Just a quick message to say we’re looking for a fight director for two separate projects. The job could suit either one candidate, or two separate specialists.
Project 1: Titus Andronicus: An All-Female Production (fringe tour)
Our sister company, Smooth Faced Gentlemen, are taking a vibrant and violent all-female production of Titus Andronicus to the Edinburgh Fringe this summer. Titus Andronicus is Shakespeare’s bloodiest and most brutal story, farcical and tragic in equal measures.
We’re looking for a fight director to work with the company during our rehearsals, which take place throughout May and June. The time commitment is flexible, but we’d anticipated working with you for between two and eight sessions, depending on how the production shapes up and the advice of whoever comes on board.
The company is still fundraising, so this position is currently being advertised as unpaid. It will suit someone keen to work with an award-winning, ground-breaking new company, or looking to increase their exposure and experience. And of course, if the collaboration goes well, it could lead to great things in the future!
Project 2: Missing Something (web-sitcom)
We’re also seeking a fight director for a short scene we’re filming for Missing Something, the new sitcom we’ve just successfully funded on Kickstarter. We’re shooting a comedy fight scene this weekend, as part of the advance promo for the series We can’t give too much away, but it involves a masked vigilante, three muggers, Cuth McWildered, and a lot of slow motion.
For this, we need someone available on Saturday 4th May, and adept at working quickly. We’ll be rehearsing during the day, from 4pm onwards, and shooting between around 8pm and midnight. At this point, we can offer food and expenses for the day, and of course a copy of the completed project.
And, again, we’ll be needing fight director when we shoot the full series in September, so if this goes well you’ll be first in line!

If you’re interested in either project, just drop me (Yaz) a quick message through on firstname.lastname@example.org asap.
