“The pacing of the drama was really well handled. Creating a sense of sadness and regret. We felt the history of these people even without seeing them together. The difficulties of relationships and life in a foreign country. Really nice cinematography score and naturalistic performances.” – The Open Door Short Film Showcase Team.

“Orhan is a nicely acted ensemble piece, though it’s clearly centered around Günalp Koçak’s leading turn as a man whose slow-building tension is palpable and compelling […] Orhan is a dark film that carries an aura of melancholy in nearly every minute of its just over 14-minute running time. The film’s original music, courtesy of Thom Thomas-Watkins, is sparse yet effective while Michael Spry’s lensing is particularly effective in building the film’s atmosphere.” – The Independent Critic [Richard Propes]

“Ohan is a strong character piece that drives itself forward through effective writing and accomplished film making skills and techniques. The performances are admirable and provide excellent characterizations that hold the audiences attention.” – Largo Film Awards
