Gürcan was born 1984 in Germany, but grew up in Istanbul, where his roots are.
He started in 2009 to work at first as an assistant editor, later as an editor on various feature films, where his passion and interest in montage became clearer.
His analytical-emphatic approach, sensitivity for nuances and gestures in the body language, eye for aesthetics, dynamical as well as passion feeling of rhythm and understanding of storytelling, enable him to convey the story from idea to the end product as a homogeneous feeling.
To strengthen these skills he decided to study editing at the prestigious Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. After graduating in 2019 he has been working and living in Berlin as a freelance editor.
