Great story, great documentary short, Battle of the Drumlines from Show Love founder Peter Crosby

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

Battle of the Drumlines is a great story, a niche piece of human interest that would otherwise stay close to its source and only inspire those fortunate enough to witness its players in action. Peter Crosby’s documentary, produced by Show Love, follows the entrants to the Brooklyn Steppers Marching Band’s annual Battle of the Drumline event, bringing to light the engaging, rhythm heavy scene that is largely played out in the US South.

The film itself is a real piece of work and is edited with a deft rhythm that has everything to do with the community and synchronicity of its subjects. Insight and interest and a musical education to boot.
