Unimonk the Experimental Monkey demonstrates Newton’s laws of motion.
No animals were harmed in the making of this film. Apart from one of the students, who had an apple dropped on her head.
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.
