Monsters, Inland

The folks behind Kaiju Big Battel are about to undertake the most ambitious video project in Studio Kaiju's history: The Birth of the Swarm. The centerpiece of Kaiju's second nationally-distributed DVD -- the first will be released Sept. 30 -- this shoot on Saturday, Oct. 11, calls for almost 70 performers plus crew. If you're interested in participating, the deadline is today.

The Birth of the Swarm shoot is a Kaiju-branded spoof of the battle scenes in the movie Braveheart. Firmly grounded in the Kaiju brand, the script calls for a healthy mix of physical action, storytelling, parody, and comedy. Performers will be wearing costumes (including masks), primarily as one of Dr. Cube's Minions or as a Swarm member. Light physical activity (running down a field, simple choreographed movements) is required. The vast majority of the roles require no experience in either acting or live monster combat, however.

If you live in the Boston area and want to get in on the Big Battel action, email the studio your name, age, and contact information soon. Like today.
