This is the only SCA-list I'm on, but I'm sure there are people here who
can pass this on to friends who might be interested. It's for
fighter-types in reach of London to appear in a music video - the request
came on Neil Gaiman's journal (http://journal.neilgaiman.com/).
Hello all. This may sound like an odd request, but Neil [Gaiman] has made
odder ones in the past and he seems to get away with it...
I have been asked to supply big beardy warrior types for a music video that
promises to be a grand showcase of daftness - a 'Monty Python and the Holy
Grail' extravaganza of nuttiness! It's for Justin Hawkins of The Darkness
and his new band, Hot Leg.
Would you like to charge around in a big field by a castle wielding swords
and whatnot? We're after medieval re-enactment types with their own
costumes, weapons, vague sense of how to wield stabbing implements etc.
The shoot will be in striking distance of London. You'll have to find your
own way there but madness and MTV fame lie at the end of your journey,
honest. We need as big an army as possible for one day and a select few for
the other, when we'll be shooting the big fight scene with the band.
I'll be there to a) stand around being cold, and b) tell you where you need
So here's what we need from you in an email to hawkins.video at gmail.com:
- Your availability from Saturday 30th August to Tuesday 2nd September
- A photo of yourself
- A list of any weapons you're bringing along.
