Pictures from the Brainbox: A Weekly Dose of Indie Animation - 'Monkey Love Experiments'

Every Tuesday, Chris Robinson digests and dissects (relatively) new indie animation short films. Today: Monkey Love Experiments.

'Monkey Love Experiments' by Ainslie Henderson and Will Anderson


Using a mix of 3D computer, live action and stop motion puppets, Henderson (who also made the stunning music video, Moving On) and Anderson have created a highly original and poignant film that looks like it was found on the shelf of a 1960s puppet animation studio in the Soviet Union.  It’s got delusions, disappointment, heartbreak, space travel and a very unfortunate monkey.
