This project is NOT about dating. Or sex. Eh, it kinda is. But it isn't. Let me explain...
What I am interested in is the way that people connect. What series of events need to happen to allow someone to open up enough to have a true connection with another human being? What happens after such a connection is attained? For better or worse, one major way that Millennials in NYC try to connect is through sex. That's right: SEX.
This series lets 10 situations play out in which you see 2 characters, both Millennials and New Yorkers, thrown into the timeless game of "Will we? Won't we?" Questions of desire, consent, expectations, and identity complicate each scenario in often hilarious and sometimes meaningful ways. "If I do this, what kind of girl does that make me?" "That wasn't exactly what I expected..." "We live in NEW YORK there are literally 2 million other guys you could be having sex with." Each episode is intrinsically connected to the next, just as we are all intrinsically connected to each other.
Please note: This series contains NO sex scenes or explicit content.
Here is the lineup for the daisy chain of hookups:
- Episode 1. The Whore and The Fuckboy (Completed)
- Episode 2. The Fuckboy and The Virgin (In Post-Production)
- Episode 3. The Virgin and The Nice Guy
- Episode 4. The Nice Guy and The Girl Next Door
- Episode 5. The Girl Next Door and The Womanizer
- Episode 6. The Womanizer and The Little Slut
- Episode 7. The Little Slut and The Hipster
- Episode 8. The Hipster and The Vixen
- Episode 9. The Vixen and The Gentleman
- Episode 10. The Gentleman and The Whore
We want to create the next 5 episodes and to do that we need your help!
One thing that is not included in the budget of this campaign are post-production costs. Editing and sound mixing are expensive and necessary, so every dollar that goes over our goal will be put directly toward our post-production costs.
Scandalous: A woman taking back female sexuality from the hands of male writers and directors!
- This series gives viewers the opportunity to see how female sexuality is portrayed on film as told by a woman
Adaptations of this play by male directors have ranged from lovely to ludicrous. Most have been consistent in their intent to use women as tools to entice male viewers. This series shows women who are more than just objects of desire --they are active agents in their own sexual and emotional lives. Ya know, like how they are in real life. Let's show that.
- We're bringing an awesome piece of classical theater to the most accessible modern medium: the web series.
People have always been and will always be, at their core, the same. We are excited to show that even in Vienna, 1897 people were facing the same questions surrounding self and sex as people are today. See, Millenials aren't aliens after all.
This series begs the question: In the city where you can be anyone or see anyone, who do you decide to be and be with?
Contribute to our series and watch us explore what it means to seize the opportunities of identity and connection that New York brings and bask in the intrigue of meeting someone new.
Risks and challenges
One of the greatest challenges of this project is being able to accurately portray the array of characters that we've created. We've spent hours doing research, workshopping in rehearsal, and creating mood boards to bring each of these unique New Yorkers to life. We're confident that with our combination of hair and makeup skills, acting dexterity, and a cinematographer committed to creating a new world for each episode, that you'll be able to connect and fall in love with each of these New Yorkers. As hard as it may be to fall in love with a New Yorker.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
