A number of people formerly involved in David Miscavige's international festivals of Shermanspeak and Computer Generated Images have noted that many of the videos showing "accomplishments" are in fact staged by Golden Era and presented as "real".
Children are rounded up and put into videos of supposed "education programs" that last as long as the cameras are rolling and not a minute longer. Orgs are "filled" with pcs and students consisting of staff and friends, family and any warm body that can be rounded up to make the HGC and courserooms look busy. Relief efforts are rigged just for the cameras. Ribbon cuttings are staged etc etc etc
The footage is never identified as a "recreation" when it is presented. Instead it is heralded as "proof" of "expansion" and "inroads into society."
