    Technical notes:
    Video source material has been edited and color
    processed through a Sandin Analog Image
    Processor. Computer graphics were generated on
    a Datamax UV-1 and keyed over video using
    a standard TV special effects generator. Compressed
    frame inserts were actually kinescopes: TV monitor
    wiped into the video using a border wipe effect.
