Great news but OMG how do I do it?
A short back story: I'm a long-term member of Brooklands Museum and I've helped occasionally doing voluntary work there.
Last month, while on a family visit, one of the management staff hoodwinked me to the office and asked to see one of my scripts. On Saturday I received an email asking whether they could see me today, and duly obliged.
Spent the whole of this morning running thru details. The upshot of all this nonsence is they want me to write an hour long documentary on the history of the museum (not the avaiation or motor racing) since the mid 80s. The script itself doesn't trouble me in the slightest. Deadline is beginning of May this year.
Here's where the aggro comes in: I need to spend three days a week (minimum) researching, interviewing past and present staff on-site; all the exhibits and where they were obtained, and how it's grown from a grassy wasteland into one of the best, working museums.
With my current working and home commitments, at this moment, can't see how this can be achieved. It's a fabulous opportunity to wedge the foot in the door of professional screenwriting, but OMG where will I find the hours in the day?
HELP!! ADVICE!! please.
