This is mostly likely taken from the First Run Features DVD from December 2000 and I think itís Mr. Botesí first commentary track. He mostly comments on whatís on screen and just about never veers into territory not directly related to what youíre saying. He does point out that, even though this movie is a hoax, they do make a mistake. The first feature length movie was made in 1906, two years before Colin Mackenzieís. There are also a lot of silent bits. Mr. Botes doesnít seem too intent on overloading the viewer with information and is quite relaxed. He also says he most expensive shot took about 20% of their budget. He points out the locations and how they pulled off some of the effects. Itís an okay commentary but Iím glad itís only an hour.
