gun.ctrl is a series of five short animations, created for Umut Vakfı – an organization discouraging possession and use of guns by civilians.

First three films in the series (01: Kutluyoruz – we’re celebrating, 02: ”¢REC and 03: Bir taÅŸla iki kuÅŸ – two birds with one stone) are a small trilogy, all focusing on the different outcomes of a similar event – an anonymous celebration involving shooting bullets into the air. Fourth movie (04: At, avrat, silah) takes its roots in an old Turkish proverb, claiming that a true man is defined by his three possessions: his horse, woman and the gun. The fifth movie (05: Her yaÅŸa uygun – suitable for all ages) consists of three short segments, each exposing the true nature of unprovoked gun use.

Entire project was shot and produced with virtually no budget, thanks to the dedication and enthusiasm of the entire team.
