I'm pleased to announce the establishment of a partnership between Jeff Parisse and Tesla Universe. Jeff will moderate the Tesla Today : Movies and Television forum, provide exclusive content and host a recurring session in the TU Tesla Coils chat room. Jeff is the co-founder and director of kVA Effects, a firm that provides high voltage electrical special effects for TV, film and theater.

kVA Effects makes electrical arcs from six to sixty feet and provides high voltage effects and stunt services worldwide. Jeff's company provided all the high voltage effects for Mel Brooks “Young Frankenstein the Musical” on Broadway and Cirque du Soleil “Believe” featuring Criss Angel in Las Vegas. kVA Effects and its founders have provided high voltage effects for many popular motion pictures such as “The Prestige” and Vin Diesel's “XXX.” Presently they can be seen on History Channel's “Modern Marvels” and on Discovery Channel's “SciFi Science.”

Jeff's presence, participation and leadership are a huge asset to Tesla Universe. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table and lends credence and authority to Tesla Universe. It is both a pleasure and an honor to have Jeff as part of our team. Once the scheduling is confirmed, another announcement will be issued regarding the chat sessions Jeff will host.
