Filmmaker Victoria Charters announces the world premiere of her documentary, Dr MegaVolt:  From Geek to Superhero, on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival (http://www.comic-con.org/cci/film-festival).  The 1-hour, 12-minute screening will take place in the Grand Ballroom D of the Manchester Grand Hyatt, 1 Market Place, San Diego, California, from 2:35 pm – 4:05 pm. The independent film features Austin Richards, PhD, aka Dr MegaVolt, a physicist who has been enchanting friends, colleagues, and the media since 1997 with his high-voltage performances employing Tesla coils while he is enclosed in a metal Faraday suit.  The result is a spectacular “lightning”  show.

The film chronicles Austin Richards’ journey from a precocious and curious young boy who loved to play with electricity, to a graduate student at U.C. Berkeley where he built a giant Tesla coil. The movie highlights Dr MegaVolt’s escapades as a legendary and popular performing artist at the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, as the guest star on many science-minded TV specials, and when he added a female performer, Victoria Charters, to his performance, delighting the audience with “his and her” high voltage  adventures.

According to writer/director/producer Victoria Charters, “This is a story about the spirit of science and the intersection of art and science in Industrial Art.  Themes explored include love of extreme experiences, a driving passion to understand the physical world through science, creativity and collaboration, invention, and ultimately the responsibility of “passing the baton” in a world where tactile learning is out and digital is  in.”
