Here’s the very provocative and insightful Matthew Williams interviewing the Italian crop circle artist and author Francesco Grassi (http://www.francescograssi.com/) . If you really want to understand crop circles, drop your preconceptions about the mystery of crop circles and read Francesco’s book : https://www.amazon.com.au/d/CROP-CIRCLES-Signs-Intelligence-Encounters-ebook/B01NBN25CD/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1497314838&sr=8-9&keywords=Francesco+Grassi.
Francesco demonstrates very clearly and logically how modern crop circles have their roots with the famous Doug and Dave, who were inspired by the Tully saucer nest and how most of the tell tale signs of so called authenticity are flawed. He also demonstrates very clearly and precisely, how to make the most complex crop circles, in a way that befuddles even the so called experts !
From Francesco, “Crop circles are a giant circular stage on which many artists have been taking turns for decades at different times. Each one performs his number; some stay, others fade away. Some bring innovations, others recycle obsolete acts. There’s always room for everyone on this stage, and there’s always a new audience ready to applaud. Some stay, others fade, but the circular substructure is always there, firmly anchored with solid roots.”
If you’re interested in the people who are drawn to crop circles, you might also like to read Jim Schnabel’s Round in Circles (http://www.jimschnabel.com/ / https://www.amazon.com/Round-Circles-Poltergeists-Pranksters-Cropwatchers/dp/0879759348).
Here’s a gorgeous new pair of man made crop circles (of that I have no doubt), filmed by Matthew Williams and friends using a UAV Drone Multicopter (Video 2 & 4 on the list). Matthew is now making what has to be some of the best crop circle film anywhere ! Absoultely outstanding images ! To me, Matthew’s work highlights the exceptional artistry and beauty of these man made crop circles. I’m almost jealous that I didn’t have a drone when I made my circles over the last few years (unlike the guys in Argentina who did have a drone who tried to copy one of my circles) ! Also check out the man with the big willey (which is not unlike Maree Man from a few years back, in outback South Australia) ! Drones really are breathing life into landscape art and how we see the world below !
