For The Meaning of Life's difficult sunset scene, a complicated network of moving colors on sticks are used to subtly change the lighting throughout the entire sequence. At right is a page of notes for slowly maneuvering each color as the scene plays out beneath the camera.

Shooting outer space the old fashioned way.. one of several "pinhole" star fields is prepped for one of several multiple-exposure composites of the great beyond..

With enough star fields laying around, a number of galaxies and outer space shots can be improvised and literally put together on the spot - a pair of improvised shots were sketched out here in Don's rough camera notes.
