The face remains deathly still other than the occasional blink or involuntary bat of his eyelash. The film is slowed down to about 24-frames per-second to capture these slight movements a bit better, but other than this and the choppy fade-in’s and out’s at the beginning and end respectively, nothing changes throughout the film.

Screen One is a British television anthology drama series, produced by the BBC and transmitted on BBC1 between 1989 and 1993. Following the demise of the BBC's Play for Today which ran from 1970 to 1984, producer Kenneth Trodd was asked to formulate a new series of one-off television dramas. However, while Play for Today's style had often been a largely studio-based form of theatre on television, the new series was to follow the lead taken by Channel Four's television films many of which had been released in cinemas. The result was Screen Two which ran from 1985 to 1994 on BBC2. In 1989 the Screen One strand began broadcasting on the more mainstream BBC1. The third series' A Question of Attribution adapted from the Alan Bennett play won the 1992 BAFTA TV award for Best Single Drama and Prunella Scales was nominated for Best Actress. From the fifth series A Foreign Field starring Alec Guinness, Lauren Bacall and Jeanne Moreau and Wide-Eyed and Legless saw a cinema release. Wide-Eyed and Legless starring Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent was renamed The Wedding Gift in America. Screen One attracted many names familiar to television and film audiences including Alfred Molina, Sean Bean, David Thewlis, Ray Winstone, Alan Bates, Judi Dench, James Fox, Keith Allen, Bob Peck, Alun Armstrong, Marina Sirtis, David Jason, Brenda Blethyn, James Bolam, Adrian Edmonson, Alison Steadman, Timothy West, Clive Russell and Janet McTeer.

Repeat episodes continued to air until March 25, 2005 when its replacement program, Attack of the Show! began 3 days later on March 28, 2005.

Drew Carey's Green Screen Show is an improvisational comedy television series that aired in the fall of 2004 on The WB Television Network, and the fall of 2005 on Comedy Central. The show was hosted by Drew Carey, and was somewhat a follow-up to the show he formerly hosted, Whose Line Is It Anyway?. The distinguishing feature of the show was that the improv games were performed in front of a "green screen", with animation, music and sound effects inserted in post-production. The show was otherwise very similar to Whose Line? and featured many of the same performers and games. On an appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien when "Green Screen" premiered, Carey claimed that he got the idea during the Whose Line? game "Moving people" when he thought how funny it would be if you could not see the people manipulating the players. The show's theme song was La Trampa, performed by Tonino Carotone and Manu Chao and the show's underscore was composed by Michael A. Levine.
Screen Two was a British television anthology drama series, produced by the BBC and transmitted on BBC1 from 1985 to 1994. Following the demise of the BBC's Play for Today which ran from 1970 to 1984, producer Kenneth Trodd was asked to formulate a new series of one-off television dramas. However, while Play For Today's style had been a largely studio based form of theatre on television, the new series was shot entirely on film. This was an attempt by the BBC to repeat the success of Channel Four's television films, many of which had been released in cinemas. From 1989 to 1993 a companion series, Screen One, was broadcast on the more mainstream BBC1. After almost a decade Screen Two came to an end as the BBC moved it’s attentions away from expensive single dramas and concentrated production on series and serials instead.

Behind the Screen is an American late-night weekly serial which aired on CBS from October 9, 1981 to January 8, 1982. It was created by David Jacobs for CBS, which wanted to experiment with late night programming as a counterpoint to ABC and NBC's more successful efforts at that time of night. Drawing upon his experience with the prime-time serials, Behind the Screen was a dramatization of the goings-on at a fictional TV soap opera called Generations. This was not the first attempt to explore the concept of a "soap within a soap" as radio soaps had used the idea as far as back as the 1940s, and Ryan's Hope had used the idea for a story in the early 1980s. It premiered as an hour-long special, and regular episodes were 30 minutes. The show focused on the beautiful young star of Generations, Janie-Claire Willow, who was a pawn in a power struggle between her wheelchair-using mother Zina, her powerful agent Evan, and her show's leading man, Brian. The show's early pacing was a bit meandering and had problems finding an audience. The show seemed to be finding its focus, helped by stronger writing by Ronnie Wencker-Konner, when it was canceled after only 3 months on the air. The last episode concerned a backstage party where starlet Joyce Daniels was poisoned. Suspicion quickly fell on Lynette Porter. In a bit of levity, Michele Lee appeared as herself, playing a guest at the party; when questioned by police, she was mistakenly identified by the cops as Mary Tyler Moore.
Your Screen Test is an eight-week reality television series on the Rogers TV community channel in Ottawa, Ontario, which aired in 2007. Prospective contestants submit an audition tape or come into the Rogers TV studio to audition. Of those, ten people were selected to appear on the series. Viewers at home were then given an opportunity to vote for their favorite contestant. The top three vote getters made the cut, and the remaining seven contestants were chosen by the selection panel. Competitors chosen to participate compete in various challenges that highlight necessary TV skills - everything from preparation, interviewing, writing, ad-lib and dealing with a live audience. The winner receives their own four-episode television series, which aired in Fall 2007 on Rogers TV. Matt Demers was the first winner of the competition. His series of choice was Nighttime with Mr. Hollywood, a late-night talk show along the same lines as The Tonight Show and Late Show with David Letterman. It has not been determined if the show will continue on Rogers after the four scheduled episodes.
