Prop 8 Trial, The Reenactment

Walker, VaughnHeyck, Theodore John Ireland and John Ainsworth have completed the first day reenactment of Perry v. Schwarzenegger and posted it on YouTube. It isn't "Inherit the Wind" — in fact, so far the real thing was a bit more dramatic — but it's a noble effort to try to get some sense of what it was like in the courtroom after the Supreme Court nixed the idea of Internet streaming.

There's more to come, with Adrienne Barbeau and Arye Gross among those cast as some of the witnesses. Tess Harper plays plaintiff Sandy Stier.

Meanwhile, the documentary "8: The Mormon Proposition" debuted at Sundance with mixed reviews, but it has generated some condemnation from the Mormon church.
