This video is great for several reasons. First and foremost is that it is about a really compelling, amazing character named Dean Zimmer. I love this guy! This video is not a story in the narrative sense, it is more of a profile piece. But it holds my attention regardless just because I want to know more about Dean. He is a true inspiration.
I think the filmmakers did a good job of capturing Dean’s passion and intensity with the slow-mo jam out scene, where they matched action from many different angles of Dean as he played the drums.
Usually I don’t like to be able to hear the interviewer’s voice, but in this video it didn’t really bother me. I think because the interview didn’t seem super formal, it felt like I was just listening to someone’s conversation.
