ヒカさん、

新プログラム用のサンプル動画の制作がようやく折り返し地点まで進捗しました。当初の予想に比べ大幅に時間がかかっており、この制作プロセス自体を見直す必要があるのではと感じています。目標としている質と制作にかけられる労力が合っていないようです。

次の会議までに間に合うよう鋭意努力しますが、とても間に合いそうにありません。未完成の動画と共に、制作アプローチの代替案の提案を検討中です。ご報告まで。

今後の仕事での英語メールの参考になれば幸いです。

Hello everyone. Welcome to E-mail Picks.
This week, I've been working on creating

0:00:10.110,0:00:14.849
a video that involves a lot of
production. I need to do a lot of editing

0:00:14.849,0:00:19.680
and think about how to make that video
look good, much more than the regular

0:00:19.680,0:00:24.119
videos I make. I'm trying to see if we
can make video products that people

0:00:24.119,0:00:28.500
would really want instead of products
that people feel they may or may not

0:00:28.500,0:00:33.750
need. So quality is really important here.
There's a big internal meeting coming up

0:00:33.750,0:00:37.559
next Monday and I was planning to
complete the video by then so that I

0:00:37.559,0:00:41.460
could present it and get feedback from
the other participants. But I've realized

0:00:41.460,0:00:46.350
that that's probably not going to happen. I
mean, it takes a lot of time to create

0:00:46.350,0:00:52.170
even one quality video and not only do I
think I won't make it to the deadline,

0:00:52.170,0:00:57.690
but also I don't think this kind of
video creation process is sustainable. So

0:00:57.690,0:01:01.530
today, I want to write to my boss to
report the problem I've been having with

0:01:01.530,0:01:06.180
production speed, and also I want to hint
at the need for a change in approach.

0:01:06.180,0:01:12.630
So here goes. Hika, I've finally come halfway through making a sample video for our

0:01:12.630,0:01:16.170
new program. It's been taking an awful
lot more time than we had anticipated

0:01:16.170,0:01:20.460
and I'm starting to reconsider the
practicality of this approach. The

0:01:20.460,0:01:24.030
quality we are aiming for and the
resources we are willing to put in just

0:01:24.030,0:01:28.020
don't seem to balance. I will try my best
to complete the video in time for the

0:01:28.020,0:01:31.799
next big meeting, but I doubt I will. I'm
considering proposing an alternative

0:01:31.799,0:01:38.189
approach along with an unfinished sample. Just to let you know. Kyota. OK, in the

0:01:38.189,0:01:42.270
first paragraph, I reported that the
work's not progressing as fast as we

0:01:42.270,0:01:46.710
hoped it will, but notice I didn't
apologize for it. It's because I'm doing

0:01:46.710,0:01:51.720
my job. I've put in maximum effort to
prepare the sample video and as a result,

0:01:51.720,0:01:55.979
I found out that this involves a lot
more work than we expected. That's an

0:01:55.979,0:02:00.600
important finding. There's no need for
anyone to say sorry here. I finished the

0:02:00.600,0:02:05.310
e-mail by writing that I am considering
going with Plan B because I found out

0:02:05.310,0:02:09.530
that plan A was unrealistic. So what I
really did in this e-mail was

0:02:09.530,0:02:14.510
to reset expectations into more
realistic ones. So there you go. An e-mail

0:02:14.510,0:02:19.700
to report hardships in a project. And now
I need to get back to video editing or

0:02:19.700,0:02:24.380
maybe get some eye drops first.
Anyway thanks for watching. I'll see you

0:02:24.380,0:02:26.710
next week.
