1- The interviews came much later than promised...
They proved to be cut to meaningless shreds by that soul-taking guy!!!
My friend Ali Murat managed to grab the dv's with the uncut interviews...
He said he will professionally edit them by this weekend and then hand them for translation.
2- WORST OF ALL...
The betas were finally processed with a fine machine but BOTH films proved to have horrific problems!
ASKA SUSAYANLAR somehow presented irrelevant external sounds and music, straight from hell!
OLULER had major "tracking" problems as if recordef off some crappy ancient vhs!!
Both betas were triple-checked in case it was the machine's fault but it is definitely their problem!
But how come, since the dvd-r's they had first sent me played WITHOUT these problems??????????
I asked Ali to go beg the companies and get some other Betas and double-check them first before sending them here.
But Ali is a mega-busy guy and he's not my errand boy to do things for me instantly.
So, all my fingers are crossed during the next days.
And of course, I said bye bye to a middle December release and hello to an early January one.
Finally, I'm also working on the Superman double-bill and since things are going smoother with it I will try to release both dvd's on the same date.
