Hi there,

I'm looking to cast some Canadian gamers for an upcoming History/Discovery style television series.

I was wondering if you would possibly know of someone who fits the criteria I am after.

The gamers I am looking for can be of any gender or age, but must be Canadian citizens (for tax and funding purposes only).

These gamers must be specifically interested in Real Time Strategy games and extremely proficient in them, perhaps they are even pro gamers in this genre or have developed these types of games. If they are not professional though, at the very least they must play them often and well, and also be into the community - posting on forums such regarding the latest RTS games and the strategies used to win in them.

What's more, our RTS gamers must also have a keen interest in actual military history. They don't need to be geniuses in the subject, but are the kind of people who would watch WW2 documentaries on History Television, read a book or comic set during real wars, and know a bunch of military terms and tactics. The ideal candidate is someone who not only plays RTS games and enjoys/knows a lot about history - but someone who sees the connections between the two and even tries to use their knowledge of history and military tactics in games (those which would allow such expression).

The gamers must also be charismatic, extroverted, yadda yadda - the kind of people who can go on camera and be themselves, not freeze up under the lights.

I can not give out a lot of details regarding the show itself, what I can say though is that it is a history documentary series which seeks to use RTS gamers to play out significant battles and illustrate various military tactics used in the modern era. The positions are of course paid, and the gamers will also get to play with some amazing high-tech military simulators.
