    Ah yes… that is a stunning piece of precision design. Did you read any of the newspaper articles about the filming of the sequence, and how it took over 600 takes? I have a nice high-res Quicktime version of the movie (about 12 MB) if you want a copy. I’m never going to delete that file!

      Yah, I read about how the filmed it. Just amazing. A high-res of the movie would be kickass… How can I get it?

        The compression level on the Quicktime version is a lot lower than the Flash animations I’ve seen, so you don’t get as much chunkiness when you scale it up. I think the frame rate is also faster. Anyway, let me know when you’ve successfully grabbed it.
