Rob Ulitski - 18th Sept 2020

A young martial artist travels to the big city to retrieve the head of a sacred statue, in Swim Club's new promo for Off The Meds. 

After infriltrating a secret society - via a tournament in the underworld - the character is tasked with retrieving the artefact and saving the day... but nothing is ever as easy as it looks. 

Despite the action-packed blurb, the video unfolds in a much more meditative, transcendent way. The fighting is replaced with dance-style sword twirling, and the entire aesthetic is colourful and softer than you'd expect.
