I received this response from Bryan Smith regarding the review of Eastern Horizons. I'm pleased and more than a little relieved. Oh, and if you look on the back of the DVD box you'll find this blog quoted there...
Great review Simon. I'm glad you enjoyed it and picked up on so many things that were quite intentional. We are getting better one step at a time.
I try to give fair and honest comment with the perspective of someone who makes the odd film or two. I've been in touch with Bryan for a while now and he has kindly agreed to advise me on some aspects of DVD making, although I try not to let this influence the review.
That said, I have a heck of a lot to learn from him!
