He directed commercials for global brands like Microsoft, Nestle, Honda and Rolls Royce in his distinctive style.

In 2018, he collaborated with Altuğ Gültan, and they started producing projects together. Burak's presentation, "Flight of Imagination," prepared for National Geographic, received high praise. Working with a foreign producer for the first time, he introduced the visual and auditory delights of Istanbul through a film he created.

Afterwards, he took the director's chair for impactful documentaries for Red Bull, National Geographic, and Netflix, also serving as the editing director for each project. Documentaries like "25 Litre," "Terim," and "Akıncı" broke viewing records, successfully bringing his storytelling style to large audiences.

In addition to long-form storytelling, Burak began creating film trailers. Producing alternative and critical trailers for films he admired, he caught the attention of production companies. In 2022, he founded the company Fine Cut Pictures, and his path crossed with Netflix Turkey. Alongside a talented editing team, he started designing film trailers in various styles, reflecting the director's vision differently. While creating trailers, he began improving his skills in sound editing and sound design, achieving success in music editing for the projects he directed.

Over the past 12 years of his storytelling journey, Burak continuously develops himself, embracing new adventures. Working with a multifunctional discipline in all aspects of filmmaking, he continues to create memorable films.
