This last Tuesday (17th of July), we visited the Galata View for the video shooting! It’s one of the most wonderful apartments in Istanbul that has a magnificient view of the Marmara sea, Bosphorus and Golden Horn. I must admit the weather was extremely hot but we were lucky to open windows to get some fresh Bosphorus air in :)
I had a chance to try out the new tripod I had bought for the video cam, too. And yes, it works really good for me :). Funny but I felt like a pro during the shooting. Anyway, the apartment is quite a big one and I had to take several shots for each room. But when I was working with my video software today, I realized I could hardly crop out some parts and eventually the whole video was almost over 10 minutes! This has too many handicaps. First for viewers: A 3-5 minute video is considered to be more watchable. Then for background music: It’s almost impossible for me to find one 10-minute track for the background and I hate to put 2 different tracks and put over “fade-ins” and “fade-outs” to perform a mix. Just for the info; Background track in the first video is from Loreena McKennitt (Marco Polo) and in the second video is from Shantel (Inel Inel De Aur)
Long story short, I divided the video into two parts, each one introducing different rooms. Below are the youtube embeds for you to watch. Please also visit the apartment’s web pages to see its photos and other pages that might interest you.
Part I: Entrance, Living Room and Dining Room
Part II: Working Room, Bedroom, Kitchen and Bathroom
