The producer of groundbreaking documentaries such as Free Energy: Race To Zero Point, and Cold Fusion: Fire From Water — Chris Toussaint – is planning a new TV series that challenges the fossil-fuel paradigm. First, however, people have to spread the word that the show needs a $5,000 kick-start of funding and Kickstarter.com is the place where everyone can join together and make it happen. See the first version of the promo video here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ChrisToussaint/ultimate-energy-showdown-series
Ultimate Energy Showdown: Advanced Green Technologies Put to the Test is the title of the proposed television and internet series.
Recent events such as the catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico underscore the reasons why we need a changeover of energy tech. “But there is hope,” Toussaint says. “Emerging ‘green’ and exotic technologies are here today. Technologies that if implemented would completely revolutionize our planet’s power needs. A green industrial revolution.”
Ultimate Energy Showdown is described as a television series that demonstrates — and proves or disproves — new energy devices that could power our homes, automobiles, and the electric grid.” It combines the do-it-yourself, practical ‘does it work?’ philosophy of MythBusters with the scientific integrity and creative imagination of NOVA.”
Yes! It will be refreshing to see scientific integrity involved in the television production when breakthrough energy inventions are shown on TV. Up to now, the mass media entertainment industry has largely presented what the vested interests want you to see.
Toussaint put together a professional team to develop and pitch the series to international cable TV networks with the intent of producing high quality episodes for a reality-series budget. However, to reach them he first needs funds to print materials and demo DVDs, hone the “sizzle reel” and attend major television markets/conferences starting next month.
I appreciate the team’s passion about this subject and the impact it could have on society. If this kind of information reach mainstream audiences, Toussaint believes, it can shift the conversation from Doom and Gloom about the environment to hope. “So that when these technologies do come to market, millions of people will know that they are not just ‘perpetual motion machines’ promoted by scammers, and they’ll be armed with knowledge to go out and buy them instead of relying on the coal, oil and nuclear industries for our energy security.”
