      Steve, thanks for the chance to support this project. I'm thrilled to be a part of history and it inspired me to launch my project (I won't post a link; I don't want to be spammy). Do you have any tips for how to get the word out and how to make is successful?

      Thanks again for creating a great movie that I was happy to see, review and recommend to my friends. I appreciated the phone call.

    2. Creator adam glynn-finnegan on April 15, 2012

      Does anyone know if there are any UK showings?

    3. Creator PhilTomson on March 23, 2012

      I remember reading something about a showing for backers at the Bagdad Theater in Portland coming up in April ( I think it's the 10th). Are there any more details about this? Do we just show up and tell them we're backers? What do we need to know?

    4. Creator Tim Hamm on March 13, 2012

      Just to add to the list, I also haven't received the signed poster. I got the phone call from Steve, but had forgotten that the poster was part of my pledge. Now seeing that others are also waiting, I thought maybe I need to let you know. Any chance there are still some available? Thanks.

    5. Creator Michael Raburn on February 25, 2012

      Seeing that there is a screening tour, and coming here to Raleigh on 3/5. Is this open to us backers? How does one go about getting a ticket to this?

    6. Creator Jana Walker on January 18, 2012

      I have wanted to become an associate producer. I am already a backer. I have already paid $50. But, when I go to that link on the e-mail that was sent to me to become a producer, it says that I am not a backer. What is the problem? I have sent you a message but got no response. :( Not feeling the love.

    7. Creator Christina Candelaria on January 10, 2012

      Now that there is a release date, Is there info for those of us attending the Portland screeening? I apolgize if this info has been posted somewhere. I can't find it.

    8. Creator Steve Taylor on December 29, 2011

      Amy! I'm so sorry. And I certainly hope you're the only one. Let me forward this to Zach & Jonathan and we'll get back to you to make sure we've got your correct address. Thanks, and please accept our apologies.
      Steve

    9. Creator Amy Aldy on December 23, 2011

      I have not received my poster yet, am I the only one?

    10. Creator Allison Mackey on November 18, 2011

      :) just got my personal thank you email phone call from Steve - looking forward to the April release!!!!

    11. Creator Steve Taylor on September 6, 2011

      Jennie!
      I don't know what happened, and I'm hoping you're the only one. We will send you an email to make sure we've got your correct address and get you your poster post(er) haste.
      All apologies,
      Steve

    12. Creator Jennie Dunnett on September 6, 2011

      I still haven't received my poster... haha. Am I the only one? And have they all been shipped out?

    13. Creator Christina Candelaria on August 22, 2011

      Any updates for us? It's been so quiet.

    14. Creator Paul Castiglia on June 19, 2011

      Has anyone else noticed the teaser trailer is now up? Lookin' good to me - check it out at http://youtu.be/e-EEzBTui8w and share your thoughts - interested to hear what other backers think...

    15. Creator Nicole Villacres on April 17, 2011

      Okay, I am a goober. I was just out in my garage and found a mislaid pile of mail and guess what was in there...my package from Zach. Thanks, you guys! And sorry for my mistake!

    16. Creator matt flowers on April 5, 2011

      I must agree with Mr. Rocker....I love the updates. You guys rock!

    17. Creator Justin Ronald Thomas Rocker on April 5, 2011

      Your update is among the coolest things I have ever read.
      Thank you! And I'm surprised you offer incentives in the first place... so there it is! TTYL, apparently!

    18. Creator Jon Mertz on April 5, 2011

      Thanks for the update. Also, great quote in Neue magazine. Look forward to the movie!

    19. Creator Beth Morey on April 5, 2011

      Thanks, Steve! Btw, your phone call made my day. Double thanks!

    20. Creator Paul H. Ting on April 4, 2011

      Hmm...came here for same reason - wondering about the poster, which I have not received yet. I *have* received everything else I was supposed to receive...so that is a good thing...are the posters still delayed?

    21. Creator Brad Saunders on March 29, 2011

      I haven't received my phone call either, and thought I'd check here to see if it was a common thing. I just figured it may have been that I'm in Australia. Looks like it's just a matter of being patient though. Still super excited to have been part of this :)

    22. Creator Katrina T on March 25, 2011

      Hey looks like I am not the only one who hasn't received part of my package. I did get a very nice phone call from Steve Taylor and I got a couple of stickers but I think my shirt got lost in the mail. Is there anyway to see if it got returned? Not sure what to do. Thanks for any help!!

    23. Creator Juan Carlos Baez on March 7, 2011

      I haven't gotten a call or the package. Good to know I'm not the only one. With the filming wrapping up I guess they'll start happening soon.

