Unimonk the Experimental Monkey demonstrates Newton’s laws of motion.

Director's Notes:

No animals were harmed in the making of this film. Apart from one of the students, who had an apple dropped on her head.

SciCast Notes:

This is extremely clear and well-planned, and for once I’m wholly in favour of putting in the out-takes. It’s easy for things you find funny while you’re filming to look plain dull when they’re seen by someone else, months later, but these are well-chosen, and help lighten up an otherwise straight film.

It’s great work. I like the approach to doing captions, too — don’t waste time with fiddly software, just write what you want on a piece of paper and point the camera at that. Works a treat.
