Is the MetaVerse

still happening?!

The Metaverse is wonderfully chaotic, wouldn't you say? A veritable cornucopia of blockchains, an abundance of tokens, smart contracts as far as the eye can see, and a youthful meme language that's simply out of control. Oh, and did I mention? You genuinely need a wallet to join this merry game. But before the panic starts to set in, just as you're about to throw in the digital towel, here's some good news: we've got your back! We're here to navigate you through this dense thicket of information. Consider myself and my team your trusty compass in this wild jungle that is the Metaverse. And one last thing, do us a favor, never call it Metaverse.
DEVELOPMENT: WOMEN HACKERS CLUB.

Liebe, Geld und Ruhm,

- alles für die Wahrheit.

In the gripping cyber-thriller series '[[Women Hackers Club]]', [[Leyla]], a brilliant hacker with an unshakeable penchant for justice, joins forces with a collective of like-minded women as the [[Women Hackers Club]] to take on the '[[Alliance]]', a merciless underground organization. This organization plans to radically change the power structure in Germany with the help of state-of-the-art AI technology, disinformation campaigns and election manipulation. The focus is on a mysterious data leak whose hidden secrets threaten to tip the fate of the nation and could permanently shake the lives and loyalties of our heroines. The [[Women Hackers Club]] is more than just a team - it's the last line of defense between freedom and impending tyranny.

Welcome.

.MY JOURNEY?! PUH.
My DNA consists of Creative Leadership, 
Strategic Focus and Systems Thinking,
TL;DR: Call me. Let's have coffee. Decaf.

Let's try this. I'm Cem, a hands-on creative director working in the vibrant intersection of creativity and technology. Vibrant?! A lot of times pushing to find those moments. From navigating film production to digital content, I've worked my ass off on over 400 video productions and campaigns to sharpen my skillset and to understand every step of the production workflow - always adding 1% on top and always ready to craft narratives that resonate with  target groups. It's exhausting in times, but always driven by intrinsic values and satisfying in the end. With my creative studio CLOCKKNOCK GmbH, my team and I have embraced digital content and video production as our core. Scaling teams and delving hands-on into multiple operations, including demanding post-production hours, helped me a lot to have a very good birdview perspective on all pipelines. I've crafted strategies and narratives that echo across varied audiences and platforms - storytelling wins - not platforms. When I co- founded Germany's first NFT Launchpad in 2021-2022 I learned this the hard way. It's tough to communicate value in a high attention market. I remain optimistic about Blockchain from a technological perspective for a positive impact - a democratic, participatory creator economy within this technology. - and therefore offering Brands & NGOs a web3 kickstart ability through my creative agency. As an early adopter I have spend considerable time to add AI into our workflows, through Story Optimization Tools or Audio Transcription Frameworks. Understanding the workflows and processes AI is disrupting, with CLOCKKNOCK we recently starting guiding and advising business leaders in shaping their AI strategy. If you put in the constant work, good things happen, they say.

Personally, I'm a proud recipient of some scholarships including the Mediengründerzentrum and I am an active supporter of the Turkish diaspora. I spoke at EU cultural and media events related to Turkey and have shared insights on content production, AI, Web3, digital empowerment, and ownership at various industry events, most recently at Blockchance in Hamburg.

In front of our very eyes, the media landscape is shifting, digital identity is going to be one of the biggest challenges and I am all in — constantly adapting, learning, and pushing boundaries, writing, experimenting, trying to go with the flow and if possible ahead of the trends. I'm committed to not just keeping pace but setting the tempo, ensuring narratives that don't just skim the surface but delve deep, resonating powerfully in the dynamic digital era. This was not easy. Hope it did resonate with you. And if you read it till here, please, let's talk and see where we can work together.
