This short film is so simple, but I found it compulsive viewing. It features one hundred drummers, aged from one to one hundred. Time marches on to the drumbeats, allowing us to glimpse the aging process in fast forward.
Some drummers simply drum once and say nothing. Others want to tell us their age: some embarrassed, some proud of their years. Others are drum show-offs, not content with just one beat.
I think it’s the human side of this that makes it such an appealing video. On paper it’s an interesting concept, but a repetitive one. But this is presented with such good humor and charm that the viewer just can’t help but smile.
