Alican, I liked the gun shot shots. Was that influenced by the gunshots in "Three Kings"? Also dug the reflection in the sunglasses of Lady X.

Alican and crew:

I don’t post much on these boards, but I feel I have to chime in here and give you all a big Bravo Zulu on your episode. It was fantastic, and you should all be proud! If I were voting on the episodes, I would definitely give yours an unqualified 5.

You certainly captured the feel of a spy drama, and your actors each looked and acted his part skillfully--extra kudos to Gokhan and Murat. I was especially impressed with the action sequence… the shootout was really believable (great sound effects behind that, too) and the fight had a heavy substance to it—it reminded me of the old style of movie fighting before everything became wire fu. I am biased, though – I much prefer that old style of fighting I grew up with in shows like the Rockford Files and Mission: Impossible. We did a kung fu sequence in ours because we’re in Asia.

And the Taxi fade – a very clever idea that you pulled off nicely.

Far be it for a Greek to heap praise on a group of Turks, but I have to give credit where credit is due!

Cheers.

Ooh, my post was deleted before I could come back to put my opinion in it.

I would have to say that Episode was my absolute favourite so far. Well done guys and girls. Yours was very consistent in all aspects from the action setpieces to the acting.

At this stage you have my vote to make the final Episode. :)

Nice work Alican!

I think you've got the best fight scene so far, and I realli liked the ending where Lday X retrieves... Oops, nearly spoiled it for everyone else!

I'm in agreement with the others. Nice job. Your episode had an energy, especially in the second half, that really pulled me in.

I think if you cut it again, you should speed up the taxi transition. It's a bit too slow for a transition, IMO, and speeding it up will take the jerkiness of the handheld out. That transition is a great idea, though.

This was my favorite episode so far. No dialog, no subtitles, just good acting and a fast pace. Well done.

Yep no complaints. The taxi transition was really good and about right in length though a bit too long, like Keith said.

I think this is the best episode so far. I really enjoyed the hell out of it. So far, it's also the only one to do "no dialogue" really well.
