Burroughs wrote the story and narrates the film; he also appears in live-action footage at the beginning and end of the film. The film was produced by Francis Ford Coppola.

Another cool project from Mike Merrill – this video titled “OK To Go” is a compilation of hyper space scenes from assorted movies.
From the description:
Part of the thing which is so appealing about Hyper Space scenes in films is the idea that something fantastic and unknown lies at the end of them. In fact, here are the primary uses of Warp Speed/ Hyper Space as plot device:
A) Tunnel to unknown.
B) Escape from danger via total oblivion.
Both represent a kind of inversion, or temporary lifting, of the accepted order.
