      Hi Jennifer,

      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.

      Best,

      Brandon

      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!
      How frustrating!

      Can you guys share your thoughts about this?
      Is it the same concept?
      How is "One Day on Earth" different?

      -jennifer.

      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.

      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/)

    16. Chelsy on August 7, 2011

      Beautiful. I can't wait to see the final product.

      Two thousands over the goal and still 17 days to go. Great idea, please make the best out of it!

    19. One Day on Earth 2-time creator on July 24, 2011

      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!).

      Just donated $25 and only a little over $500 to go! So close!

    22. Christina C Nicholls on July 22, 2011

      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!

    23. Natasha Toner on July 22, 2011

      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!

      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

      Way to go, you guys! What an awesome undertaking! Can't wait for the film! I almost sent some footage I shot back on 10-10-10, but was too swamped trying to finish up my own doc on sustainability around America, YERT: Your Environmental Road Trip (trailer at YERT.com). Your trailer looks great - can't wait to see the full thing! God's speed and good luck!
