Jane Goodall on the Amazing Story of 'Chimpanzee'

4/19/2012 8:33 AM Eastern

Fast Company's Co.Create speaks to legendary researcher Jane Goodall who was an advisor on Disneynature's documentary, Chimpanzee, about the unusual circumstances surrounding an alpha male who adopts an orphaned chimp.

Explains Goodall about the production, "You’re in difficult terrain or the forest struggling with heavy equipment, and chimps move very fast. From a distance, they look like black objects against a white sky, and you can’t see them at all if they’re close to you. Then there are the dreadful insects and snakes and weather. It was really tough for this film team."
