Monko Goes To Hollywood

3D side by side (also in 2D)

Monko Goes To Hollywood was my thesis film. It is about an organ grinder’s monkey who seeks stardom in the new “talkies” of Hollywood.

The thesis film was actually shot on 16mm film on a computerized Oxberry camera. That thing was a beast! I can still remember the smells, sounds and heat of the room.

In later years I scanned in and digitized all of the artwork. I then re-edited it and updated the soundtrack. I didn’t have the rights to the music and sounds I originally used. I also converted it into Stereoscopic 3D since that is a hobby of mine.
