It doesn't have skulls and bones, nor does it have your cheesy and generic 'face the pain' music. This is All Elbows at their finest, so trust me when I say it is a must watch. Props to E. Casey Leydon and Esther Lin for constantly producing top notch work.
After the jump, check out their thoughts on the clip.
Here's a snippet on Esther's thoughts which she wrote on the All Elbows website:
Back in April, Casey and I went to Kansas City and shot Invicta Fighting Championships from all angles. I took photography of the event, but I also did video portraits of every fighter. Casey shot video on fight night and did post-fight video portraits. He had many ideas on how it should come together but when he heard "In The Chapel" by Candles of Paradise, the images were set. From the moment we started in this business, we’ve been enthralled by fighting. I do indeed think of the cage/ring as an altar, the venue a chapel — not to worship, but to reflect on ourselves as humans. We come together as fans to experience it together. Live fights have a different excitement from the ones we watch on TV.
We hope this video imparts to you that absolute magic and joy we felt that night, being a part of the very first Invicta show.
We recommend you hook up your computer to the TV, stream the HD version, and turn up the volume.
