Another Version of the Truth: The Gift

Back in January 2009 we pointed you to some 400GB of raw HD footage captured during Nine Inch Nails' 2008 Lights In The Sky tour.

A year on and things have come along more than anyone could have imagined.

Fans have edited thousands of videos from the footage, assembled their own DVDs and live albums, even held theatrical screenings of their creations. And now, the ambitious and well-organised group known as This One Is On Us (remember this) have released their massive, highly-anticipated creation, Another Version of the Truth: The Gift.

Created by a team of dozens of NIN fans spanning the entire globe have pooled their efforts to create this professional-quality 1080p 5.1 concert film, and it has been released on just about every format from Blu-ray to DVD, iPod to YouTube.

That something of this scale was produced entirely by fans, on their own time, purely for the sake of giving something back, is absolutely unprecedented. You can read all about the project and find all the download links here, or watch it immediately on YouTube here. Theatrical screenings are already being organised, you can find more info about those here.
