Istanbul – Behind the Scenes

June 2015

We arrived in Istanbul to shoot the last of our “24 Hours in” series with Marriott. Istanbul sits on both sides of the Bosphorus river, physically and metaphorically straddling two continents. Previously the capital of various empires, Istanbul remains a melting pot of culture and architecture. Walking through the bustling streets, we were inundated with rich sights, sounds and smells. In an attempt to capture a unique perspective of the city, we traveled with our good friend and free runner, Tim Shieff. Tim managed to perform some incredible stunts on the rooftops of the old city.

Jack and Josh were lucky enough to make a short trip to Cappadocia as well. Cappadocia is a region in central Turkey famed for its otherworldly geography formed from erosion of volcanic deposits millions of years old. Locals carved a network of homes, buildings and tunnels into this beautiful landscape.

Thousands of miles, countless hours of editing, and three cities in different corners of the globe have gone in to creating this series. Thank you to everyone who helped us along the way and joined us on this global sojourn through watching our videos.
