"The day is not so very far away when all of these detailed descriptions of splicemaking and zoom lens focusing, when these words of advice on laboratory communications and projector setup will grow dim.  Handmade films will have to be seen in the new light of purely mindmade films.  Our most sophisticated light shows and brilliantly programmed computer films, and all that cunning and ingenious farrago called mixed media, or expanded cinema, will pale.  However, the most straightforward handmade home movies will, I believe, still be the most lucid contribution, for they will transcend invidious comparison with the technocratic artist's dream finally fulfilled.  So it is that we wait in the dawn of the age of the autocerebroscope."
