Just can't get the staff these days...
I'm sure I once worked with this cameraman. Or maybe it's just that I have endured people's home movies that looked like this.

BBC - Earth News - Movie made by chimpanzees to be broadcast on television


The world's first film shot entirely by chimpanzees is to be broadcast by the BBC as part of a natural history documentary.

Oh, I don't know...that pan starting at :37 wasn't half bad. :)

Now they just need some ape in there directing it, and a few monkies doing the editing, and bing, the "Blair Primate Project" is born :-)

So how long before Primates start making their own camera stabilizers and arguing about how much better it would have been if they had been allowed to use their DOF adaptor made from a banana peel?

That was more interesting and more thoughtfully shot than a lot of things on youtube!

Gorilla filmmaking!

I'm not too late for that, am I? It's going on a week since I first saw this, and I know chimps aren't gorillas, but come on, you don't get a chance like this every day.

Slated for production in 2011, When Hairy Met Sally.

One small step for evolution...one giant leap toward the craigslist video services section.
