Dear anyone who is willing to give me stuff for free,

Hi. How are you? How are the kids? Anyway, I was wondering if I could borrow your camcorder, tripod, editing equipment, computer and anything else that would make making a 15 second commercial easier. Why you ask? Wouldn’t you like to know? I guess that is why you asked isn’t? Never mind.
Well, I don’t want to make too big of a deal about it, but SCENE has a new contest called Directors Chair 2, and I sorta want to win it. The prize is $5000 cash and 52,000 Scene points (the same as 52 free movies at Cineplex.) All I have to do is make a short commercial saying why people should get a SCENE card. Easy right?
Since you are kind enough to lend/give me all your equipment, I feel like I should be honest with you and tell you that I’m probably not going to share the prize. That’s a lot of money and points and quite frankly, I just can’t see myself giving any of it up. Again, just being honest.
But while I’m not willing to share, I am willing to let you win one or two of the categories. There are five to choose from: Best SCENE Membership card spot, Best SCENE Scotiabank card spot, Best French Language SCENE Membership card spot, Best French Language SCENE Scotiabank card spot and Fan Favourite spot. And since I sound like Stephen Harper’s wife when I try to speak french, those categories are all yours. I think that’s pretty fair.
Anyway, the contest is open until November 30th, so I’m going to need that equipment really quickly. Also, if you could come up with the idea for my commercial, that would be awesome. Here is the link to the contest website, it should help get the creative juices flowing.
You’re the best,

Mike Morrison
