    It's called "Fragments from Olympus". They just put up a website www.fragmentsfromolympus.com and a facebook page. I worked on the teaser shoot. Leo Rossi (annalyze this, the accused) is in it. The people making it are cool- they're trying to raise awareness for Tesla's Wardenclyffe lab which is about to be torn down. check out the site if you're interested and help support their cause.

    The Wardenclyffe Lab is on, yep, Tesla Street, Shoreham, Long Island, NY.
    Tesla Street

    Street view doesn't cover Tesla Street but there are some pictures, including one of the lab itself. Looks like it's in serious danger of being lost to delapidation or demolition.

    Nikola Tesla is also a character in the sci fi TV series "Sanctuary".

    Although the Sanctuary version has superpowers, not just a super-brain.

    Nikola Tesla was born July 10, 1856 in Smiljan, Empire of Austria. Smiljan is in Croatia today.

    Parents are mother Djuka Tesla (born Mandić, 1822 in Tomingaj, Yugoslavia (today Croatia)) and father Milutin Tesla (born 1819 in Raduc, Medak-Lika, Yugoslavia (today Croatia)). Parents ware both born Serbs.

    That means Nikola Tesla was indeed Serb. Good find Simeon!
