Sci-Fi Fantasy Fused with Specialist Factual History in Historical Documentary
Plazma Design created an archive of realistic images and film for the History Channel's 'Great Martian War' program
The Great Martian War tells the story of the events and horrors of 1913-17, when Humankind was pitted against a savage Alien invasion. Fusing sci-fi fantasy and specialist factual history, the History Channel program explores the real-world tragedies of World War One with powerful and detailed parallels.
Plazma Design created an archive of realistic images and film for the show, which combines period footage with state-of-the-art special effects and interviews with aging veterans. The Great Martian War features the devastation of Western Europe where a rag-tag alliance digs in against monstrous Alien war-machines, the political battle for the White House, the skies of central London where allied bi-planes do battle with an Alien Tripod, and the War’s catastrophic final act in which the Allies must decide if launching an untested secret weapon is worth risking the lives of millions.