    24. Creator sean mclean on March 7, 2011

      Any updates on pledge items? I believe my friend received a t-shirt, but I have not received a poster? Nevertheless, I am glad the movie is inching closer to being in a theatre near you--it will be epic.

    25. Creator Stephen & Jessica Tuitt (deleted) on March 5, 2011

      I came online to see about if there was any updates about our package, I see we aren't the only ones who haven't received it - which is a good thing I guess :)

      Looking forward to hearing more updates on the movie and for the movie itself!

    26. Creator Heulwen Fowler on March 2, 2011

      I haven't received my package or my phonecall yet. I'm in the UK - just wondered if there's any word on this thanks :)

    27. Creator Nicole Villacres on February 28, 2011

      I received my phone call, but not my package. Could we get a status update on the packages? I'm in the US.

    28. Creator Chris Heemskerk on February 12, 2011

      Hi Jenni, I live in Canada too and I also haven't received anything. I remember getting an email early January saying that there is a delay in mailing international. I am not sure if that is in regards to us as well.

    29. Creator Jenni on February 9, 2011

      Could it be that because I'm Canadian I haven't received a phone call and anything in the mail yet?

    30. Creator Jordan-Ann Poe on January 27, 2011

      Any word on when The Big Night will be?

    31. Creator Gil VanOrder on January 19, 2011

      Is it just me or could Steve pass as a doppleganger for the ice truck killer?

    32. Creator Rose on January 18, 2011

      Is it too late to be a backer?

    33. Creator Jen B. on January 13, 2011

      i CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT!

    34. Creator Nicole Villacres on January 7, 2011

      Scratch that. Just got my call from Steeeeeeeeeve! :) The darling even let me know why my package was delayed. I am so proud to be part of this!

    35. Creator Nicole Villacres on January 7, 2011

      I haven't received my stuff yet... any update or way to check on it? Thanks. :)

    36. Creator Joey Chang on December 31, 2010

      Thanks for the goodies- blessings in the new year and i look forward to the movie poster coming

    37. Creator Matthias Hues & Leslie Carleton on December 29, 2010

    38. Creator Karen Breitkreuz on December 23, 2010

      T-shirt came today! ; 0).. pretty.

    39. Creator Justin D. Covey on December 23, 2010

      So I hear t-shirts have gone out but all I got were stickers. uh ... now what?

    40. Creator Rachel Jackson on December 21, 2010

      Has anyone received their incentives? I never received any of it and cannot figure out why. I realize they are busy, so I'm not upset, just making sure I didn't miss something. I submitted my info when it was asked.

    41. Creator Gayle Schultz, Jason Sonvico on December 7, 2010

      How we doin, how we doin? How's it going...almost done with my lil indie...just catching up with yous....what's da buzz bruthuas??? Talk to me...Blessings

    42. Creator Brent R Jones on November 25, 2010

      Amazing response. I really enjoyed reading the book. Never heard of Kickstarter.com until tonight. As a former Christian missionary to Pakistan, I wonder how new ministries in difficult areas could be helped. Even the flood of Pakistan and destruction of 10,000,000 people's homes have brought almost no response. It is the largest disaster in the past 25 years. But a flood is too slow to be newsworthy. brentjones.org

    43. Creator The Art Factory on November 15, 2010

      Congratulations!!! This is great and very hopeful!!!!

    44. Creator Sonya Denyse on November 11, 2010

      What do you mean it is not a Christian Film!!!!!!? Just kidding!!! Rock on!! Looking forward to its release and the power of this story.

    45. Creator Chrysty Beverley-Fortner on November 10, 2010

      I drove by the set last night...I pass it on my way home every day! Cannot WAIT to see the film...I would have stopped by, but after dark...it's best I just kept on my merry way! Speaking of...Merry Christmas early!

    46. Creator Christina Candelaria on November 10, 2010

      "That said, it does not have a “Christian” message, as much as it tells a story. The film is not trying to convert anybody to anything, so in that sense it is not an evangelical film."

      telling your story is the most proper way to evangelize. a personal story of falling in love with Christ is the greatest Christian message there is. in my opinion this is the first ever proper "Christian" film. that's just my opinion. that said, i can't wait to see what follows. ;)

    47. Creator Lynn & Tracy Holloway on November 10, 2010

      Love the updates! Bless you guys....

    48. Creator Jonathan Hobbs on November 5, 2010

      slightly ironic I suppose... but this makes me so proud to be a Christian. It's nice that we can pull together and do something. Looking forward to the movie!

    49. Creator Thomas R. Dickens on November 4, 2010

      Congrats to you guys! You are my heros. You inspired me to join Kickstarter and try to get my project funded! I just posted last night.

      I hope my project can get the same positive response. I've all ready shot the film, and am stuck in post, due to lack of budget to finish.

      Best, Thomas
