Nativity Play Propsmonkey1979 (680 pencils) | Thu, 2009-12-10 18:30
Okay, so it started this morning, I had a huge pile of work to do, when my biggest client phones up and asks me if I can do him a favour for his sons primary school. I explain how busy I was and he said he would make sure it's worth my while (contract renewal in January) so I accepted. But he needs it by tomorrow evening. His son, 7, is head of props in the play. And is a bit of a lazy f**ker by the sounds of it. His Dad was panicking.
The headline and front page photo were all that were supplied, along with a brief to mock up a front page of their local newspaper with exagerated proportions for the narrators to hold their scripts in. I was told to make it 'funny'. Not how to make it funny, just 'funny'.
He's been unavailable all day.
I wouldn't have minded a pro-bono job like this if I had the time, but as it is I could only spare a couple of hours, including copywriting (apart from front page nativity story, I lifted that). Not long enough to be happy with it.
If anyones got any suggestions to make it a bit more jokey for 6-9 years olds and their parents it would be most appreciated.
I haven't got much time to spend on changes now, but all suggestions will be gratefully recieved.
I'm going to fire off a first proof tomorrow morning.
