A big THANK YOU goes out to all the awesome backers who've already made their donation via Paypal, we really, really appreciate it! Almost a quarter of you have already came through for us :)  Even though we lost the Kickstarter pledges, this film WILL get made! (And you can still receive the rewards as promised).

Because of your continued support to independent film, we wanted to give you a sneak peak at the new website created for the film here:


Check it out (you can also donate there if you haven't already)! Thank you SO MUCH and have a wonderful Holiday! 

Joshua, Michaela, and the Pick Up team

This isn't over!

Thank you for joining TEAM PICK UP! We are humbled by the overwhelming amount of support from the last 30 days! While we didn't make our ultimate goal, we did raise almost $30,000 in pledges thanks to 224 generous backers like yourself!

As you're probably aware, we also managed to create a stir in the media (HuffingtonPost, HIVequal, HIVplusmag, Imstilljosh, thepozlife, Elton Jones AIDS Foundation) and we believe now more than ever, this story needs to be told. So, we plan to continue prepping for production in early 2015. But we wanted to take a minute to clarify something important. PLEASE NOTE: Because Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform, and we did not meet our final goal, your donation will not be charged.

However, we hope we can still count on your donation to this exceptional film through PICK UP's Paypal account. I assure you this film will be made with the same quality and more passion than ever before!

Here's the link to the account

If you still donate, you will receive your rewards package and any bonus incentives you were promised through the Kickstarter campaign - we just ask you to take this slight detour so we can continue along the path to production.

We are forever grateful for all of your support in bringing this groundbreaking new film one step closer to the screen. And we are honored to have you along for this ride as we continue our journey toward stopping the HIV stigma and starting an important social conversation. THANKS AGAIN for your support and encouragement. And please don't forget to back us at PICK UP's Paypal account.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email us at pickupthemovie@gmail.com

Thank you!!!

The Pick Up Team

PS: If the Kickstarter would've been successful, they would've taken a 5% fee of the total and Amazon Payments would've taken 5% as well, so hey, maybe this is for the best!
