Almost a Turkish Soap Opera

Book by AnneRaeVasquez

This is an excerpt from the novel Almost a Turkish Soap...



Anne-Rae Vasquez authored Gathering Dust – a collection of poems, published by AR Publishing Inc. and Teach Yourself Great Web Design in a Week, published by Sams.net (a division of Macmillan Publishing). She wrote the novel and screenplay and directed Almost a Turkish Soap Opera, an award winning feature film and series.

"The popularity of Turkish soap operas or TV series' in the Arab speaking world, Europe and Asia is not well known here in the West. The Turkish TV series' storylines are packed with jealousies and misunderstandings in family life and marriages, mafia encounters, economic problems and societal pressures, which all make for great drama. What I find fascinating in watching Turkish soap operas is how the Middle Eastern culture is woven into the modern way that Turkish people live which has influences from the Western and Eastern societies. I thank our producers Sababa Emporium Film Productions for allowing me to retell the story with so many different lenses – as a feature film, a short and as a series." - writer/director/assoc producer, Anne-Rae Vasquez 

Joseph Khalil, Sababa Emporium Film Productions (http://www.sababaemporium.com) produced the feature film and series. Details of the film production is at http://www.almostaturkishsoapopera.com .

Aside from her artistic work, Anne-Rae Vasquez also manages a web design, production and learner support team, specialized in distance and blended learning at the University of British Columbia in Canada. Her expertise in HTML authoring, Web and multimedia design, and project and database management and being a graduate of the Internet Publishing Certificate Program at the University of British Columbia, has provided her with the opportunity to work with many talented people in the industry. She has over 14 years experience in distance learning with expertise in producing and delivering top notch online courses at university level quality.
