The Gift of Light Equality

How a Maverick Inventor is Bringing Light and Power From Water to the World
A 40 year quest for the unusual and “impossible” renewable energy source lands on a simple solution. One that was hidden in plain sight, this series will open the eyes of people of all ages and backgrounds to further innovation with the technology. It has the potential to replace solar panels and batteries with a non-toxic, regenerative fuel cell. Unlike solar panels and wind turbines, there is no end of life solid waste. As will be demonstrated in the series, it can be scaled from a single LED to household size.
Please join us, as we travel the World sharing “The Gift of Light Equality”


The Water Cell-India.

 We will travel to the jungle of Karnataka, Southern India, to show people how to create micro powered light and appliance charging in a remote environment. Set on a sustainable farm, we will build a more sophisticated unit than in the first episode to show the possibilities for home sized units. Supporting local musicians to do the film score will add to the local flavor.                          Involving nearby schools with a roadmap for outreach to surrounding areas will further the mission. We will also be exploring manufacturing in the region for world wide product distribution.

The Water Cell-Dubai

A high tech, fully functioning, household size unit will be built and demonstrated. Using electronics, the power output can be amplified, introducing yet another little known technology. The simplicity and versatility of the Water Cell will be fully demonstrated in these varied settings to inspire worldwide use.  

We are in production

The first installment is well underway, as filming and editing are being done while experiments are performed. A unique feature of this series is in capturing historic events as they unfold. From simple cells to more sophisticated builds, the mission is:        “The Gift of Light Equality”.

Support the Film, Support the Mission

As a businessman, Sterling has been considering patents for some aspects of the technology. As a humanitarian however, he recognizes that the immediate solution for light and power should be quickly disseminated through the films. The experiments and improvements shown are intended to inspire people to carry forward, without delay.

The Team

Sterling Buell  Inventor, Executive Producer

Having a curious and inventive mind, Sterling began restoring cars of the 1930s at age 13. Volunteering at the Los Angeles Co. Museum led to an invitation to work at the Smithsonian Institution at 17. Exhibits construction was a fun job, but his passion for classic cars called him back to Southern California. Opening an auto restoration shop at 21, he operated that facility for 15 years. Going into semi-retirement, he began the restoration of his 100 year old stone house in the Santa Monica Mountains. It looked like a Mayan Ruin when he started. One mile from all services, the ancient road had been reduced to a trail. Five years into the project his family moved in. Water was pumped 1/4 mile from a spring. Solar panels, a generator, and batteries supplied power. Having been a student of alternative energy systems since the 1970s, he studied the most esoteric technologies to fully explore the subject. Becoming a film maker is somewhat of a happy accident. An old friend happened on the scene of Sterling’s latest work, and decided to start a documentary. So, here we are! Support of these films will enable his life long dream of bringing clean power to the world a reality.

The benefit of sharing your funds with us is in accelerating the widespread development and use of the Water Cell. Sterling has funded the project so far, and will continue. He’s had the ability to take a while off work, but that time is rapidly coming to an end. This film is getting done, one way or the other. (Sterling is just trying to find a way out of his day job).

But Wait !!

We have 2 more episodes to go-

The India episode is estimated to cost $100,000.


The Dubai episode, our most sophisticated build, comes in at $150,000
