Primary Faction is an exciting science fiction web series/TV pilot that’s currently in pre-production. The series includes a fictional combat sport called Tycan. On Sunday morning I rose very early and dragged myself onto 3 buses to the North London suburb of Grange Park to capture the Red City Reevers, the Boondock Buccaneers and the Junk Yard Dogs battle over a can. The aim of the game is to score by placing the can into a pillar at either end of the playing pitch. Its a little bit like American Football with swords, nunchucks, staves, batons and any other melee weapon the players can arm themselves with.
It was very cold, very wet and very muddy. I’ve got much respect for the players who subject themselves to the conditions to create such an amazing spectacle. Click here to see the rest of the photos: Primary Faction and Tycan photos by Angus Young
