Just got the vid it was great. Good job guys!
Hi Julie - your DVD should be to you this week if all goes well with the US Postal Service. This has certainly been a long process, but, as you'll see from the 1st film, this project and creative collaboration has an intrinsic ability to shed light on so many issues and topics... so we have to keep it going! We've definitely been "bootstrapping" it, but it is important to keep doing these events.
Kind of funny getting an email about 12/12/12 movie when we havent even seen 2010 yet. Wow.
Hi Memo, We sent a response to your comment last week on the update #11 page. We'll address it here as well. We are working with a fulfillment company to come up with a solid solution for shipping to nearly every country in the world. It has not shipped out, but we are close. We want to make sure we get this all done at once. Thanks for your patience. As mentioned in the emails that have been going out regarding address collection, we are making sure we give everyone a chance to get the rewards we have promised. Please keep in mind that we finished the film just this April/May and have to work through a distribution process to make sure the film will reach viewers far and wide. Kickstarter supporters are getting the first run of the DVD. Thanks again.
Please give an update. I've not received a DVD yet.
Have they been sent out?
Have other backers received their DVD?
I have emailed you 2 times and no reply. I have not received any emails and no word on the DVD. You are starting to give kickstarter a bad name. What is the DEAL?
Estimated shipping date for DVD's?
We are sorry that some of you have not received the email blasts. Given the growing nature of our One Day on Earth online community (approaching 30,000), and the small size of our team, we try to be as efficient as possible by aggregating our email lists into a single blast. Aside from email blasts, you'll also notice that we post blog entries and updates via social media - feel free to check out the latest posting from last week: http://www.onedayonearth.org/profiles/blogs/our-weekly-update-1
That said, I hope everyone is aware of the global screening on Earth Day (April 22nd). We are literally working around the clock to try and secure venues in every country of the world. We have just finished the film and we are currently coordinating distribution for the screening.
As per standard distribution schedules, DVDs are produced and shipped after the film is released - we are working toward an official release date, and we can't wait to share this film with you.
If you are interested in the global screening, please check out this link: http://www.onedayonearth.org/screening
Another update is coming. I'll post a comment here to inform you that the email has been sent, so you will know to check your inbox.
Thank you for your patience and support. This has been a labor of love for our team and we have not wavered for a single day in making sure that this film exceeds all expectations. It is truly a one of a kind community effort. Thank you for being an important part of this movement.
Any information at all would be nice.
I also have not gotten an email. I hope I can still get my copy. =[
Same here - did the DVD already get released?
I havent gotten any emails.
Hey Rob, are you not getting the emails? We sent one a week ago.
It's now March and we havent heard much lately.
Hey gang, glad to hear about the coming release dates - would love to see the film on the big screen. I assume that DVDs will be going out to contributors soon as well, yes?
Thanks for seeing this monster project through to completion!
Our film is far more caused based and, especially with the support of some of the worlds leading NGOs & UN, gives a fair representation of daily life on our planet: both the joys and struggles. With Vimeo as our partner, we worked with some of the best content creators in the world :) Here are a couple articles that address the differences from the New York Times and Telegraph.
As an ongoing community and collaboration, we recently filmed again on 11/11/11. We hope to do it every year going forward. Thanks for the support and reaching out to clarify.
Hi Brandon and Kyle
I've been really excited to be a small part of this project.
But recently, when I was telling a friend about it, they told ME about "Life in A Day".
A film from Scott Free Productions that is already out.
Sounds like almost exactly the same thing!
Can you guys share your thoughts about this?
Is it the same concept?
How is "One Day on Earth" different?
Hi Rob and Craig,
Sorry for the communication lull - the last update was sent through a service called "constant contact" and it seems kickstarter updates have proven more reliable. We just posted an update a moment ago and we are excited to report that we have begun conforming the film. Now that we have gotten past a few major hurdles, we'll plan on posting more updates on progress. Thanks so much for the patience and so sorry for the unintended radio silence.
-Brandon and Kyle
This seems to be the case with several projects I've backed. They get the money and then decide to just vanish and not update much at all.
Agreed, Rob. We pledged our money to make this project a reality. I believe we are entitled to at least an update if not our promised DVD's. What's the word, ODOE team?
Last update was September. From that update: "We are working diligently on finishing the first global film and will be reaching out later in the year for shipping info to send the Kickstarter rewards when the final steps are complete."
The year is almost over, so it's safe to say they forgot and/or were busy working on the 11/11/11 thing. Hopefully a new update is sooner than later.
Yeah, I have been looking forward the DVD so badly, too! Any new updates?
When do the DVD's ship?
Thank you for the opportunity to be a small part of this HUGE project! The special tour of the United Nations was GREAT! You're making this big world a smaller and better place.
proud to be a backer thanks for this unique creative initiative
I am really happy about this project and happy to be part of it. Fabulous!!
"May the Source be with you!"
to touch. to feel. to make: Love. Congratulations on your success!
I am very proud to have been a part of this project .
I'm happy to be a backer, but I'm curious as to how this film will be different than "Life in a Day". (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1687247/)
Beautiful. I can't wait to see the final product.
A truly wonderful project that emphasizes our inter-dependency and interconnectedness. Quite inspiring.
Two thousands over the goal and still 17 days to go. Great idea, please make the best out of it!
Thanks everyone! The showing of support is really touching and our team is so excited to be able to continue on the path we started together back in 2008.
Please continue to spread the word; we'd love to put as much available energy and funds into making this everything we all know it can be.
There is lots of news to come - we have some BIG ideas (of course!).
It's finally funded! I donated the remaining $19 dollars!
Just donated $25 and only a little over $500 to go! So close!
Hope you guys don't mind. I am co-host on a local radio show in Boston, MA and since I could only pledge $5.00 - I decided to do a PSA announcement about your project on our show last night.
I would love to see this happen!
Was happy to help fund the project. The trailer brought tears to my eyes and I had goosebumps for about 5 minutes. I know you'll exceed your goal. Thank you for making this.
LOVE the trailer, if just a few more people donate the $25K goal will be reached! Amazing that 16,000 people are a part of this. If each person donated $2 dollars there would be a total of $32,000! Since only 469 have donated thus far you will exceed your goal! It should be easy to get the balance needed to go forward. I am proud to be a part of this project ! Much love to all of you for ALL of your efforts!
$5 donation to a wonderful project and I am spreading the word!! I have loved this since I first heard about it in August 2010! Good job!
Very exciting to see a project with Global reach, Regional participation, National significance and a Universal message getting funded! I'm proud of what this says about all of us.
whoo hoo looking good! If every person involved could give something even 5 dollars it would be so amazing!!! Encourage every person to get involved and show it with some donation to back it up!!!!
This is absolutely fantastic project. It's a big pleasure for me to be a part of this community.
GO KYLE and Team ONE DAY!
If every person gave a couple dollars -this could happen so wonderfully and everyone would be a part of why it happened -please send the message again to everyone to get involved again- let them know in a strong message one email is often overlooked GO FOR IT
I want so much for this to be made! Keep getting the word out so that you reach your goal in time :)
This is such an amazing project!! I hope this goes through for you all!
Thank you everyone for you amazing comments and spirit. It is a true community effort - the film message is important, and we are proud to help you (the community) tell it.
This is so amazing!! Almost a third of the $25k goal has been pledged in just TWO DAYS!!! I am sincerely honored to be part of this film and am excited to be part of the community to make it happen! We'll get there, friends!!
