    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Crossposted so the WMA folks will see it

    Cut and paste from So you want to be on TV? - FMA Talk

    Woof All:

    My name is Marc "Crafty Dog" Denny. Some of you may know me as "the Guiding
    Force" of "the Dog Brothers" and/or the Head Instructor of Dog Brothers
    Martial Arts. www.dogbrothers.com . Today I speak as Dog Brothers Inc.

    I have been asked by a well established Producer with a good track record in
    doing athletically oriented television series for major networks to help
    develop a television show based upon stick and other weaponry fights, so I
    am looking for fighters. For the right men, this could be a very special
    opportunity to build a career doing something you love.

    For now I need to leave out the actual concept for the show. Know that it
    will be interesting and quite distinctive from shows like The Ultimate
    Fighter, Fight Quest, and others of their ilk. Trust me-- we will be
    outside the box in many ways!

    Although much of the fighting will be similar to our "Dog Brother Real
    Contact Stickfighting" (see the fight clips at
    http://www.dogbrothers.com/pages/multimedia.html to get an idea) because
    these fights will be professional there will be some important differences.

    If you would like to be considered, we need to see the following-- all
    submissions become the property of Dog Brothers Inc.:

    1) a one page resume. The resume should include the following:
    a) age, height, weight, citizenship, languages, website/mypage/etc. if
    any,
    b) martial arts background: systems, styles, teachers, fighting
    experience, competitive athletic background etc.
    c) contact info

    2) Photos: a) Head Shot
    b) Full Body shot. Not to worry if you are not body
    beautiful.

    3) The ideal candidate will be capable in as many of the following areas as
    possible, but it is understood that no one will be capable in all areas.
    Demonstrate as many or as few of the following as you wish. Know that if
    you suck at it, you are better leaving it out altogether!

    a) Double stick
    b) Single stick
    c) Staff
    d) knife
    e) emptyhand skills: MMA or otherwise
    f) gun skills (pistol, rifle, paintball)
    g) other (e.g. sword and shield, whip, nunchaku, fencing, etc)
    h) footage that indicates your strength and conditioning level.

    These skills should be presented both solo and against a partner/opponent.
    If you have fight footage please include it. MAKE CLEAR WHICH FIGHTER IS YOU
    (e.g. title on screen "I am fighter in blue shorts")

    ATTENTION: It is easy to develop a bit of diarrhea of the ego in assembling
    such a demo disc. KNOW THAT the people who will be watching this (e.g. me)
    are well seasoned in these things and do not need to see a lot to size up
    your movement and skills. While some flash is fine (indeed it helps sell on
    TV) remember that we are looking for fighters.

    Know that if you run on too long, you run the chance of the viewer just
    deciding to click on to the next candidate. Remember, we will be looking
    at a lot of these. While the footage need not be shot professionally, it
    should be easy to watch and hear.

    4) Talk to the camera: head/upper body shot, with good clear audio. We
    want to get a sense of why you do martial arts, what your philosophy is,
    why you want to do this, something interesting about yourself etc. We want
    to get a sense of your personality, so JUST BE YOURSELF.
    Unconventional/colorful is OK. So too is conventional/serious. JUST BE
    YOURSELF.

    Please send your resume and Demo Reel/Disc to

    This is going to be a total winner, my expectations are so high.

    Hopefully this gets developed all the way to a finished TV show and sticks to the dogbrothers vision the whole way.
