      Hi All,

      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:

      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:

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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?

      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.

      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.

      Craig Zagurski on

      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.

      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!

    30. Christina C Nicholls on

      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!

    31. Natasha Toner on

      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.

      Lee and Barry Mirrer on

      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!
