Just found this...
Our dear and extremely talented friend Amanda Palmer from the Dresden Dolls is filming a video in London this Sunday - we think you lot might be able to help her out... Please email the address below with any questions - not us!
"LEEDS UNITED" MUSIC VIDEO EXTRAS / VIDEOGRAPHER NEEDED we still need folks in london-town to be extras in the "leeds united" shoot this sunday....here are the details from the mouth of danger ensemble/directing god, steven mitchell wright:
Help Amanda create the most amazing video ever for her debut solo single! The video for "Leeds United" shoots in Central London on Sunday 31 August and if you are free that day we need YOU to lend your general fabulousness (and potential videography skills) to the production! The "audience" is a big part of the story in the video, and nearly every person who comes along will be strongly featured in the finished product - which will be seen by millions worldwide. We need three sorts of folks to fill out our audience (read the way end of this section if you're strictly interested in the videographer gig):
1. Folks who think Leigh Bowery is an icon of our times and that there is no such thing as too much. The truly avant-garde/performance art dressers will be put down right at the front of the stage in comfortable seats at tables with sugary food, like the court of Gormenghast, and get the best seats to watch Amanda strut her stuff mere feet away. Note: we heart drag, transgender, big, small, old, young - our church of beauty is very large and its doors are always wide, wide open.
2. Folks who like dressing up but, hmm, latex, no - you'll be up on the balconies shouting and cheering and carrying on. Amanda and the Dolls have a reputation of having the best-looking fanbase/audience in indie music and we want to immortalize this (and you) in the video. If nothing else, to make other bands jealous.
3. Men who really can't be bothered to dress up. You will be given a Leeds United shirt and get to act like a football hooligan. So, ladies and gentlemen, if you're a big Dolls / Amanda fan but your male partner can't really be bothered to dress, he can still be a part of this.
Anyway, it'll be a laugh, from mid morning on Sunday 31st to about 5pm. If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
with your email and mobile numbers.
Now the boring (but important) stuff: security reasons mean we can only let in people whose names are On The List, so you are unlikely to be able to bring friends at the last minute - make sure we have their names/contact details in advance. Also, because American lawyers are fascist pigs, we can't use anyone under 18 years old. This annoys us greatly and we are sorry. ALSO: we are looking for a videographer with camera to come and shoot (a "documentary" of the day)...we will feed you and give you tons of love and affection. e-mail steven if this is you and you are in london and free on saturday! Let's get a bunch of cool people together and make art (and friends).
