Hmm, why is it that most movie web sites are so 'cutting-edge' and 'cool' that they're impossible to use and almost information-free? I would have thought that a few pages with information about movies, screenshots and video clips would be far more useful than fancy but unreadable graphics and web pages which are continually redrawing themselves. As it is, I spent a while poking around on your site, but I still don't have a clue what it's about.

Just out of curiosity, I had a look as well. The presentation style was enough to make me stop looking much further than the home page. The "noise" and constant updating of bits of it makes it incomprehensible to me.

Like my great-grandma said: "There are passengers for every train!".... Which reminds me of Mr. Nelix's alien, but multicultural balanced proverb: "When the road in front of you splits in two, take the third one!"

A response which, to be honest, I find about as informative as your site.

I'm not knocking your project, whatever it might be, I'm just surprised that you have obviously spent an awful lot of time creating your web site but don't seem in the least bit concerned that people find it unusable; you presumably created it for publicity purposes, so I would have imagined that you'd be interested in feedback from the kind of people you're trying to publicise it to.

Thank you for sharing your opinion with us. However, since 1997 (the year our site is online), you are to be the first negative response about our design and "informativity." Of course there always will be positive and negative reactions to any publication (in every gallery, concert or movie theater). But negative reactions never change the course of creativity one happily performs for the sake of art, not for the sake of his time and wide public (call it his lifetime observers).

I'm sure you understand that Art is a very private medium, and that even though addressed to the public -- usually as a desire to share something -- it does not grow or get motivated by public opinion, unless it is a "consummative art" (a sellable product). The origin of a true artwork, however, is not the public, but an artist's love to Art itself. Therefore, on such an uncommon ground usually grow differences and often enmities. Otherwise, there'll be no variety in Art, i.e., no Jazz variations (naturally unappreciated by Classic or Rock music lovers). And tere'll be no impressionists or cubists (ever hated by those, who consider themselves "more serious" artists).

Excuse me, but this discussion is as endless as the boundaries of time, matter, space and art. An old Russian proverb lauds: "Salt and sugar ever fight about the matters of taste, but always try remain friends on the table of their master." I bet it also means that the world would be very boring if we all were equal and if everything tasted according to someone else's tongue.

Cordially trying to live with your opinion and understand your point of view as well--

Yours,

I think you've missed the point slightly. We're not commenting on art, you can do as you wish with that. We're commenting on the ability of the website to communicate to us, and that's it's prime (possibly sole) function. If we can't work out what you're trying to say to us, then it isn't succeeding.

Get my test cards document, and cards for 625, 525, 720 and 1080. Thanks to Gavin Gration for hosting them.
Camera settings documents are held by Daniel Browning and at the EBU
My book, 'Circles of Confusion' is available here.
Also EBU Tech.3335 tells how to test cameras, and R.118 tells how to use the results.

Come off it Borislav!
With all your links and banners your milking it for every penny (or dime)and trying to pass it off as art. You've even got Adobe in there you cheeky bugger!
This is England not America. We do not swallow the c*** as the yanks say.

Dear sir/madam, is there a personal communication problem we are discussing here, or...?

As we said, for the last 3 years we did not receive even ONE (!) complaint about the language and/or content understandability of our site. In contrary, we've won web wards for our web performance. The author has won Who’s Who in America 2000 award for best literary achievement for the New Millennium. Besides, we also won thousands of fans from all over the world.

Trying to excuse your approach, we simply guessed that you don't like the way our information is presented, which we assumed touches the issues of Art and web design, not language skills and Internet communication talents (capabilities).

What exactly don't you understand from our web content?

The very first page (index.html) shows it all right away:

SOON FILMS
presents
a Borislav Belovarski film
T I M E S H I P
an ultimate time travel saga for all ages…
etc.

It leads to our first page, named "films.html" -- there we show the main characters in a strange top secret DNA file, which hints that there’s some conspiracy going on around these characters. Right there we give all the names of the seasons in development by the names of the books, which they will be based on.

On the next pages (respectively film1.html, film2, film3, film4, etc.) we see every season with its episode titles, presented with short synopsis and pictures and names of the main characters. Right there you also have a link to the novels this particular season is based on (all in development). They lead to the author’s site, which once was http://timeship.org -- before we bought his time travel ideas for animation production.

If you have found certain grammar mistakes, misspellings, dead links, etc., please, be so kind to report them in detail with links to the page you discuss. If you have critiques to one of our synopses, the author’s books, or perhaps the subject of time travel itself -- you're welcome to share them with us or with this online board. But sir/madam, there's no point in criticizing and shooting in the wind, as if we don't have anything else to do.

With respect,

SOON FILMS http://timeship.tv

Speaking personally, I didn't get far enough into it to decide whether the grammar/spelling etc was good or not. The fact that it kept changing while I tried to read it, was in tiny print and covered in "noise" made me decide not to persue it further. Life's too short to have to work at reading a website to see what it's about. Either it tells me simply, or I ignore it. I ignored it.

Your first post should have read;
