the old samurai


One of my Facebook Page followers sent me the following:

Hey there,

This might be out of left field, but I wanted to share a Samurai short we just premiered online today that I thought you and your readers at tgace.com

Inspired by lightning-fast duels in Samurai classics such as Sanjuro – this film started with a simple question: What if you could capture the split second between first draw and final blow?

After conversations with our friends who practice Kendo and other martial arts, and armed with a 1000 frame per second camera and a rain machine – we shot a pensive story about an old samurai facing his worthiest opponent yet.

The film also features the soundtrack debut of Christopher Guanlao of Silversun Pickups fame.
