Omelet is a modern fairy tale, a romantic comedy with an emphasis on humor and more. Romance drops out of a three story window and lands on the protagonists’ heads. It is about two people’s paths crossing without their awareness, and yet they affect each others’ lives in absurd ways. Omelet presents an underlying exploration of the signs that are scattered throughout our daily lives and how they can make a difference to those that are receptive to them.

  
Directors CUNEYT HAVLIOGLU and SERKAN KUTAN

Both born and raised in Turkey, currently live in Seattle. In addition to their work on several local productions since 2001, they have directed the TurkFest film committee in Seattle, introducing contemporary Turkish films to the Northwest audience. Serkan and Cuneyt co-wrote, directed and produced “Omelet”, a short romantic comedy, which is their directorial debut. Omelet was one of the official selections of the New York Short Film Festival. Currently, the duo is developing the script for their second short “Purple Souffle”.
