      This showed up in my Facebook memories today from 5 years ago.... Did this ever get made? If so, how do I claim my reward?

    2. Bre McCoy on

      Never received the DVD, Skype Session, an invitation to the wrap party. All I received was the poster. Please contact me.

      I just have not gotten my digital download, I think maybe I simply missed an update but I cant find the link or anything. I just wanna see the movie!! ;u;

      OK, I see I am not the only one.... who didn't receive... I don't live at the address I gave, however, my father lives there and everyday receives something for me and puts it in my drawer :-) (I live in Italy).
      I see however, below, someone else did in fact receive the award... hmmm how frustrating.
      thank you for any info you can provide.

      It's been almost a full year since we've received any updates on this project, and about two and a half years since we all funded it. Is it happening?

    7. Nina Mortimer on

      January 2015 and I realized I've never received my reward for backing this project. Any updates? Anyone know what's going on?

      Hi everyone! Just want to say thanks again for all of the amazing support and kind words of encouragement. We are moving further into production and should have more exciting news this summer. If you missed the director's thank you & Tyra's electronic smooch ($10 backers), please follow this link:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bjornfloki/drag-dad/posts
      Otherwise, if for some reason you are missing any rewards or just have questions regarding the project, please feel free to leave comments here and we should be actively fielding those over the next several month. Once again, without you all none of this would be possible. Hope to have more to show you soon!

      Estimated delivery of rewards was November 2012. It is now mid February 2014 and I have not yetreceived my reward. What happened, did something go wrong with this project, or did you simply miss my contact details?

      I still didn't receive my awards. Please advise. Thanks a bunch.

    15. Björn Flóki Creator on

      Hey Allen! No worries, you haven't missed anything. The rewards are ready, we're getting them to Tyra to sign and will be sending a request for backer's recent addresses very soon.

      Thanks so much for your support!

    16. Allen Irizarry on

      Hello! Have the posters been sent yet? I didn't receive any email about the update, and it's October now so I fear I missed my opportunity because my address is not the same since when I funded the project.

    17. Björn Flóki Creator on

      Hi Deirdre! I hope you got our update a few months back with the latest status of the film, as well as the poster and a rough 9:30min sequence: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bjornfloki/drag-dad/posts (You probably have to be logged in to see the update.)

      The process of making this film sure is taking a long time, we couldn't agree more. Truthfully there is not much new to report since the May update - we are still in the process of seeking financing for the second phase of shooting, which is taking longer than we anticipated. The good news is there is progress being made and we (myself, the director, and the producer) are on our way to Orlando next month to organize the next shoot with James. I'm also happy to report that the backers' rewards have all been made and will be ready to send out next month! We'll be sending out an update as soon as we have more details on that.

      Again, my apologies to you guys, the backers, if you're feeling a little frustrated by the length of the process. We hear you!

      Please don't hesitate to get in touch here or via email if there are any more questions (bjornfloki@gmail.com).

      Best,
      Björn Flóki, director

      Time for an update.

    23. Steph Demers on

      Any updates? Can't wait!

    24. Aishath Nasir on

      Hi guys! How is your project doing?

    25. Björn Flóki Creator on

      Hi Kimberly & Allen! Earlier in October we had a successful week of filming with James & Jeremiah in Orlando, where our father & son have now moved in order to be closer to their family. We captured some great footage, like Jeremiah seeing Tyra perform for the first time (!) and some fun times with James and his "gay dad" Travis. James is now living with Travis, who himself owns a 7 year old son. It's a very interesting living situation and we are hoping to be able to film more later this year to get a more complete picture of James and Jeremiah's present and future. The story here is even larger than we expected.

      Thanks again for your support and continued interest!

    26. Kimberly Jackson on
