Turkish star Turan could face more than 12 years jail for brawl

first_imgSahin, who goes on stage by his first name Berkay, was also charged, with prosecutors demanding up to two years in jail.Turan, 31, had last week been summoned to an Istanbul police station to give a statement about the incident but was allowed to walk free.The incident, which took place outside an Istanbul nightclub and reportedly left Sahin with a broken nose, has transfixed Turkey over the last days.In a bizarre sequence of events, Turan then reportedly went to the hospital where the singer was being treated clutching a gun and begging to be shot and forgiven.The attacking midfielder, who won 100 caps for the national side, has for years been Turkey’s best known footballer and is a strong supporter of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.He backed Erdogan strongly after the failed July 2016 coup, appearing at rallies outside his home, and the Turkish president even came as a witness to Turan’s marriage.Turan is notorious for poor behaviour both on and off the field.He was banned for a record 16 games by the Turkish football authorities in May after he shoved and verbally abused a referee in a game for Basaksehir.Turan joined Basaksehir last season on loan from Barcelona, where he had largely endured an unhappy spell on the bench after joining from Atletico Madrid.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Arda Turan was the centre of attention when he returned to Turkey in January to play for Basaksehir © AFP/File / OZAN KOSEISTANBUL, Turkey, Oct 15 – Turkish prosecutors on Monday charged Barcelona player Arda Turan over a brawl with a prominent singer, asking for the footballer to be sentenced to twelve-and-a-half years in jail.The prosecutors charged Turan, who is currently on loan to Istanbul’s Basaksehir, with sexual harassment, unlicensed possession of weapons and causing intentional injury over the fight with singer Berkay Sahin, the state-run Anadolu news agency said.last_img read more

Half-time: Hull City 1 QPR 1

first_imgCharlie Austin’s goal – his sixth of the season – put QPR ahead at the KC Stadium before Michael Dawson equalised.Austin met Tjaronn Chery’s 25th-minute corner with a glancing header which crossed the line before Andrew Robertson could clear.But the Tigers hit back when Dawson headed home Tom Huddlestone’s left-wing free-kick eight minutes before the break.Hull had been lively early on, with Sone Aluko bringing a good save from Rob Green before just failing to connect with Robertson’s dangerous cross.But Chery has been a consistent threat to the Tigers defence and had a long-range effort saved before delivering the corner which led to the opening goal.Chery then sent another long-range shot wide and Rangers seemed to be growing in confidence before Hull levelled.Green, available again after serving a one-match ban, was restored to the side along with Alejandro Faurlin. It meant Alex Smithies and Daniel Tozser dropped to the bench.QPR: Green; Perch, Onuoha, Angella, Konchesky; Henry, Faurlin; Phillips, Luongo, Chery; Austin.Subs: Smithies, Hall, Gladwin, Doughty, Mackie, Emmanuel-Thomas, Tozser.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

