Thank you all once again for your continued support of The Earth Moves. 

Director John Walter is currently hard at work in post-production. We are completing two last interviews -- and doing a final fine cut.    When we are ready for a very first preview screening here in New York, we will post it on Kickstarter.   We'd love to have those of you nearby give us some feedback.   Again, we could not have gotten this far without you — your contributions have been vital toward finishing the film.

We have shipped a great many rewards but this was much more labor intensive than we'd anticipated -- not just getting the busy composer to sign 105 copies of his book but also manufacturing t-shirts, totes and towels. For those who are still waiting, we expect to have rewards out by the end of April (with the exception of copies and screenings of finished film). 

If you have specific questions regarding your individual rewards, please message Courtlin Byrd on this Kickstarter site or email We will strive to be extremely communicative about future shipments and any new information.

You should have all received the completed digital rewards at this point. They were sent out from If you’ve had any issue with download, don’t hesitate to contact Chris at the aforementioned email address. 

Again, thank you for your patience,

Lianne Halfon and Courtlin Byrd

      Received my Einstein highlights and documentary DVD today - I'd completely forgotten about it, so it was a wonderful surprise! Many thanks!
