About this project
Speciesism: The Movie tells the secret of modern farms, and displays speciesism itself, in a way that no film has ever done before. Visit the Speciesism: The Movie website to see the official trailer and more.
Now, here is how this works: If your combined pledges equal or exceed $15,000 before the 60 days are up, Kickstarter will process your cards and send us the total. And then we will be able to afford the flyers, posters, advertisements, and travel expenses necessary to reach thousands of additional people when we begin traveling to film festivals across the country. But... if the pledges do not total $15,000 or more, your cards will not be processed, and we will receive nothing!
And here is what else happens: Each person who pledged will receive a very meaningful gift if we reach or exceed the fundraising goal in time. Look at the pledge categories listed to the right: each one contains a description of the gift you will receive for that pledge. As you can see, we have put a lot of special thought into these gifts, because they represent the depth of our appreciation and thanks.
Please choose a category to the right and make the largest pledge you can, today. Thank you, again and again, for leaving your mark, by being a part of our work.

We spent years trying to develop the ultimate thank-you memento for our backers. Now we have it: The Official Bobbling Scale of "Speciesism: The Movie." A miniature sculpture of our scale of justice, with the director balanced on the left, the chicken balanced on the right, and a hidden spring that lets them bobble back and forth. The film's title/website is carved into the base, and the film's tagline ("You'll never look at animals the same way again. Especially humans.") is printed on top of the base. You will also receive everything in the categories above (an autographed advance-copy of our original movie poster, and two DVDs of our best outtakes, including never-before-seen footage).Estimated delivery:

With this pledge, you will personally make a tangible difference in the number of people we reach. With the deepest appreciation that we can possibly express, we would like to give you a rare copy of the out-of-print first edition of the book that started it all - Animal Liberation - with a thank-you note and autograph from Peter Singer. We searched far and wide to find ten copies from the batch that PETA printed and distributed in its early years, and we brought them to Peter Singer for his autograph. You will also receive everything in the categories above (your name in the closing credits, an autographed advance-copy of our original movie poster, two DVDs of our best outtakes, including never-before-seen footage, and our scale of justice sculpture).
