The Emmy Award Winning Everyday Edison's Season 6 TV Show Is Back

marvinbl7's Avatarg8_badge

I am beyond excited to be back with our community and part of this Amazing TV Show Everyday Edison's with my partner John Vilardi.

I was fortunate enough to be a part of Everyday Edison's Season 5, 7 years ago for a different product my partner John Vilardi and I invented

We are now filming the Emmy Award Winning TV Show Season 6 in North Carolina at two filming locations for a 5-6 day shoot.

The experience I had filming Season 5 and Season 6 couldn't be any more different. What we get now and that includes everyone here in our community is a wealth of education from meeting with Mentors, Engineer's, I.P. people, Marketing, Branding and perfecting our presentation over the course of 6 days. All of this filmed and to be seen in February 2020 on Amazon Prime.

I can't thank Lewis Foreman, Chris Ferguson, Michael Cable and his Amazing production staff enough for all their help and support along this Incredible journey. And I thank Aimee and Mia for great company, information and making this journey all the better.

I will ask the 23 other inventors to stop by and introduce themselves today and tomorrow so everyone here will get to know them as I have over these last few days. 

Stay tuned!

Marvin Blaine and John Vilardi

Great to see you Fred, Derrick and K J! Missed you guys!!!

Half our group of 24, 12 of us our presenting to the judges today and the other half  presenting tomorrow myself included.

The one's who are not in front of judges today will get to sit in a Starbucks type setting and watch our inventors pitch to the judges. 

We have 3 Judges. Lewis Foreman, Chris Ferguson and a surprise judge.

Once aired you will see the education we received in each department which helps us all.

Met Chris Ferguson yesterday for a brief second as he had just flown in. He walked in our room of 24 inventors and introduced himself and shook every one's hand. We were all very impressed.

I'll be back to give you all updates and promise to get our 24 inventors to chime in and share their experience.

Sounds like you're really enjoying the experience.  Good for you.  I had not seen the Everyday Edisons prior.  (No boo's please)  Can all 24 participants have success?

Hi Jamie

There are 24 of us presenting our ideas to the judges this season 6.

There will be 3 Inventors per show 8 shows total. One of the 3 inventors will win for the show but the other 2 inventors can still get licensing deals, manufacturing or put in contact with a company to arrange a contract with so no one really loses.

You can catch Season 1 - 4 of Everyday Edisons on Youtube. Great Watch!!!

Hi Marvin,

Congrats on getting another shot on EE, got to go back and see you on season 5 for a refresher.

Great experience, one question, does this season only include 24 inventors?

If so hope there is a season 7.

Hi Jim

You can catch Season 1-4 of Everyday Edison's anytime I believe on Youtube but the format has changed and in my opinion Season 6 is electrified.

Although I was on Season 5 of Everyday Edison's about 6-8 months after the show was filmed they decided to use another platform so that season was not aired.

Yes, Season 6 will include 24 Inventors. There will be 8 shows consisting of 3 inventors per show where 1 lucky inventor is chosen as a Everyday Edison.

The beauty of Everyday Edison's is although one inventor is chosen per show if they like another inventors idea presented on that same show they will also move on the one or additional ones they like.

All 24 inventors this week were highly educated on making a great presentation with  newly found knowledge here at base camp thanks to the team and team work at Everyday Edison's. The staff here did an amazing job getting our ideas for products and or products ready for the spotlight.

On National Inventor’s Day, February 11, 2020, which is also Thomas Edison’s birthday. Everyone who tunes in to Everyday Edison's Season 6 on Amazon Prime will get a education in Invention like I've never seen before in my 61 years of inventing.

Jim my best guess is after this experience and once aired there will be a Season 7,8,9,10 and so on and so on.

Thank You Emily Dings for your informative blog post.

I will second Marvin's summary of the past week - not sure I have ever met a more diverse, creative, sincere, talented group of people; every single inventor was passionate and committed. Additionally, the mentors,crew and staff went above and beyond to ensure questions were answered and preparation resources were readily available. All in all, a professional experience and I look forward to seeing the new episodes in February! 

On a personal note - I finally had the pleasure of meeting Elizabeth Crouch in person. Elizabeth's positive energy is infectious and helped me through a number of the more stressful moments. She freely shared her knowledge and was relentless in her commitment to the success of others.

Have a great week everyone----

Coming from my partner John Vilardi on this one, I'll take it :) You mean the show of course. 

My partner John built our prototype, produced a 3D animation and developed our sell sheet for the presentation. The best in the business. We met here on Edison Nation back in 2009 and have been like brothers and partners ever since.

Ryan, great to see you here. Meeting you made the experience all the better.

Derrick, your in for a real treat as well as the best invention education you will ever experience. February 11, 2020 is right around the corner and then it's show time.

Great to be back in our community.

Great thread Marvin!

It was such a pleasure meeting you on the set of Everyday Edisons.  You are such a cool guy and soooooo Elton John!!!

The entire experience with all the Inventors, Mentors, Crew, Judges , and the EN team was so amazing that I will never forget it.  Like Ryan said, it was one for the books!  Only wish that John was able to be there, too "(

Hope to get to see you again soon!  Can't wait 'til Feb 2020!!!

Elizabeth a.k.a Liz Your The Best!!!

Loved meeting you and thank you for being the best mentor ever!!!. I'll take Elton but still feel I look more like Billy Idol meets Rod Stewart :}

John my partner was there as i had him on my phone texting me a few times a day and loved every second of sharing this amazing educational journey with him.

One of the Best experiences of my life being a part of Everyday Edison's Season 6. Production staff was over the top friendly, carrying, fun and supportive.

*Special shout out to Michael Cable, Aimee and Mia! 

Liz ditto on hope to see you again soon. Feb 2020 is right around the corner.
