About the Quicktime version of First Screening
This streaming Quicktime version of First Screening is a screen capture of
the Applewin emulator version of First Screening.
Freeze-frames from the Quicktime do not always reflect the structure of bpNichol's
code. For instance, when playing Off-screen Romance, you can see frames
in the Quicktime. However, if you look at the source
code, you see that neither
FRED nor GINGER are ever cut up in bpNichol's code. ED was displayed, most
likely, when the computer was commanded to erase FRED from the screen and
did so one letter at a time. Then the screen capture
of the Quicktime occurred (the frame-rate is 15 fps).
Not that the discrepancy is a big deal. But it does bear on the issue of
authenticity. It is common to assume that a video would be, say, more authentic
