The editing procedure has finished and finally “8’den 8’e SAHİLDEKİLER” / “COASTLANDERS 8 to 8” is ready. I would like to thank to my friends Tamer Gültekin and Umut Can Sevindik for editing procedure. They did their best despite of their busy schedules.
I am so happy with the music of my short docu and I am thankful to my extra ordinary talented friend Umur Türel for his wonderful, emotional song “Crying Out”. Before, I was thinking about the use some part of piano sonatas but I‘ve changed my mind. While we were talking about the music of the documentary he offered me to use his own music and he lighted a bulb in my mind. I listened and re listened all night long this song with slight tears in my eyes and called him immediately to say my decision!
Another person whom I’d like to thank for his help and let me used for his old photography archieve about Maltepe Coastline is jurnalist & painter Mr. Aykut Ünker. MAKSEV and also Maltepe Association Board Member Mr. Zeki Hırçın is very helpful and kind too. In fact I have to thank the other Maltepe residents whom I interviewed and all the people around me who supported me especially my family and close friends.
