He continued with piano before a move to Vancouver Island in his early teens introduced him to drums. The effect was instant and addictive: rhythm moved from a head game to a total body experience. His need to know more led him from Vancouver to Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles (where he studied at Musician’s Institute), Australia…anywhere he could study, perform or record music. To support his drum habit, he opened a multimedia production studio on Vancouver Island where he produced, recorded and taught musicians and drummers. To convey the amazingly diverse world of rhythm to his students, he began putting together a drum book, but his research into world beats was so compelling he soon began an even more ambitious project: “Gimme the Beat”, a documentary tracing the origin and development of various rhythms through the passion and performance of master beat makers around the world.   Gillian Chandler: Gillian Chandler was born and raised on beautiful Vancouver Island. She was dancing, singing, and performing from a young age, and has never had an issue with taking center stage. From starting out in radio and broadcasting, shifting to the world of voice-over, and then accidentally landing on-camera for Gimme the Beat, things have always played out differently than imagined. Good thing she never had a plan to begin with! Along this adventure, Gillian has reached into the hearts and minds behind the artists, musicians, professors, scientists, and cultures she’s been fortunate enough to share space with, and for her, this project can be summed up as drums being the way that souls of all shapes and sizes communicate. She’s proud to help amplify voices that might not always be heard, shine a spotlight on histories that go unmentioned, and connect in an emotional and empathetic way, all while talking about an experience as universal as breathing… Rhythm. Some Things That Came Up:  -Shooting and gathering footage for 4 years -Erik is a drummer -Gil was transitioning into being an imaging producer for radio -Rhythm is a reminder that we are all connected -Gil has empathic tendencies which helps her with interviewing -Erik's production technique is lean and mean -Using metadata for organization -It's not a drum doc, it's a people doc about drums -Stinker interview subjects -Getting female subjects -Devoting your time to your passion -No borders, but roots -   www.gimmethebeatdoc.com @gimmethebeatdoc @gillianmchandler   The Rich Redmond Show is about all things music, motivation and success.
