Here's a question for you: What was the first ever video game? https://t.co/thF7Zwh1z6

@archivedproject A complete history might be a little ambitious, but perhaps I could focus on an era. I would like to talk more about scene-related stuff (copy protection/crackers in particular)

You couldn't tell by looking, but this was probably the hardest shot in Flatline: the 1987 SCA virus running on authentic Amiga hardware. It only triggers after 15 successful disk infections - so I decided to modify the virus a little for my needs.

@felix_warren There will be more Amiga stuff in the future. In the meantime, you may enjoy DOOMED: https://t.co/NFfXz1DDPN - a video I did about the Amiga's attempt to stay relevant in the face of early FPS games.

Filming a CRT is challenging, to say the least - not only do you have to lock the shutter to the 50Hz refresh, you have to contend with glare (no lights in the front 90° arc) - and worst of all, moiré (as seen here). Solution is to defocus slightly - but this means a soft image.

Here's the 7D in action. Main lenses used were: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4 L, EF-S f/2.8 60mm Macro, f/2.8 100mm IS Macro L.

Everything was filmed in my garage, with pretty much the same setup I've used since 'Behind The Lines'. 3 RGB LED spotlights (with an occasional softbox for white light), and my Canon EOS 7D.

The video subtitle came later - it's actually a reference to a quote (mistakenly) attributed to lead Amiga designer Jay Miner. He never said it, it's a quote from his obituary. But it's nevertheless a good assessment of the Amiga's early years.

Transform the Amiga 'tick' logo into something resembling an EKG and there - you have an identity. Not as good as 'Doomed' was, but you work with what you have!

The script was finished mid-August, and it was around then that I finally decided on a title: 'Flatline'. I wanted something that conveyed the trouble the Amiga had post-launch, and something that could work as an identity for the video.
