You might be tempted to be discouraged by the weather forecast, and the prospect of a damp Shootout weekend. We however are not disheartened, and see it as a consideration that can only increase your creativity with the brief (which I’m assured will contain some indoor locations) and your ‘on your feet planning’ capability to dodge the showers and get the shots you need. We urge you to see it the same.

We have high expectations this year, and we are sure that a few soggy scripts will not affect the quality of films produced. See you at 5pm for the briefing!

Top Tip: Pack an umbrella.
