Hi, We're Indy Neidell and Spartacus Olsson. together we started The Great War, the first ever global real time interactive documentary. Now we've set off on a new adventure to make even more awesome historical content, even while Indy continues with The Great War.

Now, many of you have asked for a WWII series... you have been heard.
WW2 in real time, week by week starts on September 1, 2018            

To realise that project we will be working with a whole bunch of other creators - you can find out who on the  WW2 YouTube channel.

BUT WHO ARE INDY AND SPARTACUS?                                                     
Indy is a historian, actor, and professional musician that loves telling complex stories in his unique, fascinating, and engaging way. Spartacus is a film and video producer, writer, and director that has been studying history fanatically since he was seven years old (a long time ago). Indy and Sparty are both descendants of Charlemagne King of the Franks and Nefertiti Queen of Ancient Egypt.

In short: we're just two guys that are fantastically passionate about writing and making videos about the world's fascinating past.

WHAT KIND OF CONTENT WILL YOU SEE ON TIMEGHOST?               
We launched TimeGhost in 2017 with The Cuban Missile Crisis. Right now we're making "Between-2-Wars" a 50+ episode weekly show about the interwar period from 1919 to 1939 in preparation for WW2. And there will be more stuff about other events in history, told in detail as they developed, in the order and time they happened.

That ls what we are mainly about - chronological documentaries that go into more debt and detail than most other shows in the historical genre. We make content that focuses on the best available facts, and we try our best to not be skewed or biased, and tell the story from all perspectives. Most importantly, we do it together with you - TimeGhost is interactive, engaging, and cooperative.

In short: we’ll be making history together with you. Literally making history.

WHERE IS TIMEGHOST?                                                                                 
You'll be able to see our content on  YouTubeFacebook, timeghost.tv, and other platforms as they develop. To meet the rest fo the community and interact directly with Indy and Sparty, you can go to the TimeGhost Army Forum. As a paying TimeGhost Army member you'll get special access to our content so that you can see it without ads and before it goes public.

In short: We'll be investing a lot of time, effort, and money to bring you the coolest possible history-based video content.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?                                                                 

One of the most important reasons for starting TimeGhost is that we want to make content together with you- we mean literally “make content with you”. We've created lots of content in the past and know how rewarding it is when we can involve our audience and our fans in the creative process. Now we want to take that to the next level.

Every quarter starting Q4 2018 we will launch a new format that you- our patrons and fans- get to choose. You get a chance to Set the TimeGhost Clock to the time and place in history you want us to visit. Our community will nominate program ideas and then vote for the one that we’ll produce in the Set the TimeGhost Clock vote. We will also give you the opportunity to get involved in the creative process itself, to discuss, debate, and develop the historical content of the future.

We want you to join our groups and forums, and come visit us in the studio to work together with us on our shared passion. Every quarter we will organize The TimeGhost Haunt - a get together where you can travel back into the past together with us and other virtual time travellers. You can visit in person or by video conference. Of course we'll also share with you our passion for good drink and food at those events - after all history is full of great meals and parties! Depending on your level of patronage, you can gain access to our patrons only content, functions, and events through our rewards system. You can read more about our rewards below and in our rewards section on this page.

In short: We want you to come join us to make history, to truly join us in making history.

 WHAT WILL WE DO WITH YOUR MONEY?                                                                                       
We're currently on a weekly publishing schedule, but our real aim is to bring you daily content in the form of videos, articles, and images. To do that we'll be putting together a team of writers, editors, and producers that are just as passionate about history as we are.

We’re creating a studio and production facility in a beautiful location in the Bavarian countryside - hopefully some of you will be able to come visit us and take part in the creative process.

To make content that meets your expectations and creates a great viewing experience, we need to acquire the rights to archival material. Then we'll be cooperating with some of the world's best and richest content libraries so that you can truly see history come to life again.

In short: it's a huge endeavor and to be able to do it right we want to do it together with you. We're extremely grateful for your participation so that we can continue bringing you high quality, interactive, history-based documentaries.

Thank you for joining us!

Studio and Stability
At the moment Spartacus and Indy are doing this more or less on their own, with Astrid helping out with administrative stuff. Now and then we're paying for some support to edit a few videos out of our own pocket and we're filming in Sparty's living room. Some of you have noticed the echo and that were not on schedule with... well with anything to be honest. With this money we can set up our studio, which first of all helps with video and sound quality, but also enables us to work more efficiently to get closer to a reliable schedule. More than anything we can finally deliver on our rewards on time.
