I will contribute to world cinema, too.”
