  • Our initial goal was to combine live action footage and animation with a piece of the evolving soundtrack -- The Labyrinth.

    The live action "Bert Base Jump" footage was shot in New Mexico and ftp'ed (sent over the internet) to Fort Washington, Pennsylvania (The Fort). The soundtrack music was converted to wav files in Blue Bell, PA and then ftp'ed to The Fort. From there the pieces were ftp'ed to Philadelphia where they were combined and shipped back to The Fort. The entire process, from getting people on-line to "burning rom", took one year. Along the way, we were forced to rely on floppies, cdrom and snailmail. But, despite the overwhelming odds, we were able to pass through the barriers and produce the first ever "made by the internet and for the internet" multimedia production.

    The final leg of berthole.avi's journey will be through the 'net, and to your eye's and ears. We hope you enjoy it... we hope it inspires you to do something.
