David Cook worked with Darren Wheeling to create Robot Bumblebee: Back Beyond Keon. Written by David Cook. 1993. (I love the Robot Bumblebee series, and this one is exceptional.) Ron is after Keon, so Robot Bumblebee and friends have to help him get back to the past. Linda Cook and Jonathan Perry-Giles did voices. David was age 8, and this number 3 in the series. Master tape.

A collection of animation tests and titles done with the Pansophic system (IMB AT 286) and a BCD frame controller. Nothing spectacular, but shows some very early 3-D computer animation experiments. You can tell we were learning about rotating things on each axis, learning about texture maps, and figuring out how to use timelines. 1990

Michael Jackson stopped by the museum for an official visit (BAD era), and staff captured his time in the U-TV interactive television studio. Not terribly interesting, but he poses with museum director Ann Lewin, MediaWorks director Stan Woodward, video producer Jesse Vaughn, and others while a Fairlight operator plays with effects. For some reason, this tape was made into a loop, and repeats for quite a while. Weâll spare you the full effect. April 4th 1990. He gave us all LA Gear shoes, btw.
