We are surrounded by great volumes of visual images at this Media era. However,
truly interesting visual images that we really need to see are not really presented
Researchers and educationists have been deeply concerned
with the quality of TV documentaries that lack credibility and broad perspective
with little regard for cultural contexts.
Professionals in the TV documentary industry have been long
frustrated by the self-regulation by the Television stations and also their
playing up to viewers and sponsors .
Thus, we have decided to start a new project "Sea, Forests
and People: Visual Documentary Series Bahari" to produce documentaries
with our own concepts and choices. In this "Bahari Project", researchers
and media professionals that share the same objective collaborate and inspire
one another to produce new pieces. We intend to continue this project over a longer span of time, reflecting experiences and new ideas we will gain through the project.
We believe that the dream of the media professionals which
is to become free from the media giant-led production can come true. New innovation
of technology for shooting and editing equipments has made many of us easier
to do our own independent projects and that made us possible to start our
independent label "Bahari".
