New Documentary Film

Why Not Now!" with Alan Watts is now available along with the "Essential Alan Watts" in a biographic two-DVD set, and may be ordered at the link below. The documentary film on the life and works of Alan Watts began conceptually as a shared storytelling in which the narrative would support Alan's own telling of his story. However during development it became apparent that most of the story could be told through Alan's own words, particularly when supported by the wealth of original media we had uncovered including video, film, and photos. The entire process took about eighteen months after the initial video restoration, and in the end we were delighted to discover how much of the story was 'in the can' once the puzzle pieces came together. To this we added contemporary footage of Japan and Big Sur, music, animation by Eddie Rosas of Alan as a young man, and a fly-through of woodcut prints by Tom Killion brought to life by special effects artist Bruce Walters. The film was initially titled "Being in the Way" but with the new approach the title was changed to "Why Not Now!", drawn from an LP on the art of contemplation recorded by Alan in 1968.
Each film comes with The Essential Alan Watts, a bonus disc of video materials we couldn't fit into the film, and The Animated Alan Watts (see description below).

Alan Watts Re-Animated!

Every order for Why Not Now? will now include an animated reel featuring vintage and contemporary animations of the spoken words of Alan Watts. This 23 minute DVD includes extracts from the groundbreaking 1972 series "The Fine Art of Goofing Off" as well as a couple of animations produced by the SouthPark creators and animators. The reel has been met with joyous laughter and standing ovations at recent film showings, and is not to be missed!

Donate to the Alan Watts Project

Co-Sponsor an Alan Watts Film Showing.

We have had many requests for us to come and show the film to groups around the country and abroad. Although it's not practical for us to travel to do so, we are looking for Co-Sponsors interested in organizing screenings in cities in 2014. Screenings would benefit the Alan Watts Mountain Center, and help us stay on track for opening in September of 2014, as well as supporting like organizations hosting a film event. If you are interested in learning more about hosting a screening please contact Mark Watts at
Thank you!
