"All About Tesla": A New Excellent Documentary Film about Nikola Tesla


"All About Tesla" was directed by Michael Krause and Produced by Peter Roloff and Michael Krause.

The following can be found at http://www.allabouttesla.com/ (for information click on this website):

In ALL ABOUT TESLA – THE RESEARCH director Michael Krause visits important places in Nikola Tesla's life, he meets with busy researchers and adamant fans. Exclusive interviews with scientists, politicians and other personalities of today reflect the inspiring influence of Nikola Tesla on their research. The film shows how the memory of Tesla survived and how it was kept alive. What do people do with Tesla’s inventions, ideas and visions today?

Tesla’s 150th anniversary was celebrated in 2006. The city of Niagara Falls, Canada, commissioned a monument to Nikola Tesla. The sculpture was unveiled in July 2006. The film follows the creative process of building the bronze Tesla statue by artist Les Drysdale. During the film, Tesla’s birthplace Smiljan, Croatia, was turned into the “Tematski Park Nikola Tesla”. This transformation marks the growing interest in Nikola Tesla, the most underrated genius of the technological era.


Director’s note:

I became interested in Nikola Tesla 20 years ago. A friend of mine had written a novel, in which Tesla played an important part. I wrote the script for a feature film with all the ingredients this fascinating character offered: a genius with tremendous success, and a downfall. Happily this film was never made.

After a long time working in the film industry I wanted to become a filmmaker again. I had worked on documentaries, and I sat down with my producer. There was a question in the room: what should the film be about? From the far end of my brain a name took shape: Nikola Tesla. There he was, the character I would spend the next four years with.

It became clear that Tesla is BIG. If you google Tesla, you get more than 14 million hits. What do you do with all this information? I decided to concentrate on one question: who is doing what now (with Tesla)? I went on a research tour to meet all these people. I found the most marvellous, friendly and focussed people you can imagine. Interest in Tesla was common sense.

I met people who know a lot about the state of this planet and the things they told and demonstrated make you scared. It is a wonderful world we live in, but we have this really big problem: energy. During my research I have witnessed some phenomena, which, if the technology could be realized, would be things to hope for.

Tesla envisioned a peaceful world with abundant energy, without wars and the need for it. He was a true visionary, and his most interesting vision was to tap into the eternal source of energy of the Universe. Today, this is called dark energy. This energy is there, we just can’t see it.

Tesla was a master of energy. I think he really felt some of the most fundamental forces. We all do. It’s all energy and we sometimes, if we’re lucky, feel it. My idea was to make people aware of Tesla’s ideas. Maybe they can help us out of the upcoming energy crisis. ALL ABOUT TESLA – THE RESEARCH became an experience of a lifetime. It’s a nice piece in time; it documents my quite adventurous and astonishing research.

The following people were interviewed in this documentary:


Bill Wysock

Bill Wysock: "This coil has maybe 25 Watts. It goes up from there. My largest coil requires 130.000 Watts, 130 KVA."

William C. Wysock is into Tesla Coils since 1962. He developes and designs Tesla Coils. They are built to the highest standards. Bill Wysock runs the company Tesla Technology Research. Large Tesla Coil systems were installed in museums and research centers world wide.

Craig Newswanger

Craig Newswanger: "He had both aspects, he had pure genius and some of that genius resulted in practical results and some of it resulted in ideas that were later proven wrong proven impractical. There is this mixture!"

Craig Newswanger lives in Austin, Texas. He works for the holography company Zebra Imaging.

Dr. Pupovac

Dr. Milorad Pupovac: "Tesla in Croatia and former Yugoslavia is not only known as a genius discoverer, as a genius engineer, as is someone of the few people who actually belongs to the modern world. Not only in the sphere of technique, than in the size in general. But in Croatia, in former Yugoslavia, he was known by a famous saying, that he is proud of his Serbian origin and his Croatian homeland. And in that time official policy was quoting Tesla, as a good example of what a good Serb should be in Croatia. But in the same time for such person there was no place to stay in peace with the monument and of course to have the house not to sacrifice not to actually disgrace in that way that it happened by some people who were governed but not only kind of value except the hate."

Prof. Dr. Ljubo Vujovic

Dr. Ljubo Vujovic: "I am involved in Tesla movement since I was in school in the city of Pancevo near Belgarde. As a child participating in a Tesla Coil in action, me and other students were holding each others hands and there were sparks all over, but the electricity going through our bodies did not harm us and I was amazed at the Tesla Coil and since that time in 1954, I am always with Tesla."

Tesla Memorial Society of New York and its General Secretary Dr. Ljubo Vujovic has initiated a procedure in FR Yugoslavia to recognize July 10, the day when Nikola Tesla was born, as the Nikola Tesla Day. This is the first step in the final goal to have July 10 recognized by the United Nations as the World´s Day of Science, Prosperity, and Peace among the nations and religions.

Hal Puthoff

Dr. Hal Puthoff: "I give you an example, of a place if there is all this energy around me, why didn´t I notice it? In fact, we notice it. You are standing in a train, it takes off with a jerk and suddenly you are flat on your back. As if some 200-pound person came and knocked you down. What is it that actually knocked you down? Or: you take off with a jet on an aircraft carrier and you are pressed in your seat. What is it exactly that is pressing you back in your seat? It turns out this vacuum energy of sea - if something tries to accelerate through.. part of the back pressure .. It´s actually the zero-point energy wind that is blowing on all the atoms of our body and knocking us over."

