Meet Dan Russell. He loves all things swords and armor.
Watch out though, because when he gets into a bout he will absolutely smash you to bits.

Thanks to all the people from SCA Tasmania otherwise known as the Barony of Ynys Fawr for making this film so colourful.

Filmed by Jiemba Sands, Frederique Olivier and Max Moller on the Epic RED (the slow motion footage looks amazing).
