TV journalist, fixer, cameraman & director Christian Feiland became a “globe trotter” as a toddler due to his father’s job. As a toddler he lived in Istanbul for 4 years and as a teenager he spent 3 years in Karachi, Pakistan.
In 1993 Chris started his media career at the radio station “Kiss FM Berlin”. As a young journalist he hosted a weekly 2 hour program called “Kiss Young Culture”. Shortly after, he switched to TV and worked as a TV reporter for “Media Port Berlin” – a service provider of “Deutsche Welle TV”. Istanbul became his destination of choice in 1997. He settled down and worked for the German national TV station “ARD” in the Istanbul studio. Later he started his own production company which produces programs for TV stations worldwide. He has worked with various well-known personalities, such as Ivan Watson, Michael Bloomberg, Dieter Kronzucker, Claus Kleber, Anne Will, Tilman Jens, etc.
Feiland has witnessed all major events in Turkey over the past decades – as a journalist, including live stand-ups, as a fixer, editor or cameraman. For larger sets he was the line producer of crews of 20 or more (e.g. arte – “Durch die Nacht mit…” 6 hours non-stop live production with a 15-person set and 6 locations). He arranged contracts with service providers and worked for many years with ORF (Austrian public broadcaster) and DHA (Dogan News Agency). Feiland is fluent in Turkish, English and German. On top of that, Feiland’s family history on the Bosporus goes back an amazing 140 years. (Video)
