Filming : Reading 11 Feb '09
« on: 18, December, 2008 - 15:43:26 »
This is genuine ;

Dear Karl,

It was great to talk to you today - I will be in touch very shortly with more news.

As mentioned, we would be really keen to hire a C5 from you for filming (early Feb 2009). We are also keen to look into the possibility of doing some filming with your C5 group - would this be of interest? Are you planning to have a meeting in February?

We are going to be based in Reading - would a few of you would be interested in travelling to Reading for some filming with our Technology Team - this is still being thought through but I wanted to run it past you. The date would be mid-Feb.

My contact details are below - please feel free to drop me a line anytime.

With best wishes!

Tom


So , I'm looking for people to join me in Reading  ;D !

top man - you could always borrow "Dave" if needs be  :D.

we now have a date for this filming - Wednesday 11th Feb !

Being mid-week might cause a few snags for us as it means I've got to book the day off work, which I guess will also apply to most of us. But it should be worth it , coz how often do we get asked, as a group, to take part in something like this   8)

Full details of venue etc etc to follow...

A brief update on this project ;

It will be going ahead as planned on the 11th February '09, and will be in the Reading area.

At this stage, the organiser has asked for a bit of discretion and that full details are not published at this time. We can say that it will involve filming for a BBC4 technology series. Those that know some more of the details are asked not to post them just yet.

Further details about the location and filming content will posted next week.

So those that want to take part should book the day off work and clear their diary for the day  8)

p.s. next week I'll be asking for confirmation from those that want to attend so I can give the organiser some idea of numbers.

It's a crying shame you cant make it , but like you say there is always the chance a similar opportunity will come around again later.

That's excellent news mate , thanks for letting me know. If anyone else is able to confirm they will definately be attending it would be most appreciated  ;)

The date has been confirmed, and I have the location - which will be posted a little later. This is an extract from an email Tom (the organisor) ;

Dear Karl,

.... At the moment, there are slight tweaks to the filming schedule. We are still very keen to film with yourself and C5Alive .......but are just confirming the final details ......

With best wishes

Tom

The latest email , edited for now to as I promised to be discreet  ;

Dear Karl,

I am a colleague of Tom .......... and am overseeing the setting up of the filming on Weds 11th Feb.

In practice, we are hoping that the C5 drivers can meet somewhere in the Cavendish Heights area (postcode RG4).   This would enable us to set the scene up and get ready to film the cars going down the road to ..........

We have now started filming and are looking for an exact location for this liaison point.  We need to notify the council.

What would be useful for our planning is to know how many transportation vehicles C5 Alive will be coming with, and rough idea of their size - because we'll need to select a rendezvous point with suitable parking.

At a rough guess - what would be a likely number?  Can we put a limit on it or will this not be necessary.

We are likely to meet at 1000.   Would it be possible for C5 Alive to get to Reading that early?

With thanks and best wishes

Zara...................



It is all going ahead , and I've replied that 10am would be okay  and that I anticipate about 6-8 C5's taking part.

Could all those who want to participate in this please let me know now so that I can confirm the numbers with Zara.

Full location details etc will be released nearer the time.

List of those confirmed as attending;

Karl
Angie
Martin
