This short film was created from the sword fighting segments from the Lightning Strikes video that I made for their single 'Stick To Me', which can be seen here: vimeo.com/9356133.

For reasons of pacing and letting the band have a look in, it was impossible to use all of the sword fight that was artfully choreographed by Claire Llewellyn and skillfully executed by Lyndall Grant and Simon Johns. So, I put this stand-alone film together so all their work could be seen. Also, entirely new to this version, is the superb original score composed by Juan Iglesisas.

As it was never intended as a stand alone piece and was going to be inter-cut with the band performance, there are some moments that don't quite gel together in this version and there aren't as many reaction shots as I would have done had it solely been a drama. Nevertheless, the film ended up playing in the shorts corner at the Cannes Film Festival 2011 and has been selected for a couple of other shorts festivals.
