Become a Part of The Burden

Our Kickstarter campaign for The Burden is off to a great start, and thanks to your contributions, we've crossed the 10% mark in the first week. Thank you for your support! Be sure to check out this week's short video update to see how the film rebuts the mistaken idea that our domestic energy boom will eliminate the national security threat our oil dependence poses.

We have a wide variety of perks available for your Kickstarter pledge of any amount, large or small.  Every little bit helps!  Here are some of the perks you can earn:

  • $5-$25 - We'll list you on our website.
  • $30-$75 - Membership in the Bronze, Silver or Gold Circle, which include a streamed view of the film once it's finished.
  • $100-$750 - Receive all of the above, and great gear from our partner, Operation Free.
  • $1,000-$10,000 - You'll get an invitation to the film launch in Washington D.C., and credit on the film.

One very special perk at the $5,000 level is lunch with myself or one of the cast members from the film (subject to scheduling and availability).  This is a rare opportunity to connect with those on the front lines of bringing America's clean energy economy to reality.  We only have nine of these left, so be sure to get your contribution in right away.  

Check out our Kickstarter page to see my new video this week, and see which contribution level works for you.  


Thank you for being one of The Burden's most ardent supporters.

With gratitude,

Roger Sorkin