$10K vs. $100K vs. $500K: Feature Film Budgets Compared

first_imgThat’s the breakdown for these different feature film budgets. I hope you’ll be making one in the very near future.Cover image via Janelle Lugge.Looking for more on the film and video industry? Check out these articles.The History and Power of Sound Design in the Film IndustryFilmmaking Fads and Trends: Don’t Let Them Bother YouThese Tribeca Docs Will Renew Your Faith In The Power of The CameraThe Cameras and Lenses Behind the Marvel Cinematic UniverseBreakout Director Kat Candler on the Best Festivals for First-Time Filmmakers Making a Film on a $10,000 BudgetSo let’s start with $10K. I’m going to say $10K, but it’s really anywhere between $10-$25K. This is as much as most people have in savings or could put on a credit card (I don’t recommend the latter).It’s probably not going to be a SAG (Screen Actors Guild) project, so your actors will be non-union. Your film is certainly not going to be union for other departments, including cinematography, electrical, sound, grip, catering, etc. — these will all be way over your budget.You’re probably not going to pay anyone very much money, maybe around $50 a day. You’re going to shoot in under two weeks, and most of your money is going toward one main location and feeding everyone.You’ll have to choose a script that’s very contained (that only takes place in a couple of locations), and you’re going to have to know a lot of other filmmakers.At $10K, you won’t be able to afford to pay $700-1,500 a day for a professional sound person.You’re going to be working on your own script, or a script that someone has given to you (because you can’t afford to buy one).You’re going to be getting locations of friends, family, yourself, or shooting outside in a park or on the street, if your city allows you to shoot publicly without a permit.Generally, you’re going to have to cut every corner you can and only use your budget to bail you out of an emergency.So the money will go toward whatever your network can’t supply.Hiring a camera or lenses (but probably not both).Lights and grip (some you’ll probably borrow or get for free — either the DP or gaffer will have them).Post-production. If you’re not a colorist or sound editor or mixer or musician, you’re going to have to pay one of those people (but hopefully not all).You can make a movie for zero dollars; it just means that you’re going to be asking for favors from everyone, all the time, which can take longer than if you just worked to save up the money and paid for whatever you couldn’t get as a favor.The budget of a $10K movie isn’t that complicated because (basically) you set out to get everything for free, and then when something falls through, or when you just can’t find it no matter how hard you look, you have to dip into your limited resources.A lot of people do this every year. Some of them break out and find wider acceptance. It’s basically a film school. You get to spend a month preparing, a week shooting, and then 3-6 months in post. After that, you try to find an audience for your film.It’s a great training ground for filmmakers of all kinds.Making a Film on a $100,000 BudgetImage via 9387388673.At $100K, you have some money, but you don’t have enough money to pay full price for everything.You’re probably going to move up to SAG actors because you want a couple of recognizable faces (or names) in your film. These are people at the end or beginning of their careers — actors transitioning from TV or Broadway into movies.At this budget level, you’re going to pay everyone something.You’re going to shoot for 18 days or three weeks, taking Sunday off.You’re going to be able to hire camera, lenses, and a grip, but not at full rate.You’re going to have to find people who believe in the vision of the film in order to make it.You’re still going to be directing the movie yourself because you still can’t pay the $100K it costs to get someone from the DGA (Director’s Guild of America).Hopefully, you’ve made a $10K movie already, and you know the process. You’re aware of your blind spots from the first film, so you’re going into the second film with your eyes more open.You can probably afford a professional colorist, professional sound mix, and professional musicians — all at a reduced price. You can afford to pay $2K for a mix, not $20K, and generally you still need to beg, borrow, and steal everything. By the time you write the script, cast it, find all the locations, shoot it, post-produce it, and find a buyer for the film, a year will have gone by. $100K is real money. People expect a return. You need to sell that movie and get that money back, which can take a lot of time. That’s time that you’re not working at a regular job.$100k will allow you to give yourself a small wage, but you’re probably still going to need to work part-time in order to avoid dipping into the budget to support yourself while you make the film.Making a Film on a $500,000 BudgetImage via 9387388673.This really could be anywhere from $500K to $1 million. This is the first time you’re paying union rates for your sound mixers, transportation, union members, AC (Assistant Camera), post, etc. You simply find the people you want to work with and ask them what their rate is. You’re not going to pay them their TV commercial rate of $8K a day; you’ll pay their feature rate of maybe $800 dollars a day.You’re going to pay for a casting director who will handle all the SAG elements for you.You’ll probably give yourself a wage of about $50K, depending on your living expenses, and you’re probably going to have a producer (as well) at the same price, which needs to cover your costs so you can work on your film and sell it. Remember, it takes 18 months to get a feature film from inception to sale.Having said that, there is very little money in a $500K budget for any of the things that you see in major Hollywood movies.There’s very little money for visual effects.You can’t fix things in post.You’re probably going to get one “name actor” at Schedule F, which is $60-$70K. Everyone else is going to be a bit player or a favor.You’re certainly not going to get Brad Pitt or Charlize Theron. You’re just going to try and find a rising star who really wants to be in your film.You’re still going to have to work with the new, hungry post-production houses. You’re not going to walk into Industrial Light & Magic and say, “I want a CGI character.”You’re going to really have to keep it very bare bones, but at $500K-$1 million, you’re going to at least be able to pay for most of what you need.center_img These budget breakdowns demonstrate the wild difference money makes when shooting a feature film. Here’s what you can expect.$10K, $100K, and $500K — they all sound like a lot of money. And they are. But they are also not as much as you might think when it comes to producing a feature film — especially a feature that will be compared to projects with budgets of millions (or hundreds of millions) of dollars.Here’s what you can expect from these three sample budgets.last_img read more

