The Drum Lesson. A very short film by Sean Hayes.

My first foray into filmmaking. Shot with a Canon PowerShot G9 and edited with Adobe Premier Pro, the short film follows the trials and tribulations of my young son, Aidan, as he tries to master the art of making noise. I decided to shoot in B&W to give the proceedings a documentary feel, reminiscent of the “Cinéma vérité” style of filmmaking. A bit ropey around the edges – especially the sound quality – but hopefully it’s still worth a viewing.
