[Sca-cooks] OT (but in period) request

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 
to be.

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.
