Corporeal Punishment is a short film. It's a short film about corporal punishment.
Actually, it's a short film about the thoughts that go through the mind of a schoolboy as he experiences corporal punishment. What would happen if those thoughts became reality? Became corporeal? So you see, the title isn't a spelling mistake. It may be a very bad pun, but it is definitely not a spelling mistake. At least that's our excuse, and we're sticking to it.
Produced as a music video back in 2001, the original version went on to win the Best Music Video Award at The Cascadia Film Festival in 2002. The song was never released, so apart from that one award winning day in the sun, the finished promo never saw the light of day.
Until one day, ten years later, the director realised he could re-edit it into a short film. So he did, and here it is at long last!
