Stringer (Ryan) & Trevor (Tom) are GREEN LIGHTNING, a band covering (read: lip-syncing) some of their favorite songs to no-show crowds.

Tom’s notes: When I returned to town in 2008, Dark Departure 2 was not the first movie idea Ryan and I had. We decided to turn our respective passions for different types of music in to a comedy about wannabe rockers.. The unfinished project is somewhat symbolic of Dark Departure Movies as a whole - the story was to be about forcing change on a creative enterprise in the guise of legitimacy, with the characters ultimately deciding to go back to what they had been doing because it was what they loved and had fun doing together, successful or otherwise. After filming what is preserved in this video, Ryan and I came to a similar conclusion - we weren’t having as much fun trying to do something we believed was more legitimate than Dark Departure, and thus Dark Departure 2 was born.

Filmed in 2008.

Fun facts: The name "Green Lightning" comes from a band name Tom thought up in 5th grade, simply because he thought it sounded cool. This fake band's songs included "Party Animal" and "Humid Subtropical Man", both of which Tom still remembers the (admittedly simple) lyrics to. Also, "Green Lightning" can be seen in Dark Departure 2, as Jason is watching it on his computer screen before his girlfriend enters. The band logo is also used for the Green Lightning energy drink that revives Jason before the climax.
