Love Monkey is the tail of one man's struggle to find love and himself. Along the way he gets involved in an all female traveling circus, goes diving in Thailand, sinks the Titanic, devises a system of personality classification based on Hobitsand Elves, looses a tooth and winds up vaccuming miles and miles of plush red carpet.
In order to match the multi-character, fast changing and dense text of this comical exploration of love, the video design needed to change as quickly as the performer. Using front and rear projection and a specially designed curtain system, imagery is used to provide both context and ambience for this cinematic stand-up.