No Bahrain GP this season, Indian leg likely in Oct

first_imgThe inaugural Indian GP could be held on October 30 as scheduled earlier after Bahrain Grand Prix organisers on Friday withdrew from the current F1 season, exactly a week after the race was re-instated by the Formula One governing body.Bahrain GP was originally a season-opening race but was postponed due to civil unrest in the country.International Automobile Federation’s (FIA) World Motor Sport Council had reinstated the race on June 3 after having a fresh look at the prevailing situation in the country but many drivers and teams had shown apprehensions in going to the troubled nation.Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone was asked to re-examine the decision.FIA had pushed the Indian race to December to accommodate the Bahrain GP but now it seems that the Indian GP could now be held as scheduled.The Bahrain GP organisers, however, promised to return next season.”Whilst Bahrain would have been delighted to see the Grand Prix progress on October 30th in-line with the World Motor Sport Council’s decision, it has been made clear that this fixture cannot progress and we fully respect that decision,” Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) chairman Zayed R Alzayani said in a statement.”Bahrain has absolutely no desire to see a race which would further extend the calendar season and detract from the enjoyment of F1 for either drivers, teams or supporters. We want our role in Formula One to continue to be as positive and constructive as it has always been, therefore, in the best interest of the sport, we will not pursue the rescheduling of a race this season,” the statement read.advertisementAlzayani said they are looking forward to host the race in the 2012 season.”We look forward to welcoming teams, their drivers and supporters back to Bahrain next year and would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our supporters, including staff, volunteers, sponsors, private businesses and the general public, for whom I know this year’s decision will be a disappointment.”- With inputs from PTIlast_img read more

Russian star Golovin in talks with Chelsea

first_imgAleksandr Golovin’s mother confirmed that the 22-year-old player is, in fact, in talks with Chelsea, but a potential move can only be completed after the World Cup.This summer’s tournament revealed Aleksandr Golovin to the world and sparked the interest of the Blues. The offensive midfielder plays for the CSKA Moscow, but could be moving to London tight after the end of World Cup.As Goal reported, Golovin’s mother confirmed the rumors of the club’s interest: “Yes, now there are talks between the clubs, but we still do not know the details.”Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Sacha right now stands only for the Russian team, fully focused on the World Cup. The transition from one club to another will only be discussed after it is completed here.”Juventus is also one potential candidate for signing the Russian star. But Chelsea could top the other clubs’ bids, offering €30 million to CSKA Moscow.last_img read more

Federal employees set up 1000 GoFundMe pages amid government shutdown

first_imgThe government shut down since December 2018.  Pool Federal workers have begun asking for help on GoFundMe as a government shutdown nears the three-week mark.Government employees have set up roughly 1,000 fundraising pages as they seek help in meeting their expenses, said a GoFundMe spokeswoman in an email statement. Campaigns on the crowdfunding platform seek anywhere from a few hundred to thousands of dollars for everyday expenses, such as utilities and groceries.”We deploy proprietary technical tools and have multiple processes in place to verify the identity of campaign organizers and the beneficiary of the campaign,” said the spokeswoman. “Before money is transferred, an individual’s information, including their banking information, must be verified by our payment processor.”A search on the site for the term “government shutdown” returned more than 1,650 results. The campaigns have raised approximately $150,000 in total, according to the platform’s spokeswoman.”It’s affecting over hundreds of thousands of federal employees across the US in different federal agencies,” Brandon Taijeron, a Department of Justice employee whose story was included in The Guardian article, wrote on his GoFundMe page. “I’m on my last leg as far as finances being taken care of, putting food on the table, making sure my wife and son have everything they need, getting to and from work even though we’re not getting paid right now.”The government shutdown started in December because the House and Senate couldn’t come to agreement on funding President Donald Trump’s $5 billion border wall, according to CBS News. Over 420,000 government staff are reportedly working without pay.First published on Jan. 10, 5:50 p.m. PT.Updates on Jan. 11, 7:20 a.m. PT: Adds GoFundMe spokeswoman statement.  Politics Digital Media Internet Services 30 Commentscenter_img Share your voice Tagslast_img read more
