Chessboxing at London’s York Hall

Chessboxing is perhaps the only sport on Earth to which the sight of someone being punched square in the face will prompt cheers of “CHECKMATE!” It’s also the subject of this editorial video that I produced for Culture Trip, in collaboration with the site’s Sport Editor.

The large contrast between Chess and Boxing proved a compelling challenge, both in terms of technical and stylistic considerations, throughout the project and required a fair bit of hustle during the shoot to ensure we got the coverage we needed.
