postheadericon This Sunday's Meeting / Screening Rally


It’s an exciting time in The Movement! We have very high expectations for the screening of Zeitgeist: Moving Forward showing at the Royal Oak Main Art Theater on January 20th @ 7:00 PM (ET)! Don’t forget the next meeting is this Sunday at the Phoenix Café, in Hazel Park (24918 John R Rd, Hazel Park, MI 48030) @ 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM.

As members and coordinators it’s time to pitch in and lend a hand. To help the cause we have the following initiatives that we need assistance with:

1) Poster printing and posting. Please print out the poster sent out in the group email or posters and flyers from the selections at Post them around your community in the right coffee shops, bookstores, community centers, college campuses, and on community bulletin boards. If you do not use the attached flyer, we recommend attaching a simple flyer at the bottom of your poster with the basic details about the event. Leave a stack of flyers at appropriate local businesses and ask if you can place a mini-poster in their window. Try video stores, coffee shops, restaurants, community centers, barbershops/salons, schools, campuses, and anywhere else that your audience likes to hang-out. You can also try placing an ad on local bus systems, on school shuttles, and similar places. Distribute flyers at events with similar themes prior to your event.

2) Social Media. Social networks like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter have become hugely important in reaching certain audiences, and can be especially useful when there’s a Facebook or MySpace group connected to a specific local community such as a university, local organization, etc. We have the event page that you can find at:!/event.php?eid=176169042410210 If you have the ability, pleas create your own event page, it’s very easy! You can also embed the ZMF trailer on your website, Facebook, MySpace along with your local screening details. We suggest setting up an “event” and inviting members of your community to forward and distribute the event information to friends. You can also just send a message with the event information to your friends and to groups that might be interested, including links to the website as well as the gateway at The closer you get to the premiere date, the more advertising needs to be in place. Utilize your FB and YouTube and Newsletters to the maximum during the last days before the premiere.

3) Burn DVD’s. We are in need of Zeitgeist: Addendum DVDs. If you have the ability to burn the DVDs you can find free downloads (Bit Torrent) at We plan on giving away these DVDs at the screening for a small recommended donation.

4) T-Shirts. We would like to make some t-shirts to give away at the screening for small donations. If anyone has made or can look into making T-Shirts you can go to for t-shirt designs and ideas. There are companies such as: that offer pretty reasonable prices on t-shirts.

5) Donate to the cause. We have a widget located above this post that you can use to easily donate. Even if you’re donating one dollar it all adds up! There are over one hundred “members” of this movement in the state. If everyone donated $5.00 this would cover a lot of the venue costs. If you would prefer to send a check instead of donating online please send any donations to: “Sean M” @ PO Box 9, New Baltimore, MI 48047. Thank you in advance for your donations and support.

6) Come to the meetings. We need as much input as possible on how we can be more effective in our efforts. The next meeting is this Sunday at the Phoenix Café, in Hazel Park (24918 John R Rd, Hazel Park, MI 48030) @ 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM. Please join us, all are welcome!

7) Make sure you get your ticket for the film! Tickets will go on pre-sale from the Royal Oak Main Art Theater no later than late next week. Select Zeitgeist Movement members will also have some tickets for pre-sale after next week. Please rally all of your friends, family, co-workers, whoever and get them to commit to joining us for the viewing of this film!
