I could never imagine that an unfortunate accident I encountered in my childhood and the experience I had in the course of time could ever turn into a memory throughout years, which would cause me to make up a blissful game bearing a relationship with reality continuously at a fantasy level.
I would like to start with one of the most fantastic sentences which I do not even remember what its writer used it for, the source of which I could not access again despite a search of many years, and however I am quite sure it’s written by Bertrand Russell, which reminds me of the joy of my game with the reality every time I pronounce it despite thousand recites, and which has a major role in my discovery of the rational mind:
'The world, with all evidence proving its existence for millions of years, in fact, is built only twenty minutes ago.'Amongst the many scripts I had written in order to show the joy, experiences and ideas on my mind, I chose 'Nobody Comes, Nobody Goes...', a script that was pushing me for a while, to share with people and shoot it with my available budget at that moment. Then, something peculiar came in procession. The story that had turned into a reality from being in the state of fantasy when it was written, then started to struggle to pass into another level of fantastic reality from the dimension of fantasy it actually was in.
In the midst of that much reality (!) some actual things really were making their cases. What did I have first at hand?
Two buddies, who would invest some amount of money they had at hand just because they believed in my ideas; a production crew composed of my buddies investing in my film who never had a movie set experience before; time I could only make use of for a week or plus a day at most; and the probability to have to shoot a movie with a 70% coverage of night scenes in August when the nights relatively last significantly shorter...
These factors were not bad at all to take the first step.
When I first started to gather my creative and technical crew, interviewed with actors and actresses and realized how they were so excited and thrilled about the project, sometimes I could not prevent myself to stop and watch them in astonishment.
From now on, I had an enthusiastic crew composed of professionals mostly, actors and actresses yearning to start the scenes, and a director of photography I deeply relied on.
From the very first day until the afternoon that we made our last interior shooting in the house in Istanbul, I noticed that I had actually asked too much from everybody and I was aware every single moment that they strived to make their best with at least that much effort, belief, and enthusiasm. When I saw the film after the rough cut was concluded, I was so proud of my crew. When people amongst the crew watched the movie, a vast weight started to get off of my shoulders because they were still happy to have taken part in it. I wish the part of the crew, who haven’t seen the film yet, feel the same as they watch.
Now, I believe that 'Nobody Comes, Nobody Goes...' should find and go its own way as soon as possible. I am open to all kinds of rational and reasonable criticism.
I wish you also like 'Nobody Comes, Nobody Goes...' and hope that it generates a prepossessing effect in your minds.
