    WHEN: March 15th 1:30-3:30
    WHERE: Manly Youth Centre on Kangaroo St in Manly
    WHY:
    Well, Polcheck has moved into it's second season, and now we need YOUR help.

    For those who don't know, The Polcheck Chronicles is a web series started by myself and Pat Feary about a Detective named Hans Polcheck. He goes around solving crime and occasionally fighting aliens. Ok, that was just one time.

    Anyway.

    The entire series is Improv, so whilst we have episodes plotted in advance, the dialogue and set ups are done on the day. Our first results (Several years ago now) were a mixed bag; Funny, but technically inadequate. As we move into Season 2, we have a bit more of a budget and talent to make the series much better, and so we are.

    The episode in question has a band called Sentence Fragment hire Hans to go undercover with them and try and find a killerwho is knocking them off. Hans becomes their bass player, and does a gig with them, so he will be on stage if anything happens.

    The squence we are shooting is a concert sequence and so i need a crowd. In fact i need a big one. folks, the more of you that can come, the better off we will be. The music is a very bad rip-off of bands like My Chemical Romance. Yes, they're emo. So please dress accordingly. All i need folks to do is come along, scream and yell and hve fun at the band. Ill occassionally ask for silent takes, where you mime what u are doing with minimal noise. Depending on numbers, you may be moved to different spots at different times to make it look more crowded.

    please add comments if u have any questions, and also PLEASE feel free to invite friends. The more we have the better this will work.

    i can offer nothing but (Hopefully) some food for those who come and the chance to bein a small series no one will ever see. Except the 4000 or so viewers who have watched each of the other episodes.

    So reply here or on Facebook or wherever u like, but PLEASE come along. I need the help!!!

    Remember we talked about this originally and I said it's the first time I haven't been cast as either a bodyguard/bouncer/hitman/criminal/drug dealer/pimp?

    And now you have me attempting to kill people?

    Talk about typecast...

    To be fair, it was more your PART that evolved into that than a pre-planning on my part...
