The EMPIRES campaign goes viral!!

Dear friends of EMPIRES,

As a result of your generosity we are nearly 50% funded!! To date we have raised almost $10,000. An impressive achievement and we couldn't have done it without you. Sincere thanks to all of you.

Now as we enter the homestretch of the campaign (20 days and counting) we are reaching out to you to help EMPIRES go viral! Please send the note below to 10 of your closest friends, with the subject line "Can one film change the way you think about our culture?" If we can get 1000 people to donate $10 we'll reach our goal!

Thank you again for your support and your belief in this film.


The EMPIRES team

I'm backing EMPIRES on Kickstarter. For less than the price of two lattes be part of EMPIRES, an epic documentary film in the making about the effects of social media and networks on how we see ourselves and our future. View the trailer and contribute $10 on Kickstarter today.

THANK YOU and please pass this on to 10 friends.

'A great collection of some of our most brilliant contemporary thinkers! …What a tour de force!!'  Magdalena Rangel, filmmaker
