Its so exciting to think that tomorrow is the official release date of "What Is New Thought?". We did the first official screening of the film in Savannah, GA and folks really seemed to enjoy it. It also spurred a lot of conversation about New Thought history afterwards, which is great. Other screenings are starting to pop up around the country and tomorrow the movie will be available on the www.NewThoughtMovie.com website for the general public.
You should have already received an invitation to my dropbox folder that has a download version of the movie. I know many of you have already watched your digital download and sent me messages about it. Make sure when you go to the folder to click "download" instead of trying to play it directly from the dropbox folder. It will only play 15 minutes from the online folder. If for some reason you haven't received that link let me know and I'll make sure you get it.
As you may know, packages for the kickstarter campaign were sent out in the mail Friday and Saturday. You should receive your packages this week if you haven't already. The only things that haven't gone out yet are the posters (which will be sent this week), some personal letters and videos (which I will also start sending this week) and mp3s of original music. I didn't actually record any original music for this project like I had originally intended to do. What I've done instead is everyone who was signed up for that level, will receive a copy of my first Nashville recorded CD, MORE. Also, I've made arrangements to make the movie available as an MP3 for whoever is interested in that.
Finally I'd like to encourage you all, when you do get a chance to see the movie, tell other people about it. Its your word of mouth and telling people about this project on social media that has propelled this movie to where it is now. So now that it is available for the world to see please continue in that. This New Thought movement has a rich history that people should know about and the philosophy has much to offer the world. My hope is that this movie will open people up to that. Thanks again for your support and encouragement and I hope you enjoy the movie!

Well here we are February 2013. Its amazing to think that it was not even a year ago that we started this journey together. As you probably know, I've been saying since the beginning of the kickstarter campaign that we would have a February 2013 release date and here we are. Duplication will start this week and my hope is to start sending out materials sometime this week.
With that being said, make sure you've filled out your information and its current so you can be sure to receive your materials. The first thing that should be sent out will be a link for downloading the movie online.
The official release date is February 19th. That's the day the DVD will be available for order on the website. After that it will start being distributed through Amazon, and later to iTunes and possibly some other distribution channels. I look to have all of the kickstarter incentives sent out by February 19th. Along with the release there are screenings being scheduled in Georgia, California, Oregon, Arizona, and its amazing to see it all coming together.
Thanks again so much for believing in this project and helping to make it happen! More details on the release will be coming soon.
I hope you had a great holiday season and are having a happy new year. I know I haven't sent out an update in a while, but that doesn't mean that a lot hasn't been happening. I've been very busy editing the and getting ready for the release. Some of the incentive materials and swag is starting to come in already. : ) We are still on track for a February release but I'm still not sure what date, just yet, materials will start to be sent out.
Information regarding screening information will go out this week, so if you / your church or center like to be put on that list send an email with the subject line "Screening Information" to Jon@NewThoughtMovie.com or you can go to the website for more information.
I've set up a private link on youtube with the opening segment so you can see it below...
Have a blessed day,
I know its been a while since the last update, but there really has been a lot going on with the documentary. Most recently I had the opportunity to meet and interview Will Bowen, the creator of "A Complaint Free World." To date they've given out somewhere around 10 million bracelets!
As many of you know, I post many updates on the facebook page, but I've also made a lot of updates and added information to the website. Check it out if you haven't seen it yet... www.NewThoughtMovie.com.
The editing of the film is coming right along and we're still on track for a February release. Last week I posted a trailer for the movie online, you can watch it below.
Have a blessed day,
