    (3) shoot it with the art director
    (4) get a d.i artist to d.i it
    (5) print it and send for awards

    That's in a nutshell. But a pretty big and hard nut to crack.
    Art director... can be arranged. i know of a few fashion designers from CK and some brands. obviously ck and few other well known brands have local designers la. hahahaa..

    Models / talents no issue for sure.

    location props can be arranged if given enough support.

    DI artist. i have 1 on hand. senior graphic designer + di.

    print... lol... big boss here can handle it......

    send for awards ?? maybe i will rather hold a mini exhibition if we have alot of nice prints.

    i have noted the points. and will be discussing this with a few fashion designers and see how.

    I just knew it'll be fun. I'm impressed what can be done when pulling resources together.
    But it'll be so big that you'll need a strong will to see it thru.
    Too many cooks may just spoil the food.

    Winson, agree with you on the point of too many cooks.

    Glennyong, looks like you've got some groundwork done already. Since you're the threadstarter, it'll then be your discretion as to the scope of what you plan to do and who you wish to work with.

    On awards, i'm talking about the local Creative Circle Awards, Ink Awards, etcetc. Or maybe even D&AD and One Show and many others. They always have a photography section. If we're serious and aim to do great work, from conceptualisation to finished product, who knows? If you try and not win anything, at least you tried and know. If you don't try, you've already won nothing.

    But ok, i concede it's rather ambitious, but one can always dream. And aspire by getting it done. Aim higher... if fall short, still got something great to exhibit.

    Die die must try, just for the challenge and fun.

    A & P Coordinator had won numerous print awards over the years, including “The Best of Both World” this April held in Bangkok. Organised by HP, it recognized the best use of digital imaging and printing excellence in Asia.

    With 1/3 of the battle assured, the rest are on creativity and shooting skill.

    from yesterday's discussions, its more or less workable. with regarding with the quality of works, i will have no say because i will be organising, and whether i will be shooting also one big question mark.

    from yesterday's discussion, amoung 3 of them. 2 had pale faces after hearing the points and etc etc.

    i am trying to see how this planning can go about also.

    and of course. today i am operating with 40% capacity... my brain going into screensaver mode soon...

    Pale faces are a definite i guess. As well as high blood pressure.

    But i think it's like that if you want to do things on a commercial scale or level, even if it's only for personal challenge and a portfolio / exhibition.

    So it needs willpower and courage, and surely some experience. It's not going to be as easy as the usual TFCD kind of shoots that one can usually find in the Portraits/Poses section.

    To answer your qns, glenn:

    Interested?: Yes definitely. To start building a solid commercial portfolio.

    Dare to pay?: Can't say now. You'll need to propose based on the scope you have in mind.

    PM me to discuss in detail?
