Help around extras, swordfights and stunts

Post#1 » Wed Oct 28, 2009 4:49 pm

Hello,
we are the Order of the Silver Dragon from Croatia (Europe). We do medieval reenactment, sword fighting, armour makin etc.
We also publish first Croatian fantasy magazine called Grifon. You can see our photos on our web page http://www.srebrnizmaj.com/index_eng.htm (direct english version link)
We need "your" help - since we are great fans of Tolkien and the books adaptation we would like to preform (if that's possible) stunts in battle scenes (free of charge) in new movie - in Hobbit.
Do you know how to get in touch with anybody from (pre) production of the Hobbit movie? Got any ideas?

Tnx for the advice - do you maby have links to other forums?

BTW we are not so interested in "ordinary" extras for the movie....we want to participate in battle scenes as stunts (and off course, if there will be need we can do the ordinary extras jobs).
We practice sword fighting and battle fights with medieval weapons, and since we are skilled with weapons we would like to offer our "swords" and "axes" in battle and fighting scenes.
We have some experience with filming movies, we often preform on knight tournaments and medieval fairs, and once we even did couple "amateur" LOTR show with Zagreb philharmonic. Budget for that show was 0 money - we got no money for costumes so we had to improvise (and we had only one day to prepare)...it turned out to be pretty good - we even scared small kids, and the had to leave the music hall.

I'll post couple of photos form that show....and do mind that was amateur, althou we, as the group, are professionals - you can see that from first photo 8-)

PS: sorry form my bad english :mrgreen:

Uruk hai...man of Dunland...done in 30 minutes with no budget for masks or costumes (even if we had some budget there was no time, because we were contacted day before the show/concert)
