Production note(excerpted)
"In 1970, I received the award for excellence with my film, “The Beginning of Life”. Before that, a science film had never won a prize in Arts Festival. Then, my producer told me “Make a film that you will be able to win a prize again in the art festival”, but the budget of 3 million yen offered by The Ministry of Education, Science and Culture will be run out with the 35mm camera. I promised to my producer that, at the very best, I would manage with 6 million yen. This is how I started making this film."

"One month after that I had finished the initial writing of the script, the production committee of the Agency for Cultural Affairs called me. I brought the second writing, but they told me that it was not necessary. There was a name tag on which my name was written as “Reference, Junichiro Takeda”, and I was raising my hand, but no one had let me speak. During that one month before they called me, I wanted to improve my script and I couldn’t just wait. So I revised the script and distribute it to them, but they didn’t even try to see the new one. They all had put remarks with a red pencil on my initial writing and each of them could only explain the ideas based on their remarks. Each of them talked 30 minutes! But anyway, it was a lot of fun to even see them because they were famed masters and I had never met them before.
I was invited just as a reference. So, I was not allowed to make mention until I was asked “What do you think about it, Takeda?” Professor Yoshida also said many things every time, but nobody was listening. This was because he was also “Reference, Toshihide Yoshida.”
We have decided to track and put together the results from the study of Professor Yoshida. The intellectuals agreed to this and, finally, the story was closer to the second writing. "
