Come Here Often?, directed by Christina Raia, is an off-beat short comedy film about a young man's endearing attempts to gain the attention of a beautiful girl in the most awkward of settings, an STD clinic. His struggle to start up a conversation is geared by his quirky yet pathetic awkwardness and his unrelenting verbal diarrhea.
Andres Monsalve and Emma Barrett.

The pledge/donation process:We are trying to raise $1,000 by June 13th to cover all the expenses of creating a film. All pledges help us get that much closer to our goal; although, if we do not make it by our deadline, Kickstarter will refund all of our pledges to each individual donator -- so each and every contribution means a lot!
We intend to submit & have our film screened at several film festivals, including NBC Shortcuts, and the budget has also taken into consideration the fees that come with these submission.
The premiere of the film and distribution of DVD's and T-Shirts are planned to commence in mid summer, once post-production is completed.
The film will be submitted to NBC Shortcuts & thus possibly air directly on NBC, reaching thousands of viewers. It is also likely to screen on Comedy Central's website through Atom Comedy Central Originals.
DVD extra's will include:
- Commentary with Cast & Crew
- Behind the Scenes Footage
- Full Length Versions of Mock-Educational STD Sketches featured in the film
- Production Stills
We'll also be featuring original music by Broadcaster!

Director's Artist Statement:
With my comedies, I like creating bizarre and absurd atmosphere's with quirky but endearing characters. I like taking the mundane and making it entertaining. I observe the world around me and take the scenarios that I witness or experience and re-imagine them; where everything is turned up to eleven, and yet it all seems plausible. I aspire to make my audience laugh in a familiar but completely original way. http://christinaraia.webs.com/
