So.... you may have heard about The 1 Second Film's Road to Oprah tour by now... Goodness knows I've been talking about it enough.

You probably know that the Evangenitals are going to be the "road band" for The 1 Second Film's Road to Oprah tour, and we will be traveling over 10,000 miles in a bio-diesel school bus from October 4th - November 2nd, presenting and performing at Universities and house parties across the US and Canada -- final destination, Oprah Winfrey.

You may not have heard that we have received official invitations from both Google and YouTube to present and perform at their corporate headquarters next weekend. Also, Apple computers and Von Dutch have just come on board as "stuff" sponsors, donating editing equipment and software (Apple) and T-Shirts and marketing support (Von Dutch) for The 1 Second Film.

We have bought a school bus and are converting it to bio-diesel with sleeping cots and kitchen, awesome exterior paint job, credit-stand caboose, and a bunch of other down-home features that will help to make the experience of 8 people living together on a bus for a month a bearable one.

All of this has been accomplished with a lot of work, a lot of willingness, a good dose of insane idealism, and a LOT of dollar by dollar fund-raising in the form of selling producer credits for The 1 Second Film.

This is where you come in. :-)

Corporate sponsors are beginning to take notice and donate much needed gear and goods, colleges and universities are booking our traveling show to come to their school, more and more producers are coming on board every day... and we still need to raise about $20,000 to cover the food and most basic living expenses of our cast and crew.

The Evangenitals are taking a major chance by hitting the road, taking leave of well-paying jobs and loved ones. We're hoping that it pays off -- in the spiritual sense -- and doesn't crush us in the financial sense, either.

If you have been sitting on the fence in regards to getting yourself a producer credit on The 1 Second Film, I encourage you to act now and seal the deal. This is potentially the largest collaborative work of art ever created, and I would love for you to be a part of it.

You can create a producer profile and donate to the film here:

If you don't want a credit for yourself, for whatever reason, you can help the Evangenitals move up the credit-listing ranks by donating through OUR profile!

Your support of The 1 Second Film will be like buying us all a hot meal on the Road to Oprah, and helping us spread the Evangenitals love all over the 10,000 miles of road that we are going to cover on this journey.

If you'd like to make your support a little more direct, you could always buy an Evangenitals album (, download our music off iTunes, or simply send us a few bucks in the mail. We take checks! :-)


If you are located anywhere along the Road to Oprah, we hope to see you on our travels! We are setting up shows and presentations every step of the way and we're always looking for volunteers, coordinators, other artists to perform with, and an audience to perform for.

Please check out the Road to Oprah map and schedule to see if we're coming to your town, and let me know if you'd like to help out, perform, or participate!

Thanks for being a friend of the Evangenitals. We truly would not have the balls to take this trip if it wasn't for all the love and support the Evangenitals have received from folks like you. I hope to see you soon!

Much Love,
Juli Crockett
The Evangenitals
