Oh, with Katrina and my trip to Asia, this completely slipped my mind. I was interviewed regarding The Electric Company, and my comments were published in Newsday. I said a heck of a lot more, but the quote Willow chose sums up my thoughts on the whole release nicely.
The geek who bought the only remaining Scanimate analogue TV animation machine recently sent me a copy of his Scanimate DVD-1, a fascinating history of TV graphics choc-a-bloc full of logos, analogue synthesis, and quite a few Electric Company demo reels. It’s even got the opening to the show that was only used for the pilot, along with the original theme music in a different arrangement! Fascinating stuff, though I wish there was more detail on the machine’s inner workings itself. Highly recommended.
