The pre-production and production procedures of “Coastlanders 8 to 8” (8’den 8’e Sahildekiler) have finished. And we are in post production procedure. This short documentary movie can be considered a part of and also a pre-production shooting of the main documentary project about Maltepe area in the future.
We observed a summer day at Maltepe Coastline in Istanbul and interviewed couple of local people who know the old times of the area.
Due to walking and working under the hot summer sun all day long we got sunburnt very much:-) Local people were helpful for us and especially old people were very pleased to hearing about short documentary. We did shooting on the boat and extra sunset shooting in other day.
As I known before and also as I heard from the Maltepe people my short movie will be the first documentary about Maltepe Coastline.
I like this place and I’m living here for many years. I also remember the old times we spent there with swimming etc. And I’ve been still spending some part of my daily time as walking and making fitness there towards to Princes’ Islands view.
Thanx to Burçin Ankara and Murat Vanlı who worked with me and did their best during the production procedure. Now I’m exited for the editing:-)
