"LIGHTNING STRIKES!" AT THE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE

Lightning Dreams: The Electrum at Gibbs Farm
LIGHTNING STRIKES! EVENT | MUSEUM OF SCIENCE, BOSTON | NOVEMBER 7, 2012

The world premiere of "Lightning Dreams: The Electrum at Gibbs Farm" Produced and Directed by Alberta Chu took place at the Boston Museum of Science. The ticketed MOS Adult Programs event "Lightning Strikes!" featured the "Lightning Dreams" film premiere, a panel, and a show in the MOS' famed Theater of Electricity. It was a terrific event attended by over 300 people.

 

High-voltage engineer Greg Leyh's presentated of his plans for his ambitious Lightning Foundry project. Then the museum's own resident high-voltage physicist Daniel Davis moderated a conversation with Greg Leyh of Lightning on Demand and filmmaker Alberta Chu.

Daniel Davis amazed all in the MOS' famed Theater of Electricity with a special showcase of electricity in many forms. Spirited attendees participated in human electricity mad-scientist experiments and several lucky audience members, including the winners of the Steampunk Fashion contest, received their 15 seconds of fame inside the Faraday Cage. Shoutouts to everyone who turned out Steampunk! It was great to see some of the "Lightning Dreams" Boston film crew: Eric Masunaga of Modulus Studios and Composer P. Andrew Willis
