Raleigh Ritchie 'Bloodsport '15 (Pt 2)' by Shynola
The second half of Shynola's unusual double-video project for Raleigh Ritchie's Bloodsport '15 is finally released – and it's darker, more violent, but also more zanily comedic than we might have expected.
In Part 1, we followed an impossibly anguished Raleigh, as he engaged in some unhinged post-breakup behaviour. But within the confines of his flat, his actions remain relatively innocuous, such as talking to a face drawn on paper, cutting up his ex's clothes, and hugging high-heels to his chest right after tossing them in the toilet.
This second episode sees him railing against the world and turning into a murderous sniper, literally shooting everyone's head off from his rooftop vantage point. But there's a cartoonish element to the live action carnage: heads trained within Raleigh's sights are replaced by a pink blob, as his rifle works like a more destructive version of cupid's bow and arrow.
And then it turns out he's not the only rooftop shooter...
