Crazy Monkey is a series of spots made for MTV to go between music videos. The team behind Crazy Monkey first made them in the hope of MTV just airing them at least once, and thus staking the South African flag on the airwaves of the world's music channel.

Crazy Monkey is made up of Trevor Clarence, Brendan Jack, Gavin Williams and Brett Goldin. The group started by having fun with a video camera and making fun of extreme culture.

After success in South Africa, Crazy Monkey was soon picked up by all the MTV regions in Europe, Canada, South America, Australia and Asia. They even dubbed the spots into German. It wasn't long before MTV commissioned more spots, and even flew the guys to London to shoot some Crazy Monkey in the UK.

There have been entire weekends on MTV in the UK, Canada and Scandinavia that have been devoted to Crazy Monkey. One fan, a Canadian wrestler, changed his name to Trevor Clarence after one of the shows creators.

Crazy Monkey teamed up with producers Ronnie Apteker and Tendeka Matatu for their first feature film, Straight Outta Benoni.

Brett Goldin murder

On 17 April 2006, the body of Brett Goldin and friend Richard Bloom were found in a field next to the M5 freeway to Klipfontein Road in Mowbray. They had been shot in cold blood and had had various items of clothing removed in an apparent gang related incident. The perpetrators were caught. [1]

Crazy Monkey, Louisville KY film company

Crazy Monkey, LLC was a film production company incorporated in Louisville, KY in August, 2000 3. It was founded by Chad Thomas and Doug Clark. A planned 2001 production was scapped; six long years would pass before Crazy Monkey would release their first film.

"Crazy Monkey presents a Prehensile Tale: Fashionably Dead" was created for the 2007 Louisville division of the 48 Hour Film Project 4. The short film was written and directed by Chad Thomas, shot by Russel Willoughby, and edited by Mike McKune. It starred Alma Roberts, Nick Goins, Jason Bradley, Kate Holland, Bill Allen, Stephanie Clark, Tyshaun Miles, Rocko Jerome, and David Carrier. It screened at Louisville's Village 8 Theatres on July 28, 2007.

Crazy Monkey regrouped the following summer for their second film and second entry in the 48 Hour Film Project. "Crazy Monkey presents a Prehensile Tale: Hootenanny" featured a cast and crew of over twenty and starred Stephanie Clark, Rocko Jerome, and Tyshaun Miles. It screened at Village 8 Theatres on July 23, 2008 and went on to win "Best Use of Genre" at the awards ceremony.

Following the production of "Hootenanny", Chad Thomas became aware of the other film team using the name Crazy Monkey. Because the other Crazy Monkey was selling a double DVD of a feature film, Mr. Thomas chose to change the name of his production company from "Crazy Monkey" to "Just in Time Films."

Just in Time Films released the short films "DARKSIDERS" in October 2008, "DARKSIDERS episode 2" in November 2008, and "The Third Sister: A Universal" in April 2009.
