Andrew: Matt told me that you are asking him a couple of questions about the money issues and something like that.
Andrew: And I actually did a detailed budget this weekend and it is not good at all.
Molly: It is not what?
Andrew: It is not good like literally we got no money for everything. We literally go to it like find clothes you know what I mean?
Andrew: So I was thinking for the most part, zombies we do want like a variety of clothes for them but this typical like zombie shit.
Molly: Those, I am not as worried about so much as the leads.
Andrew: The leads yes.
Molly: I was going to tell Matt to that I would want $500.00 ideally—chances are, I would use $250.00.
Andrew: What do you think would cause that?
Molly: I think—I mean for one thing the dress needs to double. I thought it was triple then Matt said that there title on the script that he gave me. And the girls clothes I think especially if you want 80s that would be easy and cheap.
Andrew: If you can do something like it will come look 80s but I do not know. We kind of want to get that look across like maybe they came from 80s party. You know it is that style too.
Molly: Yes, but there is a lot of that right now.
Andrew: Yes, so it is true?
Molly: No, it really is.
Andrew: So, I still want that kind of thing but like very suddenly like maybe make something that kind of extra look different you know like.
Molly: I think she can be very beautiful, I think her clothing should reflect something different. I mean I think the dress that we can put on her can be a very, very cute stylish, sundress or whatever. But the color or something we can consider apart.
Andrew: So, the rest of this paragraph—yes, these paragraph here just talk about—that we would use your picture and photograph and sound and all that. We are going to put in our movie. It says in here that we are going to use it for the movies and that will be all right.
And then that we are allowed to distribute it and that kind of stuff. The second one, essentially what he says that you are not going to see when I said that you do not like it and that is pretty much the basics of it. The third one here says essentially about the residuals.
It is because the residuals and the way that it is placed is they are outside of the scale. So like everyone is set in a level and depending on like eat, they will share for example and the script has not been cast yet. But if he comes on and decides to have more respect to the residuals, then we have to fight everyone in their own places.
So I could not put a percentage in there because they were changed too much. So, essentially what it says is that you acknowledge that it is on the outside of the scale. And then also I mean if we sold one DVD it might be a couple of sense but it is ought one and accumulates that money comes in so to avoid the new running attack to everyone for every single DVD that get sold.
It just also says that you acknowledge and you give me the permission to keep the money and tell me if I cannot this to you when it has accumulated enough.
Andrew: It is actually worth it. This last one on here just says that you will be free, your free present selling issue. And then it also says that it is not good how—it does not dare anything it just says that essentially, you will make an effort to be available in case when you pick up shots.
This is in paragraph and on in this one says that no one else is sending this but you and then the last one says that you are good at it and most at it.
Andrew: And as pretty much as it is you are more than welcome to read.
Molly: Coffee break but we are going to have coffee on set all the time right?
Molly: Good because I am going to need it.
Andrew: When we finish with the contacts and who has to be aware. Can you contact the people who have to be on like tomorrow call? Everyone who has to be at some point this weekend. Let us try and set for the rest of the days you know kind of the same deal where dinner i
