Documentaries in the News, ChimpCam Edition

Sure, you can trace the physiological basis of editing to the fact that we see the world in blinks. That's no big surprise, when you realize that Chimps can edit.

Of course, first they need to settle a typical Producer / Director on-set squabble. You know how that goes.

Movie made by chimpanzees to be broadcast on television

On top of the box was a video screen that showed live images of whatever the camera was pointing at. Initially, the chimps were more interested in each other than the video technology, as two male chimps within the study group vied to become the alpha male, disrupting the experiment. But over time, some of the chimps learned how to select different videos to watch.
I'm just curious if they'll get the IMDB credit.
