This is actually test footage given form and some semblance of meaning. As the title suggests, this is generally about confronting yourself and the restless, selfish and lazy "Monkey Mind", but in a basic, simple and visual way.
You may be forgiven in thinking that this is some kind of Matrix Reloaded homage; and while I did take notes on the "Super Burly Brawl" scene, I did not wish to rely on any animation or CGI, nor do I have access to endless supplies of performers that all looked the same. Plus, I don't really like that scene very much.
This film was a huge journey for me, as the film has altered drastically and my ideas have changed, and I have changed with it. This is a summer project for University, so I also had time constraints to think of, as well as the obstacles that daily life continually throws our way. It has also been a learning curve for many reasons: While the end product may not be much to look at, this has been an excellent first step.
As a final note, this video was exported into Quicktime using H.264 at a rate of 24 fps. This to make the file size smaller while still retaining enough picture quality so it can be watched over the internet.
I do not in any way own the music or sound clips used; the respective authors are credited in the video. Other than that, everything else is done entirely by me (and it shows).
