The First Inaugural EV Parade West Santa Monica, CA - Saturday, January 17, 2009 Produced/Directed/Shot/Edited in iMovie by Enza Sebastiani Camera Team - Enza Sebastiani, Philip Safarik, Dwight Lay, Gerry Gaydos Producing this documentary gave me the opportunity to meet incredibly talented and driven people, from filmmaker Chris Paine (Who Killed The Electric Car) who's working on his next movie "The Revenge of The Electric Car", to Jordan Howard, 16-year old Green Ambassador who "demands we drive on sunshine for an electric vehicle revolution." Scientists, engineers, politicians, writers, press came together here in Santa Monica, California to speak out loud about their plan to produce electric vehicles and to improve hybrid/electric public transportation. The First Inaugural EV Parade was possible thanks to the vision and hard work of http://PlugInAmerica.org co-founders Paul & Zan Scott, Linda Nicholes, Chelsea Sexton and so many volunteers from all over the US and the world. A big thank you also to the Electric Auto Association (http://www.eaaev.org) that for 41+ years have been a great advocate of alternative energies and conversion of IC to EV engines throughout the USA and the rest of the world. I hope you will enjoy my documentary as much as I did creating it with a great little team, zero budget, a Mac, iMovie and iLife '09. Thank you all!

2012 Chevrolet Volt Start Up, Engine, Test Drive, and In Depth Review
In this video I give a full in depth tour of Chevrolet's newest extended range electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Volt. Introduced as a 2011 model in the northern states, the 2012 has a few minor quality and feature improvements. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. Take it on a thorough test drive through the city during the day as well as night time.

Chevy Volt - 9 Months and 9000 miles with this amazing GM hybrid electric car [Review]
http://www.redferret.net/?p=34759 .The Chevy Volt is charging ahead in the electrifying battle to become the #1 plug in hybrid. OK, so how cheesy an opening is that, but the reality is that for the first time since the horse drawn carriage, gasoline is slowly becoming more of an optional part of the personal transportation equation. At least that's the way it seems right now...gas powered skateboards may change the balance once again if they get popular. But I digress. The Volt isn't the first electric car, nor is it the sportiest (hello Fisker Karma), or the one with furthest range (nice to meet you Tesla Model S), the cheapest, the largest, the shiniest, and it can't make balloon animals. However...it is definitely a landmark vehicle. The Chevy Volt is simply the most practical plug in hybrid ever created, and I am not surprised that it won the European Car of the Year at the Geneva Motor Show this summer (http://www.wired.com/autopia/2012/03/volt-ampera-europe-car-year/). It combines a 35-40 mile electric range with a surprisingly agile internal combustion engine (aka "gas engine"). Of course, electric driving range is just one feature, even a golf cart can stagger a few miles on an electric charge. The Volt however manages to combine plug-in technology and practicality in a fun-to-drive package, and the result is a vehicle which achieves a phenomenal gas mileage while at the same time offering conventional sedan style comfort and style. And what other car comes with not just one, but two smartphone apps to keep you informed and in touch with your vehicle? Most importantly, you don't need to worry about running out of battery charge half way to your destination, as with other electric vehicles. We definitely haven't seen the last of this kind of imaginative and innovative technology. Check out my video review below which bursts quite a number of myth balloons about this brave engineering gamble from General Motors. More at www.redferret.net
