Sure Mitch, that would be fantastic!
 
I'm attaching a document that we've been passing on to groups we're interested in. It gives a bit more detail about how we envision
 the show and what particular skill sets we're looking for from candidates. It also gives details on how to apply to be on the show, including a link to the online questionnaire and instructions for completing a casting video. Please feel free to pass it on
 to anyone you like.
 
Thanks Mitch!
 
Jesse

Hi Jesse,

 

This might be something that some people at Noisebridge would love to do.  Would you like me to forward your email to the Noisebridge discuss list?

 

Lemme know and I'll forward it.

 

This is something I'd love to do, but it is looking like I have way too little time to add anything to my already-too-full plate.

 

Best,

Mitch.

Dear NoiseBridge,
 
Proper Television is developing a new series about Makers—people with an intense passion for building all manner of contraptions for all manner of purposes.
 We’re currently in the midst of casting characters for the series, and have been reaching out to various groups in an effort to build a Dream Team of Makers. Your organization seems pretty dialled in to this community.
 
Without belabouring the details, the series will revolve around our team of Makers facing off against other groups in maker-related competitions. Competitions
 like:
 
-Modifying a lawnmower into a 70mph drag racer
-Designing catapults to hurl pumpkins across football fields
-Constructing Rube Goldberg machines
-Building human-powered submarines
 
Our goal is to find multifaceted individuals with aptitude in numerous fields pertinent to these sorts of projects. People with experience in things like engineering,
 electronics, physics, welding, pyrotechnics, construction, engines and industrial design—these are the sorts we’re looking to get in touch with.
 
Is this something that might interest you or your group? If so, we’d love to hear from you! If not, we could very much use your help spreading the message to
 as many Makers as possible.
 
Thank you for your time, keep up the great work!
