One of the events of DOCUMENTARIST which is “Documentary Project Development Workshop” in cooperation with docİstanbul and MAFM (Mithat Alam Film Center) was held on the 27th of June 2010 at MAFM in University of Bosphorus. The participants discussed the 5 different projects that were presented by their directors.
Can Candan who is one of founders of docİstanbul was the chairman of the workshop with the moderators director Berke Baş, director Elif Ergezen and Nil Perçinler. I believe this workshop was very productive not only for the project owners but also for all participants. Here are the projects and directors:
“Bir Birikimin Hikâyesi Birikim Degisi Belgeseli” (Director: Özgür Yıldız). “Büyük Valide Han” (Director: Burak Sevingen), “Görünmeyen Emek” (Directors: Güliz Sağlam ve Feryal Saygılıgil) Paleyi (Director: Rodi Yüzbaşı) ve “Ölümsüz Mari’nin Kısa Hikâyesi” (Director: Özgür Yaşaroğlu)
As participants we gave suggestions about their projects’ aim, the path to follow, the editing methods would be preferred etc. and we asked questions as well. All the participants were keen to see developing periods, progress of the projects promised to each other for meeting the next workshop.
