Great film. I'm sure there are a few mockups in there. For instance,
towards the end at 17:23 there is a mockup of a console with a slim
white/black masthead.
I have a high-res copy of that photo, and here is a the lower right
corner detail enlarged:

You can see a chip out of the console panel that looks like particle
board, and there are no cutouts for the button 'inserts' - they appear
glued on.

(By the way - I'm looking for a red INTERRUPT insert, red STOP insert and
pearl POWER ON insert for my 360/40 console, if anyone can help :)
