Today is Feb 14th. C4 is exactly 99 days 3 hours 33 minutes and 30 seconds
away as I write this post. In order to have something to display I'm setting up these assignments and due dates. The diorama will be displayed in Frank's booth on a 9x6 table. The diorama will be 2/3rds city 1/3 country side. The LFL booth will be either not used or given to another group such as Kris's swstartours.net for their use. Frank could use it for overflow if need be.
The majority of the work needs to be completed and mailed to me by May 1st. I will store all dioramas, figures and ships. Please send them all to me. Please include in the package a check or cash for return postage. Any items submitted without return postage will not be returned. We will have additional rules about what documentation to include with the package (such as grid number) soon.
Since Chewie is our production leader and has very little time left to him to work on the project, his assignment is to oversee the entire production. He has complete control over all aspects on the project. If you have a question on how to proceed, he says final say.
Glassman needs to draw out a final version of the diorama gridded to a 9x6 table. Each building needs to be defined and named. Each item is also to be sectioned off and turned into a laundry list of projects. This gridded out picture and laundry list is due March 1st. Glassman needs to create a backdrop picture that will span the length of the table. This will give us a feeling of depth thru forced prespective. This should be completed by May 1st.
Chewie and Ryan need to post reminder 'ads' starting today on their respective web site front pages once a week to keep people aware of the project. Chewie and Ryan will split up the Glassman's grid among participants. Deadlines on all diorama projects is May 1st. Chewie and Ryan can make the deadline sooner at their own descression. Whatever they say goes and is not up to debate.
Darth Ennis needs to start a campain on getting as many figures and ships mailed to me as he can. He needs to start contacting people at as many different sites as possible for donations. He should have a number of thread projects going on in parallel. Some examples would be droids, natives, off worlders and imperials. All figures and ships must be completed and mailed to me by May 1st.
Pendragon will continue to work on the web site by putting together the picture gallery and documenting the project on the site with news. He should post Smartys newletters and other announcements.
Smarty needs to have a newsletter sent out each week (even if it is the same content in the newsletter) to as many customizers he can get email for. He needs to go to different customizing sites on the web and raise awareness of the project with lots of new theads. Basically I need him to be as annoying as possible to the star wars customzing hobby as possible in order to make sure that EVERYONE knows about this project and is sending in at least one thing. This has to be done all the way up the c4.
I think this pretty much covers things. I will monitor the project and watch the progress. If I feel that things are not progressing at an acceptable rate, I'll discuss with the leaders in private whether to shutdown project. I will post the final decision.
