SAN FRANCISCO -- The U.S. Supreme Court's camera blackout of the trial over same-sex marriage in California didn't faze two Los Angeles filmmakers, who - with the help of transcripts, bloggers and a corps of professional actors - have launched its re-enactment on YouTube.
'We want all Americans to have a chance to judge for themselves, based on the evidence that was presented,' John Ireland said Monday after the first of 12 scheduled 'episodes,' each covering a day of the trial, made its Internet debut.
The cast includes such Hollywood talents as Tess Harper and Adrienne Barbeau.
Testimony in the trial ended Wednesday in San Francisco before Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker, who is expected to hear closing arguments next month. At stake is the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the November 2008 initiative that defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
