Raleigh Ritchie 'Bloodsport '15' by Shynola
Singer-songwriter and Game Of Thrones star Raleigh Ritchie gets to extend his acting range in the first of two videos for the revamped version of Bloodsport by Shynola, playing a man consumed with madness and revenge at the end of a relationship - but with a darkly comic twist.
Originally from his 2013 EP Black & Blue, Bloodsport ’15 now features a string section that heightens the heavy-hearted feeling of the original track, and the acclaimed directing team - once known exclusively for their animation work, now entirely established in live action - have created a brooding video to match.
Ritchie, in the midst of his despair, is sad, bad, and unpredictable, cutting up his girlfriend's clothes, attempting to flush a pair of red heels down the toilet and fashioning himself a pink balaclava.
And there's more to come in the second video, promises Sacha Szwarc at Speade, who edited both to the same track. "I was absolutely thrilled to work with Shynola on this project," says Sacha. "It was a pretty unique experience cutting a two part story narrative, but to the same song for both videos. More will be revealed in Part 2, but it was definitely interesting working to create harmonious balance between humour and, at times, it's slight darker side!"
