This time for the Hogfather film which is being made as a Christmas special for Sky One. Taken from the Discworld Monthly newsletter. It is unpaid and you need your own costume!
Now hear this ... or read it if you will, I have an important
The film company 'The Mob' are as I'm sure you are aware making the
Hogfather film for Sky Television. They have asked me to cast my
net in the sea of Discworld and come up with 70 or 80 good folk,
silly enough to want to appear in a crowd scene.
It will be the Great Hall of the UU and we need Wizards, Students,
and a few serving wenches. Obviously there are more students than
wizards, and serving wenches can be of all ages.
Now you must understand, there is no money, it will be a very early
start in London about or on the 1st May, you'll be hanging around
for hours, told to keep quiet, and most importantly YOU MUST HAVE
YOUR OWN COSTUME.
If a beard is part of your character then it has to be a good one,
really good, and all the chains, baubles and sashes as described in
the DW Companion.
If you are a student then the costume has to be 'right' from late
medieval to 19th century, again let the DWC be your guide. Wenches
and Maids. A mop cap, black garments, large apron.
What you have to do is this. Send me a picture full face, like a
passport photo of you unadorned, then another this one full length
of you in costume. These can be sent through the post or e-mailed.
If posted I cannot guarantee they will be returned, and they must be
very clearly labelled. E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will then send all the information to the casting director at The
Mob who will make the decision of who he can use. I need your
pictures in by no later than the 5th April, and I must reiterate I
am not doing the casting; it's the professionals at The Mob studio
that make all the decisions. However it should be huge fun, and
something to remember when we all get old.
