From the article:

Quote
If you give a million monkeys a million typewriters and a million years to write, one of them will eventually type Shakespeare. But if you give a million monkeys a million movie cameras and a million years to film, will one of them eventually produce Citizen Kane?

It's that kind of thinking that led BBC producer John Capener to create The Chimpcam Project. The experiment, which is being turned into a documentary special set to air on BBC2, saw a dozen chimpanzees with rugged, custom-made cameras filming their own home movies over the course of 18 months. Researcher Betsy Herrelko noted that the chimps seemed to understand the filming process. As long as the monitor on the camera worked, the chimps could make the correlation between what they were pointing the camera at, and what was being shown on the viewscreen.


Honestly it's an interesting idea.  The article shows some footage that the chimps took.  It's like Cloverfield all over again.  It could be interesting.  What do you guys think?

Not so sure filmmaking is something you want to monkey around with.

Well that would explain a lot about Cloverfield. It was shot by monkeys.

I'm afraid the chimps' endeavor would be more like 2 Girls 1 Cup than Citizen Kane.   What with all the flinging...

This could be very embarassing for some human film makers.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
