Film summary:
Neil Feather invents new musical instruments and sound making devices, frequently incorporating bicycle parts, bowling balls and sex toys. His inventions are then used in live performances and installations. Filmmaker Skizz Cyzyk’s observational documentary gives the audience a chance to spend some time with Neil, getting to know him, seeing him working, and watching his performances.

Skizz Cyzyk has been making D.I.Y. films since the early 80s. His documentary features include Sound Mechanic (about Neil Feather), Icepick To The Moon (about Rev. Fred Lane & Raudelunas), Hit & Stay (about anti-war activists; co-directed with Joe Tropea) and Freaks In Love (about Alice Donut; co-directed with David Koslowski). His short films include Managers Corner, Alfred Jarry & ‘Pataphysics, David Fair Is The King, and The French Toast Man (co-directed with Alix Tobey Southwick). He has made music videos for many artists, including Beach House, Young Fresh Fellows, and One Ring Zero.
