The activation involves a person wearing a pigeon head mask and cheap grey suit setting up a table in the middle of Edinburgh Gardens with a large sign that says “Pigeons are the superior bird. Change my mind.” (Pretty much just like the Steven Crowder meme)
Over the course of the day, the pigeon person will discuss the finer points of said statement with the locals who are intrigued by the set up. People who come up for a chat will win some beer.
Dotted throughout the day, our pigeon person will also engage in pigeon like activities, such as communing with other pigeons.
It's all about having fun, a bit of banter, and making participants feel comfortable so we can have natural and interesting interactions.
Applicants must be witty, approachable, easy going, up for some banter, and willing to look a bit silly. Being a bird nerd will also help but is not necessary.
There may also be one scene where the actor's head will be shown.
The activation will be the main focus, but we'll also be shooting both video and still content to put up on our social channels after the fact.
Costuming will involve wearing a pigeon head mask, cheap grey suit, and cheap dress shoes.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesActivation dates will be either Sunday the 6th of December 2020 (Preferred) or Saturday the 5th of December 2020. This will likely depend on the weather conditions.
