Mufti Games WLTM designers/makers/inventors for fun times (extended deadline)
We are a Bristol based team of theatre-makers who love to work with performers, musicians and designers to make and to play games.
Our flagship games, MASSIVE BATTLESHIPS and L_VE HANGMAN, have been played at a range of festivals, street events and theatres including Festival Number 6, Bristol Festival of Puppetry, Bristol Old Vic and partners on the Northern Touring Network, and we have created original commissions for Bristol 2015 Green Capital and the Barbican Centre.
We've been lucky enough to work with some brilliant designers and makers to date (including Corina Bona, Kid Carpet, Will Datson and Priormade). Each project and game is a bit different, calling for different skills, disciplines and ways of working, so we're looking to broaden our knowledge of who's out there who might want to get involved, and join our multi-talented squad of associates.
This isn't a job offer, but there are tasks and projects in the pipeline and new ideas to be cooked up together. So if you design and/or make brilliant, ingenious, playful ‘things’ (costumes, sets, contraptions, sounds etc) and you like to play games, we'd love to hear from you.
We'll invite a number of artists/makers along to meet in Bristol on Thu 21 Jan to have tea and talk about their work (may be even play a game). If you’re interested in getting to know each other, please send a short covering email (150-250 words is fine), subject heading “Designer/maker WLTMU”, to email@example.com stating:
Please also include/attach at least one of the following:
Make sure your email reaches us no later than 5pm, Mon 11 Jan (nb. deadline was previously 4 Jan). Please don't attach image files, any other docs, or movies etc.
If we'd like to meet we'll let you know by Fri 15 Jan. If you can't make the date or we've already met and you just want to check-in again, please do feel free to drop a line anyway to say hello. We’re happy to hear from people outside of Bristol, but regret that we can’t pay expenses.
PS. We'll be putting out a similar call for performers soon, so hold fire, and watch this space!
