I just usually skip the briefing. I run the adventure in medias res and use flashbacks for the briefing, including equipment acquisition. Works really well. I know not everyone likes that, but I feel like the briefing scenes are very anti-cinematic and I like that they can requisition stuff they know they need with the benefit of hindsight.
