Editing on the summer cut of the movie continues at a furious pace. I’m spending a night in the editing room then coming back home to sleep the next night. It’s hard for people who don’t do this kind of work to understand that this is more exciting to me than spending a week at Disneyland. It’s magical to watch the little pieces of footage from all over the world turn into the story of what’s holding America back and how we can transform the country into a green energy nation. I’m amazed at what’s showing up on youtube.com as well. It’s nice to see people like Arnold now getting into biodiesel. More soon, JT

From the Biodiesel Caravan Crew

Wednesday, January 16, 2022 Good Morning from Provo, Utah! I am traveling with the biodiesel caravan on our way to the Sundance Film Festival and representing Fields of Fuel. We are an amazing group of 15 traveling in a caravan from Venice, CA to Park City, Utah stopping overnight in Provo, Utah. Our morning started out with a great speech by our fearless biodiesel leader, Josh. What an adventure the last 29 hours have been! Really the last 29 days if you want to be technical. I calculated that our caravan team had an average of 4.5 hours of sleep the night BEFORE we met at 6am to drive from the Fields of Fuel Office in Venice, California to Provo, Utah. That was the average, I was on the low end at 2.0 and the award went to Sarah Rose our online documentarian at 1.0 hours. But she didn’t drive and I did! We hit all kinds of little troubles, the least of which was the muffler of Bruce’s newly acquired 1983 Mercedes 300 D dragging on the highway to snowy conditions at high altitudes with18 wheelers blowing by. But for the most part, I’m left with fun. An extraordinary group of cooperative souls, heading into a 10 day opportunity to introduce 55,000 of this country’s media decision makers to biodiesel. We are all wearing matching white t-shirts with our MAKE FUEL, NOT WAR motto on it. We are all educated and enthusiastic about leaving a mark on the mountain in Park City. And everywhere we go, we communicate the message of this film, that this is an abundant life and that YOU have a choice. 11:30 meeting in the hotel lobby – then fuel the bodies, fuel the vehicles and drive the 3 remaining hours to move in on the Lodge that will house these 17 passionate difference makers for the next 12 days. It’s snow camp with a purpose! See you on the mountain J Andrea J. Veggie Lounge Hostess

Screening?

Hi, I just heard about your film on Talk of the Nation. Our research institute does significant research in bioenergy, (http://www.jcvi.org/cms/research/groups/synthetic-biology-bioenergy/) and I run the Green Group within our facility. I'd like to see if there would be any possibility of a screening at our facility at JCVI, or perhaps join you at a local showing near the District of Columbia with our mobile lab (http://www.jcvi.org/cms/education/science-education-program/), or some other venture. Please contact me through the e-mail address above. Thanks, -Ian

Getting involved

If you want the world to get involved we need a list of cars to buy and a web site that tells us where we can buy the fuel and what it will cost. Donating money to you is just fine but that does'nt help us to get involved. So get to work, your web site needs more info. I will give a donation now to help you with the web site. mpr
