    Orkide Hn., merhaba.
    İz tv’de “sahildekileler” adlı kısa filinizi izledim.
    ben eski “Caddebostanlı” olup, halen burada eski ve babamdan kalmış evde oturmaktayım.
    Çekmiş olduğunuz tüm sahnelerde bizzat yaşamış ve dün gibi hatırlıyorum. Filiminiz harika (çekim olarak) hatıralar hala pek taze, ve bu filminizde bir kopya else etmek isterim. (gerekirse ücret karşılığında)
    Ancak bende film ve fotoğraf düşkünü olduğumdan, tanışmakta benim için şeref olucaktır. Saygılarımla
