Growing concern

Dear All In Volved,

In recent concern brought up by Dick and among the other production teams, I am writing this Memorandum to you and the other staff involved with the first production, that i have decided to make our meeting on the 31st Jan 2006 to be a discussion and rehearsal period.

Although it is a shame to waste such a perfect day where almost all the production teams can get together and shoot our principle photography, lets us not forget that we are here to learn and better ourselves to prove others that even with tight budget and limited timing, we can produce good entertainment in comparison with the big boys.

So let us not fret. With better organisation, proper planing and procedure with swift execution, we definatately will produce a film that we can proudly call our own.

It is known fact that i may have let this project run amok, so from now on, proper instructions shall be inforced.

Script Dept:
I have not seen your latest writing. WHERE IS IT?

Storyboard Dept:
Wake up your idea and start doing your work before i find a replacement. Pls do NOT test my patients. All i see is the impressive folder but with NOTHING in it. I better see the works this coming Tuesday.

Props Dept:
I would like to see the draft or at least ~something~ for me to look at regarding the manual book. Also i'm looking out for my low-pain basket ball prop. Do you want me to hit you with a REAL basketball instead?

Location Scout:
Have we finalised our locations? Can i see a report on this ASAP.

Costume Dept:
I need Pro-bully team singlet+shorts and a visual on the other team too. When can u advice me on the attires mentioned. Pls get Shaiful to liase with me.

Equipment Dept:
Pls prepare for me a trolley rig for the cameraman. And when in the world are you going to get the bloody batteries? Btw, did u get the mic from the Props Dept?
PS: Pls use your own money for the batt. Do keep the receipt to claim them at the Accounts Dept.

Transport Dept:
I know this is short notice but can we get a vehicle to transport the crew and equipments to the locations? Greatly appreciated. A van would be VERY much appreciated. I don't think a car will fit 9 crew PLUS equipments in...unless you're thinking of the boot and roof, then i would gladly show you this, -|-.

As mention before in Dick's Memo, I will be away to Cambodia, in preparation for my next film with the authorities at Angkor Wat from Friday (3rd Feb 06) to Tuesday(7th Feb 06) . Apparently Mrs Pitt isn't too happy with me scaring her kids around with my fake land mine props. So I will need the help of the Costume Dept to help my assistant to coordinate the next meet-up for principle shooting. I'm getting the Script Dept off the hook cos i want him to concentrate on the bloody script which was suppose to be ready ages ago. What you have to do is, get the availability of the actors during the shooting days so i could prepare and decide which scene is appropriate to shoot.

With that, i hope everyone is clear of thier responsibility and roles. Pls feel free to call me when u have any query. But that doesn't mean i'll pick it up.

Shall i set 10am 31st Jan 06 at the ~supposedly~ picked location of the basket ball court?
Will the Location Scout provide the exact location to meet up?

Thank you.
