Become a Human Dalek!
Whilst Kasterborous is always on the lookout for new writing talent, it is certainly not a jobs website. However, it has come to our attention that there is a little bit of work going for those that are interested but it might not be what you expected. Nor would it be for Kasterborous!
A themed even, Doctor Who themed of course, is being held in Bognor on a Saturday in May and the organisers need someone with a big personality but not necessarily a big frame to be a Dalek operator.
That’s right, you could actually sit in a Dalek prop for a day and pretend to be a Dalek, following in the steps of legends such as John Scott Martin; it’s literally a dream come true!
To give you some more details, the organisers specify that:
“You will need to be of small build but strong in order to fit inside the Dalek and not be worried by being in a confined space. You will have to move the Dalek around, they are quite heavy & awkward there will be a “Big Race” between the two Daleks at some point.”
So please bear in mind that if you apply to this you have to seriously want to do it. If you get the job you will be working a 0930 until 1630 time slot with the last hour devoted to packing everything up.
You will be talking through a ring modulator so you’ll sound like Skaro’s finest and you’ll need one massive personality to back that up and interact with crowds of people. You’ll also receive sixty pounds for your trouble!
