PREMISE – SPOILER WARNING:
Falling Skies is an American science fiction post-apocalyptic dramatic television series created by Robert Rodat and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. The series stars Noah Wyle as Tom Mason, a former Boston University history professor who becomes the second-in-command of the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment, a group of civilians and fighters fleeing post-apocalyptic Boston following an alien invasion that devastated the planet six months before the events of season one.
The series is broadcast in the United States on the cable channel TNT, and is a production of DreamWorks Television. The series premiered on June 19, 2011.
On July 18, 2014, TNT renewed the show for a 10-episode fifth and final season.
Falling Skies tells the story of the aftermath of a global invasion by extraterrestrials (including mechanical attack drones called “mechs”, a species of green-skinned six-legged beings known as “Skitters” that appear to control the mechs, and a third mysterious species known as the Overlords, or “Espheni”, presumably the actual engineers of the invasion and the masters of the Skitters). Within a few days the invaders neutralized the world’s power grid and technology, destroyed the militaries of all the world’s countries, and killed over 90% of the human population. The aliens’ objectives are not explained, though the aliens try to round up children between the ages of 8 and 18 and attach a biomechanical obedience device onto (and into) their spines, referred to as a “harness”. The harness controls the child’s mind, and forcibly removing it generally kills the child. The story begins six months after the invasion and follows a group of survivors who band together to fight back. The group, known as the Second Massachusetts (an allusion to a historical regiment from the Continental Army), is led by retired U.S. Army Captain Dan Weaver and Boston University history professor Tom Mason who, while in search of his son Ben, must put his extensive knowledge of military history into practice as one of the leaders of the resistance movement.

Q&A Interview With Martin Rangelov
TG: What got you into sculpturing?
MR: I was 5 years old when I start, I wasn’t a kid who plays sports so I create my ‘play” in home. My instruments can be found in any scrap box or locker, there is nothing fancy about my work, except the end result of course… I believe in the idealized darkness.That does not mean to be bad or anything, I love the mystery that’s all. All of my creations are abstract in some way – there is no realizm, and also – there is no symetry…
TG: What would be your favorite alien?
MR: My Fav. alien is The Predator.
TG: What materials do you use the most?
MR: I’m using two types of clay – chavant and polymer.
I love metal.Armours, gears, helmets and all.i love skulls also.
