One of my high school friends from back home, Efe Oztezdogan, apparently has won couple awards for his short film â€œAltyazÄ±â€, and it's been shown in various international film festivals. He emailed me about two weeks ago, out of the blue, and it was great to hear from him after so many years. I'm just happy that he's succeeding in his field, as moviemaking had always been his passion. I remember us getting our first video capture card, messing with adobe premiere and figuring things out :-) so cool.
Here's a Link to an article about him. It's in turkish ;-)
