Swan's Video Surveillance Center : Control Room

Yes, your dreams have come true!

From this page, you can enter our Scene-by-Scene exploration of Phantom of the Paradise, in which we travel sequentially through the film, discussing a couple hundred shots in obsessive/compulsive detail. We've divided the film up into six sections. You can go from beginning to end, or jump straight to your favorite part of the movie by choosing the appropriate screen from Swan's Video Surveillance Center below.
By the way... we know some of you haven't signed contracts in blood, and therefore aren't staying young forever. If you're using a PC and the print is too small for your aging eyes to read comfortably, you can hold down the Control key on your keyboard while spinning the scroll wheel on your mouse to make things larger or smaller. If you don't have a scroll wheel, you can press "+" or "-" on your keyboard while holding the control key to do the same thing.  
If you're on a Mac, everything's "intuitive," so we don't need to tell you how to do it, right?
