Transforming Gravity


A documentary short that explores the work of John Worton, a sculptor who has spent the past 15 years of his life trying to create a Gravity Wheel. The idea behind this, to create unlimited potential energy. John battles against set beliefs and theories from the science, maths and engineering communities to try and create something that will not only revolve under it's own weight without help from outside forces other than gravity, but prove a 300 year old theory created by Johann Bessler actually works.

Filmmakers Dominic John and Jordan Saville wanted to document John's work and what makes him tick (or rather revolve) whilst he works on his latest iteration of the gravity wheel in his Cornish workshop. Why has no one created a working gravity wheel before, and what makes John think he'll be the one to do it?
