THANK YOU ALL for helping The Earth Moves raise 100% of its goal!

I am incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support for this film and I can't wait to share it with all of you.

Now that The Earth Moves is fully funded, let's keep the momentum going and make this film even more miraculous.

If this campaign raises 115% of its goal before its funding deadline at 7 PM EST tomorrow, I will give every single backer a virtual tour of my editing room and share an inside sneak peak at The Earth Moves documentary.

I've recently added some new rewards to celebrate our success: 

TWO TICKETS to any of BAM's Next Wave Show ($500)

  • Receive a pair of tickets for Executive Producer seats to a BAM Next Wave show of your choice. The show will be followed by a backstage tour with BAM's Director of Production, Neil Kutner. BAM swag included. Travel and accommodations not included. 

TWO TICKETS to the TIBET HOUSE BENEFIT CONCERT ($500) 

  • Receive two tickets (with exclusive rehearsal access) to the Annual Tibet House US Benefit Concert hosted by Philip Glass at Carnegie Hall in early 2016. Past performers include The Flaming Lips, Patti Smith, Dev Hynes and many more!

FIVE MORE SETS OF TICKETS to the NYC SCREENING of THE EARTH MOVES ($250)

  • You and a guest will attend an exclusive screening of The Earth Moves in New York City. Travel and accommodations not included.

THANK YOU for helping me bring this incredible project to life. I will never forget your generosity.

My sincerest gratitude, 

John Walter

      Saw this in Brooklyn and Los Angeles last year. Would have gone to Paris too, if I had a girlfriend to take. (small tear)
      Please Philip and Company, even after the film is out and in my hands...bring the real deal back in five years as majestically as you did the last production...with the same ENORMOUSLY talented performers. BRAVO

      I saw Einstein on the Beach at Lincoln Center in the seventies and sat for five hours motionless and mesmerized. When it was over, I was flying and nourished in a way no theatrical performance has done before or since. I will never forget it. I'm so excited for you and cannot wait to see the results.

      Congrats! Psyched about the film. As a fellow editor, I'd love to see that behind the scenes look of your cutting room. Pullin' for ya.
