Have a question?
Yes, this kickstarter is the reason why I will never again fund an independent movie on Kickstarter. The failed promises just 100% ruined the experience. Why even start a conversation when you are not going to follow through?
Still waiting... Is this account EVER checked now? I didn't support the project just to get a DVD but I still would love to have a physical disk for my collection since it will have cover art and text descriptions that won't be included on a digital file.
I was skeptical about Kickstarter and crowd-funding in general. This was the first, and so far only, project I helped crowd-fund. Four years seems like far more than enough time to catch up on the backlog. Please help to make my only crowd-funding experience a positive one.
Thank you - WLR
Funny, I got a DM after my last message, confirmed my address... and still no DVD. I have moved now, but have mail forwarding on for the next year. Maybe 2016 will be the year I finally see a DVD?
I have yet to receive my dvd. I did get the poster, so I know the address is correct. Are you still sending them out or ?
I don't have a DVD yet; but then again, not sure if I get one. ?
Hey, guys and gals! How are you? We hope you have all received your DVDs and perks! Thank you, again, for all the care, support, and words.
As artists, it means so much to us to have the help. Please reach out if you didn't receive yours for some crazy reason; perhaps, the DVD ended up with all the missing socks from the washer and dryers of the world.
We thank you for your patience and applaud you for your support.
With apocalyptic love,
Got a message from Brea or at least someone on the team and my DVD is on the way! It's been a LONG time coming but I can't wait to see the movie
I think what bothers me is how this project is being pushed as now being on Hulu on twitter. Every tweet is like, 'everyone gets this for free, to bad about the DVD!'
Yet I paid for a level where I was promised a DVD, and now have nothing but silence. I have been tempted to post a twitter response, but I figure either it will be ignored or I will just be attacked by fans.
Feel the same way Dave Richard. This whole thing has really soured me on Kickstarter as a whole
I am going to try this again, I received my postcard - to the same address that they have on file. I have been waiting for the DVD, and now I am not receiving responses to my 'Contact me' messages. As a result of this project I am not likely to fund any future projects, or at least not at a level where any product is promised. So $5/10, and then I will just buy whatever it is once it is released.
No I'm from Illinois
Me neither :(
Is it international ppl only that are missing their Dvd's?
I still haven't received my DVD...
Still haven't gotten my DVD. Does anyone read this anymore?
Still haven't gotten my DVD
Is it going in alphabetical order?
My DVD arrived this week in good shape. I enjoyed the film and hope you have another project in the works. Thanks!
I received my DVD yesterday. Fortunately, my DVD arrived in good shape :) It was packaged in a manilla envelope like Brian's, but wasn't damaged.
Got my DVD in the mail today. Unfortunately, though, the DVD case was destroyed in transited. Warped out of shape and bottom back was cracked clean across. Absolutely no protection, just a DVD slipped into a manilla envelope. Could have splurged on a padded envelope for $0.36 postage it was sent as.
It's been almost three weeks, and I still haven't received my DVD. Have they been sent out yet?
So someone can go buy the DVD and I still haven't gotten mine yet?
LOL This was the first project I backed through Kickstarter and it looks like in gonna get my reward the last. But at least there showing signs of still being active. Unlike some of my other projects... A message every couple of months would be nice, so you know you have not been fotgotten / ignored. And yes, we're needy :P
The DVD was released for sale yesterday. Hopefully that means those of us who backed at a level to get one will hear something soon.
Any news on the DVD yet?
Will the DVD still be a two-disc version and will it still be signed?
First of all, please accept our sincerest apologies. For those of you who were generous enough to donate $25 and up to Best Friends Forever, we know you have been waiting a long time for the DVD and it makes sense that you might be frustrated. We are truly sorry.
What we learned firsthand is that DVD development and distribution is a lot harder and longer to get than we thought; hence the film being available on iTunes this year, and still no clear timeframe on the DVD front. The good news is, our DVD release is looking possible for Spring 2014; the bad news is, this is way too long for you to wait, and we know it.
You all are really important to us, and we want to make things right! We have been working really hard to set up a digital download option instead of DVD, that would be available really, really, really soon. Please stay tuned, we will be sending you an email when we have all the details so that you can opt for a digital download if you want.
Thank you for your patience.
Vera and Brea
Asked via twitter about DVD info and this was Grant's response: yes! just signed a deal with a dvd company. when they release the dvds, we will be sending them!
We could try sending a bunch of tweets to @breagrant... I sent one saying that I was sad that we'd been forgotten... I doubt she'd reply though...
If anyone wants to retweet the link is:
Starting to wish I had just watched this on itunes instead of paying for a DVD that may never come
If there's a problem with DVD distribution, would it be possible to offer digital download in lieu of the DVD?
I imagine at this point that it will be on netflix before they update again
Pushing close to four months without an update. Movie available to non-backers, while we still have nothing. Very disappointing.
Except for those of us who pledged money to get the film, you know... actually made :(
Haven't received anything yet too.
I still haven't received my DVD yet or this high five post card someone was talking about. I hope their is an update soon,and I've been patient.
I sent an e-mail a while ago asking about the DVD status and I didn't get an answer yet. It is really a bit disappointing to know that others have already seen the movie while we still can't. A friend of mine even asked me if that was the movie I had backed shortly after he had seen it.
However: I would greatly appreaciate a status update and an estimation for the DVDs. Please? :-)
I received my high five and a post card... but I think I've given up on the dvd I've moved twice since the survey and I doubt that even if they ever send it I will get it...
I just stumbled across Best Friends Forever on Amazon...not a preorder or a DVD or anything. But the digital version exists - people have been able to watch it online for a lot cheaper than I pledged for awhile now, and I have yet to see it because I've been waiting for my DVD :( Do we have any sort of timeline for those - I know you said back in June that those were becoming difficult and time consuming, but it's been a few months since our last update....
Any word on the DVDs? It kind of sucks (just a little) that the movie is on sale on itunes and other mediums yet most of us backers probably haven't seen it yet. Maybe could we get codes to dl an online version while we wait for the DVDs?
When do the DVDs get shipped?
I haven't gotten any of my rewards. Anybody know how long it takes for BFF team to respond to emails?
Trailer looks great!
Just watched the trailer, looks very cool. Congrats on getting selected for the Sundance festival, I hope the showing goes well :)
Looking forward to seeing the film.
Trailer looks great, can't wait to finally see the film.
Woo I just got my poster in the mail. I totally forgot I was supposed to get one. Nice surprise! :-D
Can't wait to see the finished product!
Got the poster a few weeks ago. Thanks, and I can't wait to see the movie. Thanks for taking the time to let us know that you all are still hard at work!!!
Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since you've heard from Team BFF, and we have been holed up in intense shooting, editing, sound design, special effects, coloring, the whole nine yards. We're finally taking a breath to send out some of your perks, so keep an eye out! And cross your fingers for us as we keep plugging away at finishing the film and submitting to film festivals!! Much gratitude, Team BFF
any updates? The other projects I have backed have been good with updates.
Oh, well, I only ask because it's been April since we heard from anyone. So, y'know...long span of time, no updates, anything could have happened. I'm just asking for an update...tiny, large, just something. *Anything*. Hello! =)
Everything Brea Grant related is awesome, how could anything be going anything BUT awesomely!
