Have a question?
What happened to this film? I would have had this thing cut in a few weeks and ready to go. Whats up??
Is the film going to completed or released? Because your twitter account hasn't been updated since August of last year and this hasn't been updated since march of last year. And I got my rewards minus the digital copy of the film and there wasn't anything with them so I was actually confused at what they were at first.
Was this film ever actually produced? It's still only the trailer on the website and there haven't been any updates for over a year now. Just wondering what's going on.
Any updates on the digital download of the film? I never got it???
It's all gone very quiet now...
Can we please get an update on the documentary?
Woow! We are just back for a new Kickstarter (a Sci-Fi this time :) ...and we where checking old projects we back... and I really liked this one! I was looking forward to watch it! ... can I buy it anywhere? VOD? Did you guys distributors anywhere? If you do please let us know! We really want to watch it! :)
Please update us.
Just. Curious if you wouldn't mind posting an update for us all? :)
Curious to find out if we will be receiving our backer rewards and seeing this film anytime soon. I understand how long it takes. I too am a documentary filmmaker, but maybe just give us a heads up on how its going. Thanks!
I am not particularly fussed about receiving the final film as I backed this project mainly for the potential promotional value for the NWHL and maybe women's hockey in general. However it would be courteous for the creators to update their backers with some information on their progress if any. After all the second season is about to get underway and this movie will be past it's sell by date. It is perhaps sad to see that this project may be going the way of so many previous failed efforts.
Hi! I never received my sticker rewards, but I see that most people did. Is there any way that I can still get them, or have some of them not been sent?
I'm wondering if there's an update for the timeline of the film premier. We're approaching the December estimate, which I realize is only an estimate. But people from out of town need a little time to make plans for the visit. Thanks.
Very much looking forward to the film!
I never received my reward; are they still being sent?
Hope post-production is going well & that we get an update soon!
I received my Hockey Pencils and stickers (I'm in USA). Did I miss an update? Is there a timeline of when the film will be complete? I'm excited to share it!!! GO NWHL!
@Deansy I'm Australian and mine arrived June 21 hope this helps :)
Fantastic puck and cool stickers arrived yesterday in UK. Looking forward to digital movie and song perks and wondering when to expect them.
Any word on International (AU) shipping?
Just got mine!
We just got our stickers, pencils and foam puck. Eagerly waiting to see the film.
Thanks Rachel Rebel. I hadn't heard an update on when rewards were to be shipped. I hope I get mine soon. Been waiting a long time.
I saw on Twitter that someone received their rewards and 540 Films responded that most people should receive them in the next few days.
Hello! It's now been almost 3 months since the last update. Is there any update on rewards and the production as a whole? Thank you!
Any updates on backer rewards? This was intentionally a late christmas present for my Wife.
It's starting to turn into a next christmas present.
Like Laura Kemper and others, I too have not received any info or my reward. When will items be shipped. I have filled out all the info and would love to get an update. Thanks!
Any updates? Haven't heard anything since early March.
Sarah & Laura -
Thank you so much for pledging (thanks to Laura's brother, too!), for completing the survey, and for your patience! We're still waiting on some rewards, but we're working to get the items that we do have into the mail after the Isobel Cup Finals. We'll continue to post updates on the project and rewards here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1803843886/nwhl-history-begins/updates.
Any word on when rewards are being shipped? My brother and I both pledged and haven't seen our rewards or any updates. We both filled out the survey. Any info would be great!
When will we receive your gifts for backing? I haven't got an email update since I pledged. :/
Great Job! From a project creator to another project creator... Thanks to be here and make it happen! :) you rock!!!!!
It's an honor to be apart of this!
Congratulations! This is such great news! I love the NWHL and all of their players. Its so great that my little sister will be able to grow up with hockey role models, just like I did. This means so much to me. Thank you so much!
Thank you to all the ladies of the NWHL for being great role models for my little 6 year old hockey princess. I am looking forward to sharing this DVD with her so she can see the strong women that came before her and what they did so she could have a place in the future to play professional hockey.
Thank you to the NWHL players for your dedication and sacrifices as you pave the way for our daughters! Thank you to the supporters that come in every form from hockey moms, coaches, former professional athletes, sponsors, volunteers, etc. for inspiring girls youth ice hockey. Sincere appreciation from my heart for touching the lives in my family as we pledge to support you #growthegame. We promise we will back you to our ability. #futureNWHLplayer #HistoryBegins
As a former recreational player on women's teams in women's leagues, I am thrilled that there is a professional league for our elite players! I look forward to a West Coast expansion, hopefully not too far in the future...
Happy to support this campaign and the NWHL. Congrats on meeting the goal. I can't wait to see the finished documentary!!
Congratulations and hooray!! I am so happy to see this funded & grateful to all who supported & spread the word! This is so exciting! Can't wait to see the finished product! :)
Congratulations! I am so happy to be a part of this - as a backer and as a hockey mom.
Congratulations! I'm so happy that this will be funded!
Yay we made it! Congratulations! I was going to be so sad if this didn't get funded. #growthegame
I wish i had $1000 to spare :(
Its getting so close!! Very exciting.
Beth, it was so fun to shoot the girls on the ice at the launch! Thanks for commenting and continuing to follow the project.
Rachel - we met briefly last spring when my daughter was one of the girls on the ice during the NWHL's launch party. She's had a blast going to the Riveters games this season and getting to meet the players. We can't wait to see the finished product on your documentary!
Cecily sends her $3 and hopes this gets made! <3
Laughing Cat & Tania -
Thank you both for your support. Feeling very fortunate to have you in our corner!
Happy to support this project and look forward to the seeing the doc. So glad women's pro hockey is finally here.
Yes! I am so beyond excited for this Kickstarter! When I was a kid, roller and ice hockey were the sports that I was the most interested in, only to learn that they were boys only - No Girls Allowed. To me, it is not just wonderful that we now have women hockey players FINALLY able to play professionally and get paid, but that we have people willing to promote the sport and the league through media such as this film. I look forward to seeing awareness about the NWHL grow, and I definitely look forward to seeing this film! I have no doubt that you will smash through your Kickstarter goal. :)
Thank you so much for your and your daughter's support. She sounds like an amazing girl! So grateful to you both for believing in this project.
