The production team behind the hit HIV-themed web series "Unsure/Positive" has made their kickstarter goal of $7,500, thanks to generous donors like you (and me) who want to see what happens next in season two.
"Season two will have more comedy now that Kieran has decided to be open about his status — so more pratfalls, misfortunes, and twists are in store," creator Christian Kiley promises Plus.
The cast and creative team will be screening season one, in its original plot form from 4 to 5pm at the Boston Center for the Arts at Medicine Wheel Vigil today, World AIDS Day, in Boston.
This "labor of love," as Kiley puts it, started as a tiny class project while he was in a graduate program at Emerson college.
"The first page of Unsure/Positive happened in 2011 when I had to do a dialogue exercise," he says. "I wrote a short interaction between a patient and his doctor asking questions about what it means to go on meds. I remember at the time, my class, I hadn’t disclosed to anyone there. They asked a few questions where had I been open at the time I’d been a little offended. But at the time I just kinda flawed it and took the feedback as what an audience would ask."
As a result, Kiley lifted his short project into a much broader script, with an HIV-positive character at the center. What happened next, they say, is history.
