He Reinvented What it Means to Be Human
Out-of-body expert and founder of The Monroe Institute®, Robert A. Monroe, is celebrated in this animated short by filmmaker Mike George.
Monroe's birthday on October 30, 2015, marked his 100th year.
Those familiar with Monroe will recognize Mike George's playful yet subtly powerful and poignantly accurate depictions of Bob Monroe. His circa 1970s sound studio where magic was made. The loving and creative synergy with his wife Nancy Penn. His travels in consciousness. The construction of The Monroe Institute in Virginia. The ubiquitous yellow legal pads filled with ideas. The twinkle in his eye.
Mike George's device of indicating posthumously-added construction at TMI through its appearance and disappearance on the screen is clever and charming.