Dr. Harold E. Puthoff is the Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin/Texas. His present research interests range from theoretical studies concerning gravitation, inertia, cosmology and energy research, to laboratory studies of innovative approaches to energy generation and space propulsion. A graduate of Stanford University in 1967, Dr. Puthoff´s professional background spans more than four decades of research at General Electric, Sperry, the National Security Agency, Stanford University, SRI International, and, since 1985, as Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin.

Hone Brothers

Paul Hone: "If we could turn the clock back and go back in time and change all that and allow him to find the funds or say: here is the money, go and build that tower right now, and lets prove it and stand the test and by doing that people who wanted to have that free energy could. I guarantee the world would instantly change."

Paul and Stephen Hone are British, living in LA. Their song "Nikola Tesla Man Out of Time"is about the forgotten Scientist (Serbian/American) who invented"the polyphase AC electric current"we all use today, Radio, RadioControl, computers, satellites, microwaves, beam weapons, nuclear fusion etc. His Birthday is July 10th. We did not include everything TESLA invented/thought, as it is a vast list (also his nephew was an incredible inventor too! but that is for another day) this is an attempt to help people get a heads up on "WHO" this amazing man was, and some of what he did do, and how he was destroyed!!!!!!

Les Drysdale

Les Drysdale: "The whole idea was to create something that he himself would have apreciated."

The sculpture has been up for just over a month now and it has occurred to me that the photographs I have seen all look great, but I really hope people get the chance to visit the site and see it in person. I think that if the viewer actually walks up to and around the work, even touches the sculpture only then will they be able to see and feel all that went into the work and to understand its full meaning. Not only is there the experience of the presence of the sculpture in the setting of Niagara Falls that surpassed even my expectations. There are also little details that have been placed here and there as rewards to the inquisitive. You see my greatest challenge was not just to create a portrait of Tesla that had the physical likeness of the man but to create something that also said something about his life, his relationship with Niagara, how he thought, his amazing accomplishments and give the sculpture something of the poetic elegance and theatricality that permeated everything he put his mind to.

Prof. Michio Kaku

Prof. Michio Kaku: "We think that empty space is the void of anything, that´s what the vacuum is, the absence of anything." But Tesla pioneered the idea that there is energy, energy within this vacuum, and so did Einstein. We think that this energy is something called dark energy, and dark energy we now realize makes up 73 percent of the matter/energy content of the universe. That´s phantastic! We think of atoms, and we think that atoms make up the Universe. Wrong! The latest satellite data shows that 73 percent of the known Universe is made out of dark energy, pioneered by Einstein and Nikola Tesla.

Michio Kaku (born January 24, 1947 in the United States) is a Japanese American theoretical physicist, tenured professor, and co-creator of string field theory, a branch of string theory. Kaku received a B.S. (summa cum laude) from Harvard University in 1968 where he came first in his physics class. He went on to the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley and received a Ph.D. in 1972. In 1973, he held a lectureship at Princeton University. In addition to holding the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at City College of New York, he has taught there for more than 25 years. Presently, he is engaged in working on Einstein´s "Theory of Everything," seeking to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe: the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism. Additionally, he has been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, as well as at New York University.

Rude Mechanicals

Lana Lesley: "The play ("Requiem for Tesla") really wanted to address the big idea." And genius really explore genius - the serious typical ones, madness, isolation he really Tesla exemplified almost every single one you could associate with genius - so we wanted to talk about also the idea that he had of free electricity - which is just an incredibly generous act - he was willing to put out in the world .. .and how sad it was that we couldn&acut't accept that and that he died without a legacy like that which he just handed over but the act itself was incredibly generous. RUDE MECHANICALS (a.k.a. Rude Mechs) is an ensemble-based theatre company founded in Austin, TX in 1995. Since our inception, we´ve produced 22 original theatrical productions, received over 125 nominations for artistic excellence and have been honored as "The Best Theatre Company in Austin" by the Austin Chronicle for a record four consecutive years.
Here´s what we do:

  1. We manage The Off Center, Austin´s most affordable performance venue. By keeping our rental rates low, we subsidize the work that goes on in The Off Center to the tune of about $20,000 per year. In 2004 the Austin Theater Critics nominated more shows for special merit that happened here than at any other venue in town. If you´re looking for the best music, dance, or theatre in Austin, come to The Off Center.

  2. We collaboratively create original work in Austin. We don´t produce the old chestnut´s or even new chestnut´s by other people. All of our work is home grown. We promise to always use our best thinking, our fiercest arguments, and the last of our midnight oil to make mentally nervy and physically ecstatic shows. We believe Austin has a unique voice. We are proud to represent it here, and to export it with sass as we tour nationally and internationally.

  3. We keep Austin´s performance scene fresh by presenting the best touring shows in the country. While other venues have the bigger touring shows covered, Rude Mechs brings you the best of intimate performance. In collaboration with the University of Texas Department of Theatre and Dance, we bring you Throws Like a Girl a festival that highlights female theatre artists&acut' cultural contributions in Austin and in the American theatre.

  4. Outreach. It´s a little word that covers a huge array of activities meant to show our gratitude and give muscle to the idea that Rude Mechs is not just a theater company but a community. Our Pay-What-You-Can nights embody an aggressive application of our mission to ensure that the arts are accessible to everyone, regardless of economic status. We are also proud to serve as a bridge to the next generation of artists with "Grrl Action" our annual summer camp in writing and performance for teenaged girls.

Tom Valone

Tom Valone: "The sources of energy are there it just that we have been stopped as scientist for 100 years by the prohibitions, by rules that cannot be broken. The rules of thermodynamics are the ones that we often fear. We not even tread in those areas where the fear´s the most."
