At the dawn of the 21st century humanity stands upon a precipice.

Climate change threatens to forever alter our planet, as we know it. Excessive amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are the result of over a century of polluting fossil fuel technologies. Environmentally-caused health issues are soaring. Recent catastrophic events have underscored the point.

But there is hope.

Emerging “green” and advanced exotic technologies are here today. Technologies that if implemented would completely revolutionize our planet’s power needs. A green industrial revolution. Providing mass numbers of people worldwide can get up to speed on which technologies are real, safe and worth their weight in crude oil.

Ultimate Energy Showdown is 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. We'll feature 3-4 cool devices or processes on each episode.

Our hosts Matt & Carter challenge the validity of each inventor and invention presented. One is more open minded than the other, creating a critical debate that holds the viewers' interest and provokes global audience interactions through the "cloud".

I've assembled a professional team to develop and pitch this television series to international cable TV networks and produce high quality episodes for a reality-series budget. We feel strongly that we can get a cable deal as well as an Internet streaming deal if we can reach the decision-makers with a professional pitch package.

To reach them, I need funds to print materials and demo DVDs, hone our sizzle reel, and attend 3 of the major television markets/conferences coming up, to meet with and pitch the concept to network executives. These events are:

Factual Entertainment Forum (Real Screen) - June 2-3, 2010 - www.factualentertainment.com
Great American Pitchfest - June 26-27, 2010 - www.PitchFest.com
LATV Fest (NATPE)- July 12-15, 2010 - www.LATVfest.net

Obviously, we will have to expend some of our own money upfront to cover a good part of these expenses before our Kickstarter campaign is up. Costs will include attendance fees, printed materials like one-sheets and business cards, as well as DVD copies of the sizzle reel. We will also include consultation with Mark & Jeanne Simon, founders of www.SellYourTvConceptNow.com which will cost about $350.

We are passionate about this subject and the impact it could have on society. Type in "Free Energy" at Yahoo.com and you'll see over 1 billion hits - the interest is out there! With multiple media programs focussed on Green Energy Alternatives, we feel the barriers are finally being broken down to allow for this kind of information to reach mainstream audiences. We feel it can shift the conversation from Doom and Gloom about the environment to one of 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.
