Grindlebone Village Project

The Grindlebone Village project has been a long time in gestation.  For those of you who know the cast of characters that has made up the Greylight Theatre/Grindlebone Arts over the years, you know we have a history of pulling off bizarrely large, improbable projects seemingly out of nothing.  Over the years we have created theatre companies, renfairs, Burning Man style Raves, art shows, theatre tours, publishing houses, construction projects, role playing games, and a number of fairly toxic…See More

Greetings, your were inquiring about the Great Martian War video. I did some research as to the original author: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgZU6YxJ7b4

It is apparent the History Channel produced a two hour speculative history, with fake documentary. Rather interesting.

They used both real footage and reenactment for the WW1 footage... the rest, well, that was the fun part.
