“Everyday Edisons” Season 4: Behind the Scenes Part 2

In Part One of our Everyday Edisons behind-the-scenes look, we gave you a look into filming inventor Greg Bruce’s Cardio Air Tubes. Today, we’re taking you behind the scenes of another Season 4 product, Dr. Faramarz Farahi’s “PV Fabric” – along with a peek into where all the show editing takes place!

The Scene: The Everyday Edisons crew set up production in the Enventys engineering shop. Senior Engineer, Jeremy Losaw, explains to viewers how PV Fabric works.

The Scene: The team congregated at Gaston College School of Textile Technology in Gastonia, NC to film the school’s director, John Anderson, answering the question: What is PV Fabric?

intern, De Ann Mitchell; Video Editor & Cinematographer, Corey Utke; and Social Media Coordinator, Andrea Simon took a quick pic during set up. Producer, Elyse Williams was behind the camera!

Interesting fact about the brown material in this bag: It’s yak’s hair that its owners intended to use to weave a blanket for the Dalai Lama.

While you won’t hear it on camera, Elyse asked John a series of questions to get the perfect clip of his PV fabric explanation. This was followed by a stroll around the facility to capture b-roll.

To find out the answer to the question “What is PV fabric?” and learn about Faramarz’s innovative use for it, you’ll simply have to wait and watch the episode! 😉

The Scene: The Everyday Edisons editing suite- where all the pieces come together!

Senior Editor, Lewis Dameron, hard at work editing footage of inventor, Brian Smith.

Larry DeLeon (Supervising Producer), Elyse Williams, Corey Utke, Lewis Dameron and Everyday Edisons intern, Troi Cabbell are tasked with capturing hours and hours of footage that must be condensed into ten 27 minute episodes.

As you’ve seen in the past and will see again this season, they always do a great job of making it happen!

    This sounds cool. I am not sure what PV fabric is but, if it creates enough “green” electricity to power or recharge a cell phone/tablet computer, I will buy several.
