Hi Alkim
Not often a film is so catching that I forget to look for errors. And I don't want to look it over again to try to find some. That would not be fair. Very good footage, story and a good voice. If I had to put my finger on something, I would like some more comments in the beginning of the film. I thought I was a little "one sentence at a time". But it picked up very well. And a little more of the natural sound. But that is just me.
Be proud of this.
Great video, thanks for shearing.

hı arnt,

thanks a lot for your positive comments. you are right about commenting. the main logic for acquiring comments- negatıves and positives - is sharing our knowledge and experiences here.

during the script writing stage, I have a very limited time, as you stated, I also want to add or change some text but this is my first 30 min doc, and this is a long journey, a alot of things to learn, and I like this journey itself, not the results I get...

thanks again,
alkim.

arnt,

unhortunately, during the shot on location, I m usually alone, so ı couldn't record too much sound. I know this film needs much more sound :(

thanks,

Alkim,

Having read several of your previous posts on this project, your hard work has certainly paid off. One of the most enjoyable half hours I had for sometime. I have no wish to comment on small aspects of the film as overall this is a brilliant piece of work and should be view as a whole, I think,like me, most viewers will be captivated. I certainly now know about a part of the world that I did not know existed.

I wish you all the success you deserve, you must enter it in one of the many wildlife film festivals that are held around the world.

Regard

Mick

Hi Alkim,

Lovely film, I really enjoyed watching it - thanks for posting the link. It probably could do with a little more sound but I wouldn't over do it. The music works really well with the beautiful imagery and it gave the whole thing a sense of atmosphere. It was also nice to see the local people and their cultural ways.

Congratulations and well done.

All the best
Pete

hi Pete,

thanks for your positive comments, sound is my weak side, and I need a good sound man in the field next time,

Hi Alkim,
I have some friends who are leaving for Turkey next week. They told me how beautiful the country is, and I see that they are right. Gorgeous scenery captured to perfection. I especially like the way you take a very small moving subject and use it to animate the whole landscape. This was especially evident with the train. My favorite shot, although not nature was the woman in the window down in the corner with the rest black. Classic and superb.
One small comment. A couple of scenes were stills and just a bit jarring in their lack of movement (like the eagle with the fox). Panning across them would have been nice. Also the men with the scythes was a little too long. I kept saying "When are they going to get those flowers". The could have done it sooner for greater effect.
Thank you for this wonderful film. There is a lot to learn from it.

Thank you Alkim.
A journey discovering life under and over snow and ice linked by snowmelt to spring and summer of waterfowl, harriers, black kites, cranes, a frenzied phalarope (I think), a magnificent black stork and 4-footed life in a wild setting of seasonal waterfalls and grasslands.

A welcome insight for me. 2 superb shrubs, daphne glomerata and azalea luteum grow together near this area which I'd love to visit. The winter/spring weather charts show it as permanently below freezing but your film shows that sunshine at that latitude is quite hot in springtime forcing rapid change of seasons. Very interesting.
