  1. Hi Kemal

    Had to shoot off for babysitter last night, but just wanted to say how impressed I was with your work. I enjoyed the production, there was some great mobile cinematography with excellent framing and difficult shooting in low light, the performances were strong, which showed how comfortable the cast were to be directed by you.

    I agree that you should try to extend the idea to a feature length. At the moment the narrative is a series of events that an audience might be familiar with and the extra time will give you the time to develop your characters and inject the action with something unique and give the characters the depth they need. It will only be when you get financial support that you can develop production values and audio mix, but at the moment the technical quality is very good indeed.
    I can honestly say that some of the sequences were amongst the most gritty and down to earth I have seen and it takes a lot of bravery to represent issues and stories that don’t sit comfortably with a lot of people, or at least the cosy themes that most mass audiences want. The whole text and event showed a lot of heart and it looks like you have established a strong team around you.

    Like I said, I hope you can show some of your shorts at Film Lab and it would be great to get your other work screened to a wider audience, so I hope to see you soon. Congratulations on a job well done and a very successful evening.
