Alex Courtney "Drongo Plays the Drums" Electric Eel Fish Films

Drongo Plays the Drums is the first film made by Alex Courtney, aka Electric Eel Fish Films, to the music of Albert Hammond Jr - GfC. I know less than nothing about the creator save that I received the link via my increasingly active email. I normally like to relate something of the plot but there isn't one, other than a deceptively vacant fellow who bashes the living daylights out of his drum kit, though in perfect synchronisation with the music. A clever piece of work, good characterisation and a pleasantly raucous track. When Drongo thumps his foot down on the pedal drum you feel it.
