    I don't use Facebook so apart from personal recommendations this is my only outlet for filling odd jobs : )

    Found a Mocha specialist to sort the flags, found a studio in Corby, found a storyboard artist - so all good!

    Might need a props stylist for next week and potentially costume/wardrobe so feel free to drop names here.

    Any after effects / compositing freelancers here? I have a 4 second exterior of a building and the flags are blowing the wrong way... the flags only have text on the wrong side (brilliant design) so the text appears backwards. options: either mask text out entirely and just have coloured flags, or somehow mask and then put text on top but seems trickier as there is some ripple in the flag. could also do with a bluer sky etc.

    I could blunder my way through it in a day or so but suspect someone knowledgeable could sort it in a few hours or am I talking out of my producer?

    Found a studio.

    Any set builders/designers here? Trying to cost something. Need to build 4 (down from 6) 'rooms'.

    The rooms are going to be just two walls, shooting into a corner sort of thing. Wall height 3m. Wall width 3m and 4m. So 4 x walls that are 4m wide 3m tall, and 4 x walls that are 3m wide and 3m tall. These all need to be painted. Each room is a different colour.

    At the moment I'm speaking to a supplier who uses Aluvision and can print onto seamless non gloss fabric at £50 per square meter. That's about £4200. He hasn't stated whether this cost includes install or the actual Aluvision frames or is just the printing. In the meantime I'm just trying to see if I could hire a scenic artist to come and knock up some flats from timber, ply and scenic canvas, then paint them. And whether I could get those 4 x rooms done for less than £4200.

    Re. my last post I discovered CineWest (who appear to basically be a spin off from Video Europe) and they're gems.

    In other news, anyone know any large studio spaces outside of London? I've tried the bottle yard and Band in Bristol. Would consider Brighton way. Reading / Southampton but don't really want to go north and am assuming London (even Heathrow) prices will be prohibitive. Need to find someone large enough to stage and shoot six room scenes simultaneously as there's a move through all of them.

    ^ highly likely this unless you know there's other physical damage. Use a sim removal tool or a thick needle and very carefully dig in around the edges being sure not to scrape the connection in the centre. Loads will come out. It's very tough and compacted and you might not initially think there's anything in there but persist.

    Yep, ordered one. I did have one on order when I built my last PC but couldn't get stock and didn't really need it for that. Just got the electronics basic set this time. I tried the laptop last night and didn't really get it hot enough for the fan to come on though I could hear it tickling around in there at low speed after an hour of Netflix. I think tbh it'll probably be fine for Monday and I'd rather tinker when I get back instead of risk killing it before the shoot.

    Never keep anything on it. It's purely a bash around thing for copying footage from cards to drives on shoots or if it's at home it's for when my son comes in at stupid o clock and I can't face waking up yet so I just whack some Duggee on. That said it'd still be a pain if it before a shoot on Monday.
