Strike Fandom Film Montage: ‘Still Life’

I’m not a big fan of the teevee adaptation of the Cormoran Strike novels, but lovely films like this ‘Still Life’ by “iriis” help me understand why I am an extreme outlier among Serious Strikers in this regard. Not only does it highlight the wonderful actors playing Robin and Cormoran, but the skillful editing and background music make for a captivating montage, from the couple’s first meeting to a shot of the post American Bar office scene in the dark.

In the comment boxes below, please let me know your favorite YouTube video artists in the Strike fandom and what you think is their best work. And has anyone attempted to film scenes from the books on their own, productions apart from the Bronte Studio versions, akin to what Harry Potter fandom has done through the years?


  1. I just finished reading your post on the Hogwarts Professor blog about the significance of the “strike fandom” film montage and the still life that follows it in the Harry Potter films, and I have to say that it was a really thought-provoking read. As a fan of the Harry Potter series, I’ve always been interested in the different ways that the films and books convey meaning, and your analysis of these particular scenes was really insightful.

    I appreciated the way that you delved into the symbolism of the objects and images in the still life, such as the toy car and the tarot cards. Your explanation of the tarot cards as representing the different archetypes of the characters in the series was particularly interesting, and it gave me a new appreciation for the depth of the storytelling in the films.

    The way that you linked these scenes to the larger themes of the series, such as the role of choice and free will, was also really effective. It made me reflect on the ways that these themes are woven throughout the series as a whole, and how they contribute to the overall message of the story.

    Overall, I really enjoyed reading your post and I found it to be a great exploration of the deeper meanings and symbolism in the Harry Potter films. Thanks for sharing your insights with us!
