Set up by Yonca Alpaslan & Burhan Bulut, Sugar Rush is an Istanbul based production house born from ambition of making great commercials- both TVCs and virals.
Our goal is quite simple, we’d like to produce creative ads, work with nice people and we believe that quality work finds its place above the rest.
Sugar Rush is built on a heritage of a large number of commercials and music videos, our partners have spent years cooperating with global brands, top directors and cutting edge advertising agencies.
We don’t aim to be a traditional production house, our offer to our clients is to be their business partner and solution maker with a flexible manner of work, to provide all sorts of different budgets, depending on the project. At Sugar Rush, no project is a “small” project yet no project is treated as secondary. All the jobs we serve are treated equally, no matter the budget total, our approach to the production quality remains the same.
So far we were lucky enough to work with such clients as Microsoft, HSBC, Akbank, Garanti Bank, Pantene P&G, Algida Unilever, Turksat, Petrol Ofisi, Arko Evyap and agencies like Grey Istanbul, Leo Burnett Istanbul, Publicis Yorum, DDF Istanbul, Piramit, THE Reklam and Alpha Dog…
