Project Dad follows Sharon’s quest to understand her LGBT family through a two-way dialogue with her dad. Funny, poignant, and above all real, the film uses a mix of verité and interview footage shot by the filmmaker, and point-of-view flip-cam footage shot by her subjects, to answer the question, “What is a healthy family?” Springing from her experiences growing up in a supportive family surrounded by outside misunderstanding, the filmmaker seeks out other children of LGBT families, expectant LGBT parents, family law experts, and politicians from both sides of the fence, to craft a film that is national in scope, and centered on hope and redemption.

Shattuck wrote about her family and her biological father’s transition to living as a woman in the New York Times earlier this year. With 18 days left, Shattuck has raised $4,313.
