Sir AElfred Lionstar of the Kingdom of Atenveldt reports that a Public Service Commercial for Valley Big Brothers and Sisters featuring armored combatants will be filmed July 9, 2011 in Encanto park near Phoenix, Arizona.
Sir AElfred writes:
One of my friends is filming a commercial for Valley Big Brothers and Sisters and has asked me to get volunteers from the SCA for a melee situation in the commercial. Our part of the filming will be at Encanto Park on Saturday July 9th in the afternoon. This is the same weekend as "Too Darn Hot" in Ered Sul. This is a Public Service Commercial, so there's no pay, but you can say that you were an extra in a commercial. Please wear your finest armor.
The premise of the commercial is to show a guy preparing to be a Big Brother in the program. He knows kids can be tough and have a wide variety of interests, so he wants to be ready. He tries several different activities including SCA Hardsuit Combat. That's where we come in. The actor will need be in some loaner armor, then be thrown into a melee. There will be scenes of him in various conditions like enthusiastic, scared, roughed up, ready to go again, etc.
The Producer has asked for "50-100 fighters". He realizes this is short notice and has conflicts.
So, who's interested?
