Sashay To Hell
A documentary about metal music and inclusivity in the scene I directed and edited for BBC iPlayer in 2021.
Can metal-fan Dan persuade pop-lover James that the scene is more welcoming than it appears?It was a lot of fun.
After learning how the metal community provides some fans and artists with a safe space in times of crisis, James decides to try on the subculture for size. He learns the secret to creating a 'vocal fry', loses his 'mosh virginity' and becomes an honorary member of Evil Scarecrow.
