“Fields of Fuel” Documentary Promotes Biofuels: BBI International Sponsors

Josh Tickell’s "Fields of Fuel" documentary-in-progress has a completion target for this September...and will hit the film festival circuit in 2007. The project has perhaps evolved beyond author/director Tickell's original concept, but the promise of biodiesel and the focus on renewable energy remains principal to the 90-minute film.

While the film's chief focus remains biodiesel, it encompasses all varieties of renewable energy including ethanol, wind and solar power. "This film has a more global perspective than when we began, but the backbone of the film is still biodiesel," Tickell said. "The film uses biodiesel to tie the whole thing together."
"Fields of Fuel" is capturing a worldwide renewable energy movement. And it’s not just about how the United States can follow the lead of Europe or Brazil, but about how the world can follow the United States. "In a lot of ways, the United States has a viral culture," Tickell said. "People adopt everything American, from Coca-Cola to Madonna. … If we move forward with positive, definite steps to embrace renewable energy, it sends a message to every other country in the world."

The "Fields of Fuel" team, typically a crew of six, spent most of the past summer traveling the world. Their journey started with a biofuels conference in Portugal early this summer. The team's next stop was a tour of Germany. The filmmaker focused on German gas stations that were selling biodiesel, including B100. The crew eventually returned to the United States, shooting once again in the Midwest and northern California.

Tickell and producer Greg Reitman feel there is an appetite for documentaries to push the envelope and provoke emotions in the viewer. They believe "Fields of Fuel" will do just that—"reach out and grab every American."

"You will feel a gamut of emotions," Tickell claimed. "I guarantee that nobody will watch this film and not get angry. I guarantee that nobody will watch this film and not get inspired. I guarantee that nobody will watch this film without wanting to change their lives and their country."
Tickell and Reitman are looking to investors to help finish the film and submit it to film festivals. BBI International is on board as a sponsor and is also helping find other companies and individuals who would like to sponsor the film.
