Filmmakers John Ainsworth and John Ireland are using the transcript of January's federal Perry vs. Schwarzenegger trial proceedings as a script for their newest work. The video series brings life to arguments for and against California's Proposition 8, which revoked the right of same-sex couples to marry in that state.
The filmmakers launched the project after the U.S. Supreme Court forced the judge in the Prop. 8 case to withdraw plans to air video of the trial on YouTube.
Cast members include Tess Harper, Adrienne Barbeau and Jack Laufer. The initial episodes have already been posted to www.MarriageTrial.com.
