Pressing Notes

Three films from John Whitney, an early pioneer of computer animation and motion graphics. Short films were very likely Arabesque, Matrix III and Matrix I. There is no evidence this title was ever produced by DiscoVision. It has never been identified as a dead side or shown up in collector's hands as a "produced" title. Still, an "inventory report" from July 1979 indicates 15 copies were in the Atlanta warehouse, but no copies had shipped to retailers. I take this report with a whole spoonful of salt.

Release History

These three short films were issued in a larger collection of John Whitney programs under the "Visual Pathfinders" series, released by Pioneer Special Interests.
