The Clan Crusader documentary, “Blades of Glory” and a newly produced short film about classic British getaway cars, starring the Mk2 Jaguar have been submitted to two prestigious International Film Festivals.
Blades of Glory tells the story of the charismatic Whitley Bay tailor, Johnny Blades and his Northern Mod Sports title-winning season of 1973 in the works racing Clan Crusader. The film has received positive feedback from all corners of classic motoring and motorsport.
The film has been submitted for two awards – ‘Best Documentary Feature’ and ‘Best Independent Film’ in the prestigious International Motor Film Awards, judged by a high profile panel which includes former Top Gear and Fifth Gear Presenter Tiff Needell, and Gumball 3000’s Maximillion Cooper.
Flawed Hero is a short story which visually depicts the plight of the archetypal 1960s movie getaway car, the Mk2 Jaguar and cars like it. The film has been entered in the Depict! short film festival for short films of 90 seconds and less. Telling any story in a film this short is a challenge enough, but Flawed Hero also attempts to tell this story without words or dialogue.
