About

ABOUT THE FILM:

Absolutely Positive is a dramatic short film that follows four characters, all from different walks of life, as they get tested for HIV. It shows the events of why they decide to go get tested, the thoughts that run through their minds as they wait for their results, and how they decide to live their lives after finding out their results.

WHY I WANTED TO MAKE THE FILM:

This topic has always been one of interest to me, and after finding out 3 of my close friends were HIV positive in 2011 alone, I knew this film was one that had to be made. It's a story that I wanted to display in a truthful light, showing that HIV doesnt only stick to one age group, gender, race, sexuality, etc. It  knows no stereotypes; it has no lines; and it knows no bounds.

HOW YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL BE USED:

Your generous contributions will go toward completing and distributing the film in the elements of:

--Color correction

--Final sound production/mixing

--Music rights and composition

--Compensation for the crew that VOLUNTEERED all of their time, effors, and gorgeous talents

--Creating promotional materials (printing posters, DVD authoring, press release kits, postage costs, etc)

--Film festival entry fees and travel expenses

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DONT GET TO REACH OUR GOAL?:

We wont get to keep any money raised. Kickstarter is an all or nothing method--if all the funds are raised, we receive them; if they are not, we receive nothing. If we dont meet or exceed our goal, the film will remain unseen and the hard work and man-hours of the cast and crew will become unnoticed. We feel this project is too special for that to happen.
