WAYNE SHORTER: ZERO GRAVITY, A DOCUMENTARY ON ONE OF THE GREATEST LIVING JAZZ LEGENDS IS TO BE RELEASED IN 2014.
The inception of ZERO GRAVITY began in 2006 and principal photography is now in progress. Join us in celebrating Wayne Shorter’s life and musical legacy by pledging to help us complete this film by 2014.
For a limited time you will have the opportunity to pledge for some pretty cool exclusives – Everything from an invitation to a live digital premiere of the director’s cut of the documentary (you’ll get to see the film online before it is released to the general public), autographed DVDs, concert tickets, Wayne’s artwork, a voice mail recording with Wayne and Esperanza Spalding to a private dinner with Wayne and Herbie Hancock!!
ZERO GRAVITY is an intimate portrait of an artist who has influenced music for over six generations. Wayne Shorter continues to break through the imposed limitations of jazz with even more innovative compositions and recordings than he has achieved in the last 50 years.
“Wayne Shorter is a beacon of hope and humanity as he challenges our perception of what we know as music. He is at the forefront of a dynamic surge in the world of jazz. He is a philosopher in his own right and has a had a long commitment to affecting social change through his own human revolution by way of his Buddhist practice” – Dorsay Alavi, director of ZERO GRAVITY
If you know Wayne Shorter’s music than you know how important it is to share with the world what he has contributed and inspired in many of us.
If you are not familiar with Wayne Shorter, then this is a great opportunity for you to get an intimate look at his process, music, his compelling life and his latest movement ZERO GRAVITY. You also get to hear about his creative exchanges with John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Miles Davis and Weather Report. You don’t have to be a jazz aficionado to appreciate Wayne Shorter. He will definitely open your mind to what you think “jazz” is.
Every pledge will get your name on our thank you page of our official website. Plus, everyone who pledges will get access to a special ‘pledger-only’ part of the Pledge site where you can see clips and pics of the documentary as it comes together!
We are eternally grateful!!
