Interesting proposal.

I was contacted by E mail late last week by a Burbank based company, who had seen my Jeep on the internet. They want to use some photos of my jeep. They liked the photos they had seen on the net, but wanted to take their own pics. So on Saturday I met with their representative out here in Vegas at a 4x4 shop parking lot, she took some more pictures, and called me back Sunday and said her people liked the look. Well here is where it gets very interesting, she tells me the camera crew will be coming out Today and we all need to meet at the Regency Hotel Casino tomorrow, the caravan out to a photo shoot at the Valley of Fire. They are hoping to get the material they need in one day but it may take two, but in any case I get paid for a minimum of 2 days for my time, at, get this, $400 a day. Naturaly I said sure.
Ill take some pics tomorrow of the whole brewhahah, and post them. My Jeep will be a Movie Star, hahahaha.
Oh yeah all of this love and attention is for a packaging and game cover for a new Sony Playstation 2 off road video game. I hope I havent said more than Im supposed to, Her people are supposed to contact my people(me) today to finalize and prep for tomorrow. Pretty Cool huh?
I think the Jeep needs an agent, this will be the 3rd Photo Shoot in the last month, and Im getting tired of cleaning it.

Re: Interesting proposal.

Sooo.... pretty cool - was wondering if they were going to airbrush in some round headlights [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] (Just kidding) [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] You should have someone take pictures of them taking pictures. (if allowed)

Re: Interesting proposal.

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] You know what the BEST part about all this is? IT's YOUR JEEP that they want to show, and we've all seen the pics of the "parking lot" upgrades being done to it by YOU. This is proof positive that man can prevail and make something exceptional, no matter what the "perceived" difficulties may be. "Perceived Difficulties" are just that.....PERCEIVED. In your case, Jeff, that word doesn't seem to matter all that much. This is just GREAT! Just goes to show......this BBS IS #1!!!!!!!!![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Interesting proposal.

Maybe NOW we can get a picture of you smiling? Oh wait, maybe those are of you smiling...

Lucky guy, but then that's a heck of a jeep and you've put a lot of work into it. Great job!
