GFC arrangements for December / Jan


GFC arrangements for December / Jan:

Dear Industry Partners -

Kindly note that the GFC will be closing on the 18th of December 2009 and we will open again on the 4th of January 2010. All shoots taking place between 14 December 2009 and 11 January 2010 are requested to submit their permit applications to Rochelle Roscoe by no later than the 17th of December 2009. Note that we will not be able to assist with permit applications between 18 Dec – 10 January 2010 so it is essential that permit applications are submitted prior to our office closing.
For all location enquiries the industry can contact myself directly preferably by e-mail but they can also get hold of me on my cell at 083 455 9688.

We also would like to remind the industry that many of our location partners will be closing offices/ running on skeleton staff during the festive period, so urge all companies to confirm shoots as soon as possible. As the GFC will be on skeleton staff we unfortunately cannot guarantee that we will be able to assist with pitches and location enquiries during this period.
