“Bring the projector and films” meeting.

The meeting for delivering projectors and films will take place on Thursday 18/11 at 20.00 in Star & Garter.
The projectors and films will be stored in my place for testing etc.

It would be very helpful if you could send us an email with information what you will be bringing to the meeting. Use address for sending this info.
Please make sure that the films and projectors are labelled.
The best way is to put the name of the owner + contact details on the sticker and stick it on. This way we should not get lost with all the equipment and films and can return them safely in the future.

Also if you can not make it to the meeting on that day, but you have projector or film, please send an email to the above address and we can organise it individually.
However, it would be much appreciated if all of you, who can make it on 18/11, delivered the things on that day. That would make things go really smoothly.
And as all of us are very busy with other things in our lives, it would make things simple as well.

Remember there is a deadline for delivery of films, as we need to have some time to go through them all and select the material for display. The deadline is 25/11.

Also, just to let you know, that our trip to visit flats and houses along the main street on Sunday, went really well. Almost surprisingly well. There were not many of us, but for all of those who came – a big thank you. It was quite a surprising experience in all, because most of the people who we asked for ‘lending’ us their windows for the time of the project, said yes. So we’ve got quite a sweet number of clusters.
We will have another ‘visiting’ session, because it would be good to have some more places.
We will keep you informed about it.

Anyway, that is all for now. Please check this blog regularly, because we wouldn’t like to spam your mailboxes too often.
All the info is on this blog.

See you all on Thursday.

Christmas Project - after the meeting on 01/11/05

Hallo everyone,

I am finally able to post this message. Sorry it took me a while, but I had to get used to dealing with the blogger, which in the end didn't appear to be difficult.

But here goes a quick summary of what we agreed during our first meeting on Tuesday, so we can keep ourselves organised, ‘cos there’s not much time left to The Christmas Project, which is happening on December 9th and 10th from 19.00 till 21.00.

+ Our next meeting is happening on Sunday November 6th at 14.00 in the Star & Garter.

+ Until then we are all hunting for projectors and holiday films. So if you have a friend, or friend of a friend or a neighbour who has one of the above and might be willing to make them (the film/s, or/and projector) available for the event, please talk to them about the project and ask them to get in touch with us; alternatively, we would be happy to get in touch with them.
As we discussed today it would be wise to mention that there is a possibility that some of the 8mm film might be destroyed during the event. If anyone has a film that is particularly precious, we would be able to transfer it to DV tape, which they would need to deliver to us.

Please bring to the Sunday meeting a list of projectors and/or films that you were able to gather by then. The list should have names and what is available to be lent and contact details.

+ During the Sunday meeting we will divide ourselves into small groups (no more than 2 or 3 people) and go off into the town, to talk to people living along the main streets.

I think that is all that we agreed. But please put any comments you’ve got by clicking the comment link underneath this message and typing your message in the message field which will appear on the new page.

I know there is not much time left before our meeting tomorrow in the Star, but I hope this might be helpful anyway.

See you tomorrow,
mtc (magda)
