I've been contacted by a publicity/talent agency:
My name is Farryn Bowles and we are a staffing company. I have a client looking for experienced Kite Fliers in Chicago for September 1 and 2 from 11am-5pm paying $150 a day. We are looking for kite fliers to fly and promote the Cartoon Network series “How to Train your Dragon”. Can you help me or point me in the direction of someone that can? I need to hear back asap please.
Here's some more info:
the kites are small, commercial SLKs, probably Gayla type stuff.
You'd do a little over-the-phone training and then fly the kites near Navy Pier (at Gateway Park) each afternoon. They will teach you enough so that you can talk about the TV program to curious passerby.
They are looking for outgoing types that will also wear this costume:
If you're not going to Two Rivers and are interested, post here.
I told her I would get back to her tomorrow.
