    For Signage, I have already got a sponsor for an A1 size print.
    Artwork leave that to me.

    After printing we will need somewhere to stick it on.
    We will still need to mount the print and laminate it as well.
    Does anyone have an easel?

    Tentage will be too costly, any sponsors?

    i got a wooden easel ... if we can get legal permits it'll be easier for us to get help from shopping centres to give us shelter and even power source i believe, i got a few friends can help carry stuff and do PR on the ground ... hope this can materialise!

    here's 2 plans to consider

    Wai has suggested shooting on 14 Jan to 16 Jan, if so we have to get these done:

    8 Jan morning meeting to settle all logistics ... may have to tie up with PNPC meeting (which is in the afternoon)

    9 Jan miscellaneous preparations

    10 - 13 Jan get help from printing companies and get permission from various locations and doing publicity

    14 Jan to 16 Jan - shoot

    this is a very rush plan IMHO

    we can also do something like this:

    upon getting permit,

    1st week - contact all relevant sponsors and location owners

    1st weekend - meeting for types of equipment we have gathered, decide on locations, tasking etc.

    2nd week - publicity and miscellaneous preparations

    2nd weekend - shoot

    the aim is to do this before Chinese New Year comes.

    we can consider Chinatown as a good location as well to do the shoot with festive decorations coming up.

    I think we should get in touch with the sponsers now in order to give them a "heads up" and also to gauge their respond.
    As for location owner, they may need to clear with their management first and that can take as much as 3 to 4 weeks.
    If we can work with an org. we may be able to get things done faster: ie if we want to do it in Chinatown, than we can approch the central CDC, Chinatown Merchant Assoc. etc..... we can use their names to apply for permit as well as to tap their network for sponsers. Sad to say, as it is now we may be view as just a group of ind. without any backing.

    Default The plan

    Things to decide

    Location: Esplanade / Merlion / Chinatown

    Size of Photo Print : 4R and/or A4

    Price of Photo Print : 4R - $10 A4 - $20 (is this too expansive?)
    plus donation box (get from red cross)

    What we will need:

    Notebook with Photoshop or other image editing software.
    Portable Printer / Paper / Ink
    Camera
    Reflector
    Light meter
    Red Cross Donation box
    Easel / Poster

    And most important manpower

    We can do plan shifts.
    information Flyers

    We also need a escape plan in case of rain.

    Publicity: mediacorp radio / tv / newspaper / online

    Lets try to keep things simple, otherwise it will get too big to handle.

    some preliminary information about help from Epson, they can sponsor anything produced by their company, we need to draft a proposal and send in 2 weeks in advance, will be getting the relevant contacts. Thanks to Kay Chin for the link

    anyone wants to help contact central CDC and Chinatown Merchant Assoc. and see if they can help?

    It puzzled me here, why all this trouble and hassle?

    If you wanna help, just donate money.

    I can provide camera (with tripod) and manpower.
    But I cant help much for the prep as I cant leave school during office hours.

    May I know what's the planned duration of the shoot? Only for 1 weekend? or are we going to do it for, let's say, over 4 weekends?

    1. 10 photogs donating $100 each raise only $1000, if each photo taken is at least $5 and each and photog takes at least 20 a day, we'll have at least equalled that amount. in donation drives, there will be people paying more than the 'sale price' of each photo taken.

    2. i for one cannot donate $100 straight from my pocket btw, but i can use email, internet, my equipment to help raise funds

    3. we have at least 50% of the equipment needed

    4. it's a chance for everyone to organise and learn from such charity drive, the experience will equip participants with knowledge of how to do one in future, be it for charity or commercial purposes.

    we will only do this on weekend, depending on amount of resources we have (that includes time) the plan now is one weekend, we don't want this to eat up too much of everyone's time also. you can copy the list of equipment and update it to post, thanks!!

    Just by giving money is so unpersonal,

    Use your own sweat and blood and you will gain satisfaction.
    Not forgetting meeting like minded people.
    Having fun along the way.
    Expanding your horizons
    making new friends
    exercise
    you will be able to shoot the merlion with your eyes closed
    you will know the merlion's best side.
    maybe the merlion will give you 4 numbers.

    I think our first piority is to get permit from authority, permission to use the location (may be more than 1?) to setup the booth, and to get sponsor for consumable like paper and ink.

    Other equipment like camera, computers, I believe we can come out with more than we need (who here dont have camera and computer?), IMO, tripod is not necessary, unless we can get sponsor for studio light, then we can setup a booth for posed shot (with models?) or passport photo on top of using the street as background (more choice for the donors)

    Once all these are confirmed, then we can start to advertise about this charity drive thru mass media (I can help in some ways) and probably print posters if someone can come out with the design.

    there are more interesting ideas that i have tot of, but probably I will raise it again when the time come
