To celebrate the launch of the documentary ‘Life After Flash’, events and film agency Sledge put on a private screening of the film at the Prince Charles Cinema and an after party at 100 Wardour Street. 

The film, created and produced by Sledge in association with Spare Change Films, tells the story of what life was really like for actor Sam J Jones after his iconic performance as Flash in the 1980 sci-fi Flash Gordon.

Jones and co-star Melody Anderson, who played Dale Arden in Flash Gordon, introduced the documentary and were given a very warm welcome by the packed cinema crowd. 

The after party was hosted at the Soho venue, ‘100 Wardour Street’ and featured a question and answer session with stars Anderson and Jones. The venue had an interactive video wall with slow motion technology on site, with interactive social media content provided by Events Tag. There was also a charity raffle for Brian May (who featured in the documentary) and Queen’s charity, ‘The Mercury Phoenix Trust’, with a host of signed memorabilia.

Comic book writer and creator of such hits as Kick-Ass and the Kingsman series of films, Mark Millar MBE, described the documentary as "hilarious, moving and just maybe the best documentary about Hollywood I've ever seen".
