The backers of a documentary on Nikola Tesla noticed yesterday's post on the successful crowd-funded project to preserve one of the inventor's labs in Shoreham, N.Y., and sent along some information on their campaign to fund documentary television producer Wil Cashen's Electricity: The Story and Life of Nikola Tesla. You can click on the quick video clip above to learn more about the project or visit its website.

Ian Chaffee, who works for SocialRadius, the Santa Monica, Calif.-based marketing agency that's promoting the project said in an e-mail, “It is shaping up to be the perfect time for the American public to finally learn about Tesla, or to revisit what little they might already know about the man. Whether it's The Oatmeal's staggeringly successful rallying of its fans to Tesla's cause, the rumored biopic starring Nicolas Cage and Christian Bale (who also starred in Christopher Nolan's Tesla-influenced "The Prestige"), or even the car company using Tesla's name and invention to power the future of driving, Tesla's visionary work and bittersweet biography are as astonishing and relevant as ever.”

Electrical Marketing LiveWire will be providing more details on this project at a later date.
