Tesla Movie
Famous motion picture director, Ken Russell, has announced filming to begin this summer on a dramatic biography tentatively titled Tesla and Katherine. Russell, whose cinema credits include The Rainbow, Gothic, Crimes of Passion, The Boyfriend and French Dressing among others, is often controversial in his film treatments. As mentioned in a March 24th, 2002 article in the London Sunday Telegraph, Russell plans to savage Edison for his ruthless tactics in opposing Tesla's Alternating Current system in the famous "War of the Currents." The Society has provided certain background material to the film's Producer. Cast has yet to be announced.

Society Media Support
The Society's mission is to honor and perpetuate the memory and ideals of Nikola Tesla in an accurate manner. The Society actively cooperates with film and video producers to provide technical support and personality insight on Tesla through on-camera interviews; use of memorabilia and photos; and referrals to knowledgeable individuals. The Society requires end credit recognition for itself (and the Tesla Museum, if appropriate) and copies of completed programs for Society archives. Similar support is available to all forms of print media. For a summary of recent Society media support, please access the Society website or contact the Society directly.

Commercial Use
The Society receives many offers to use the name and image of Nikola Tesla for commercial purposes. The Society cooperates with those projects that support and enhance the reputation of Tesla in appropriate ways. Compensation received is shared equitably between the Society and the Nikola Tesla Museum.
