Walkabout Films, is a newly launched production house by Director Navzar Eranee.
The name 'Walkabout' for his company came from his drive for exploration and a craving for open roads that lead to god-knows-where. 'Itchy feet', he called it. We decided to visually represent exploration while giving the brand its identity.
Hence, the Space Monkey.
A tribute to the energetic, active primate that was first chosen for space exploration. It was not merely a substitute for a human being - there were specific reasons why a monkey was chosen to go out there, into the unknown, and see and do things never done before. Although extremely territorial, monkeys are constantly on the move, making it very hard to find them in one place. As human beings' closest living relative in the animal kingdom, we felt that the imagery of the space monkey embodies all the values that are at the core of Walkabout Films - a spirit of discovery, a love for experimentation, and above all, itchy feet.
