Is there anyone who can stop by Builders Commonwealth on Garfield Avenue in the next hour (Today, Thursday) from 1:30 to 4:00 ?
We need shots of the guys building up the the parts of the house.

Please send select pictures to: martin@3five.com

Thanks in advance.

I can stop by there tomorrow since I'll be working next door, but I can't get down there today for at least a hour. Anyone else in the area?

I could stop by today but it would have to be after five, but if Noreeyay is free all day then im sure that would work better for 3five.

I'm just leaving the place now. The guys say it's going to be jumping about 5 tonight. They're gonna start prefabing the trim and stuff. Im going to stop back down for a few but it sounds right for your time frame Brandon.

I think a meeting and some drinks is in order for this weekend what do you guys think? Then we can also talk about shooting this event, anyone else game?

Does anyone have details about press passes and such, or if we will have restrictions on what we can do with the photos? We should probably have that information confirmed so that we know how many of us are going to be able to get on-site, when, and for how long before we make plans for shooting the event. If only a few of us will be able to get on-site we need to figure out how to decide which of us will get that opportunity.

@ Shana + Group,

I spoke with Lisa Blade yesterday at Builder's Common Wealth and i inquired about some of the questions that we have. I asked her about getting permission to shoot onsite and she said that press passes will be happening and that there will be multiple passes given to our group, i'm not sure if these passes are being created from Builder's Commonwealth or what, but i would imagine as soon as she has these completed that she will either contact Martin or Aaron, she was reluctant to provide me with much information short of signing a NDA, which should be happening because i'd like to be in the know so that i or someone else from the group can be "there" to shoot the knocking on the door, so to speak. It did sound like this event really is go for our group after learning about the press passes. I also learned that any photos that we take throughout this event (and this includes the photos taken @ the garfield ave building ) do belong to builders common wealth and cannot be given or distributed anywhere other than to 3Five. So....all photos of the event on flickr should be either taken down or set to private, now i seriously doubt that once the secret is out on who what and where for the event no one will care if we post our photos onto flickr, but as it stands now if your photos are of BCW they need to be taken down. BCW also mentioned that we will be taking photos of the construction from the outside, and that once all of the walls are up we can no longer take any shot which would show the inside of the house i.e window or door. because once the walls and roof are up on the house it is now ABC's property and so would our photos. So in order for us to stay on the good side of this event and not end up in a conflict with anyone i think we should not post any photos right now and be careful not only what you shoot out there but who shoot, once the event officially starts. I apologize that i did not post my findings sooner but i was crazy busy last night.

As i said in my last post i think that whoever is seriously planning on shooting this event (with the exception of Nate since he will be OOT) should all get together this weekend, i think if we got together we can all get on the same page and coordinate this event so that anyone who wants to shoot, can.
