During his first battle Lieutenant Shada fell from his horse, and failed to carry out his duty. Major Havelock offers him the option to save his career, and take twenty lashes rather than face a court martial.
Havelock's Campaign, Chapter 2: Military Discipline.
This is the second episode of our historical military series inspired by the British Colonial era. Click here for chapter 1, The New Lieutenant.
During his first battle of the campaign, Second Lieutenant Shada was tasked with carrying a crucial message, but failed to carry out his duty after his horse stumbled and broke a leg. Major Havelock gives the young officer a firm dressing down, but takes pity and offers him a final chance to save his career. Rather than face a court martial, Shada must suffer the punishment of a cadet, rather than an officer, one last time, and bend over for twenty lashes from his superior.

Out-takes from Andrew's interview and 'Military Discipline', including blocking shots and planning dialogue, checking in with Andrew during the punishment, everyone admiring his dramatic marks, and Tom getting the salute wrong at the end!
Tom asks Andrew how he feels after his first day of shooting spanking video - what he found easy, what he didn't, what expected and what he didn't! They also discuss the strap, the crop, switching - and whether he would come back for more.
Thanks Andrew, it was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to shooting with you again in 2014!
