I've got an idea for a new video for our YouTube channel that I'd like your help with. The concept is basically a discussion about the history of the Grail Diary prop. I'm planning on going through this prop in such a way that both novices and old timers can get something from the video. Here are the main points I'm planning on discussing:

• Concept of the original prop
• Sources used (source books, props from other films, historic inserts, etc)
• Assembly and distressing
• Variation between hero and B props
• Replicating

What I'd like from you guys is recommendations of things to include as well as any questions you might have that you'd like covered. If you have a question and would like to be quoted, let me know the name you'd like used (real name or screen name, etc). Feel free to PM me if you'd prefer.

I'll definitely be talking about Club Obi Wan and the RPF as a reference for those wanting to make their own props and will be plugging these communities in general.

Any ideas for this, let me know either as a posted reply, PM or e-mail. Any help would be appreciated. We really want to make this a great video, so don't want to overlook anything that should be included.

Kind regards,
Indy Magnoli

I’d be fascinated to hear about your research into the grail diary. I’ve subscribed to your channel in preparation :)

As far as questions go I guess most of my thoughts focus on the replication… standard stuff that I’m sure you’d cover regarding paper and weathering.

One thought that struck me was the marbling on the inside of the cover. If attempting to replicate the book, do you do that yourself or do you acquire marbled sheets from somewhere? I’m sure if I used the RPF search function the answer would be available, but it might be an interesting aside for the video.

I cannot wait to see this. :) The Grail diary is one of my favorite props of all time. Would love to hear more about the different versions of the prop used on screen, and all of the points you already outlined for the video. Thank you for doing this!

So excited for this! Anything that documents the original sources and information about the creation of the actual prop itself would be fascinating.

Starting the video with YOUR relationship and obsession with the prop would be a great jumping off point and who you reached out to over the years to gather information. That in itself could be it's own video honestly.

Really excited to see where this goes!
