Throughout 1999, Mark Tapio Kines, Melanie Lynskey and Wil Wheaton were interviewed for various American TV programs. These are just short clips from longer segments featured on the shows themselves. Please note that because of the Quicktime compression, the audio makes us all sound like we have lisps. We don't.

CNET screenshot
CNET Central, first airdate June 5, 1999 on the USA Network and Sci Fi Channel. Mark interviewed at home, Mel interviewed at the Sci Fi Channel offices in West Hollywood. Note the clever editing, where it sounds like everybody who invested in the film was a fan of Melanie Lynskey! Play Quicktime movie

Net Cafe screenshot
Net Cafe, first airdate July 2, 1999 on PBS. Mark interviewed at an Internet Cafe in San Francisco. There is a mention of "sites for new films" - these sites don't exist anymore; I've gathered all my films under the umbrella of my Cassava Films site. Play Quicktime movie

2014 UPDATE: This was the only TV segment I could still find online in some format, so I uploaded the whole interview to YouTube. You can watch it here.

Wild Wild Web screenshot
Wild Wild Web, first airdate July 17, 1999 on CBS. Mark, Mel and Wil interviewed in and around Mark's house. Nice close-ups! Play Quicktime movie

Tech TV screenshot
Internet Tonight, first airdate October 8, 1999 on ZDTV (which, much later, became G4). A long-haired Mark interviewed at home. No Quicktime clip of the segment, alas. This one has vanished into the mists of time.
