What we need you to do is look them over and choose your favorite and provide some positive feedback on how it can be improved.Please be aware these designs are rough drafts of the final intention so from this we can then finalise our ultimate logo.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.CASTING/CREWING

Filming will take about 1 hour, we just need 3 close-ups for a dream sequence, the rest of the film has been shot and is being finished at the moment .
Boy must be white with dark brown or black hair and green eyes. Must be based in Brighton, this is a non-profit film so unfortunately we are only able to pay expenses, but you will get a copy of the film and invite to the premier.
For information about the film www.peepingtomproductions.com/dirt Filming will take place before 30th March so please reply as soon as possible. Parent or guardian must accompany him please.

email:d.j.fawcett@googlemail.com

-Andy nicholls is looking for a few male actors to play a doctor (preferably late 40s +) and a couple of male actors to play dads, one gay and one straight.
email:gomr007@btinternet.com

-Adam Claverly is looking for people to come film a live lounge style recording session at a local recording studio once or twice a month.
Do you think that any of your group member members might be interested in the following scenario and if so, would you be kind enough to share this information with them?
Whilst we cannot offer any payment for this at all, we hope that one or two of your members might see the promotion value of what we are doing, which they will be able to add to their portfolio and I expect will offer a really good benchmark on their CV & showreel.

Once or maybe twice a month we will go to a local, professional recording studio, where there will two bands or singer songwriters, that will be doing a live lounge style recording session.
We are looking to capture the session visually in moving image, something along the lines of what you see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkLQYJQkdJ0 and for the provide the visually recorded session back to us either in its raw format, or if possible, even into a fully edited piece, provided on a data CDR / DVD.

I am hoping that the team or director selected for the day, will turn up at the studio, armed with suffice equipment to film and capture the session visually and prepared with an draft storyboard for the shoot. The copyright of this recorded session remains with Mud Hut in perpetuity.
Mud Hut knows well how to promote good visual media and once provided with the footage, we will then go about broadcasting and promoting that session to the world using sites such as youTube. All footage will of course credit the filmmakers that take part comprehensively and where possible, links back to the filmmaker’s websites. The formula we are adopting here will lead to our videos being viewed well in excess of 1000 times a day at a base minimum.

I would like to get underway with this next month, we have a recent Kerrang cover band selected for the 1st one and I welcome your feedback on this scenario and what else might need to be considered.
Ideally I would like to know by early next week whether any of your members would be interested in progressing this and please ask them to email me directly if they are interested.
