A DIFFERENT DRUMMER: CELEBRATING ECCENTRICS
D: John Zaritsky | Canada | 2014 | 86 min | Toronto Premiere
Oscar-winning director John Zaritsky celebrates eccentrics in this light-hearted but affectionate look at non-conformists—from a Utah cave dweller who hasn’t used money in 12 years to a beloved Vancouver psychic often seen with her pet duck in a buggy.
Produced by Real to Reel Productions with K.B. Productions.
Nina Beveridge project managed and designed the companion website www.celebratingeccentrics.com, working with Producer/Writer Bill Spahic, Producer Anne Pick, Programmers Chris Monson and Michael Tucker and Digital Strategist Kadon Douglas. The whimsical website features A Name Game, An Eccentricity Quiz and a blog called “The Dr. Is In” which answers questions about eccentricity and is authored by an international specialist on eccentricity Dr. David Weeks.
