American television director Bobby Roth, whose work includes “Lost,” “Prison Break” and “Flash Forward,” is in the northwestern province of Bursa for a new web-film project, with some scenes set to be filmed in the city. Roth serves as the consultant director on the film.
At a press conference held at Çelik Palas Hotel, the director, accompanied by Turkish actress Seda Eğridere, said that TV series are watched through the Internet more in recent years, adding that films were replaced by TV series and that he chose projects which continued for three or four months.
Roth said that when making the TV series “Lost,” which quickly amassed a huge audience, they did not know what they were shooting.
“I don’t know why people loved this TV series that much. The questions like ‘are these people alive or death?’ ‘what kind of a world do they live in?’ dragged people to the story. People either loved this series too much or they never watched it. The story was very strong and we tried to do the best.,” he said.
The film, titled “Alina,” is directed by Vladamir Jedlicka and will be aired on the Internet in November later this year. The film will also meet filmgoers in movie theaters March of next year.
