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

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

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?

Slightly longer than it takes the director to scream and rant at the talent. :-P
