THE FOXY MERKINS is a feature length, female prostitute buddy comedy, paying homage to and riffing off of iconic male hustler films. This film is FINISHED! We want to get it to SUNDANCE and take it to audiences everywhere with your help!

WHO WE ARE: We are comedy writers and performers who previously made the film “Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same,” which premiered at Sundance. Of “The Foxy Merkins” team, Lisa Haas and Madeleine Olnek have worked in Downtown NYC venues doing original theater for years, and then they met Jackie Monahan when Madeleine cast her in their first feature. On the festival circuit with the film, they started to feel a little bit like hookers, and Madeleine had always wanted to make an homage to and parody of iconic male hustler films, so we decided to start production!

Hooker Margaret (Lisa Haas, on the Left) and a demented Mrs. Robinson figure (played by Susan Ziegler) get ready for bed.

Now we have been writing and shooting our new film, “The Foxy Merkins” over the past two years and played at "Next Weekend," Sundance’s first-ever festival in LA-- we had a great reaction, sold-out houses, and some people even returned to see it a second time! We were even more surprised when "The Foxy Merkins" and Madeleine were nominated for an Independent Spirit Award!  Our surprise turned into advanced shock after we got accepted to play at SUNDANCE 2014!

We are so excited about this movie, and even though it will be screening at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, we need extra money to get the film set-up for real distribution-- The actual physical print of our movie, computer drives for all the materials, legal fees, mandatory distribution insurance, print and advertising budgets and even the costs of hitting the road to promote the film -- it's a long list of things we have to get into place in a short amount of time, if we really want the film to have the chance of reaching a larger audience and playing at a festival or theater near you!

Margaret (Lisa Haas) and Jo (Jackie Monahan) get more than they bargained for.
Margaret (Lisa Haas) and Jo (Jackie Monahan) get more than they bargained for.

We will gladly accept any donation-- and thank you profusely. Our movie is about two lesbian hookers who wind their way through a world of bargain-hunting housewives and double-dealing conservative women. It’s a comedy! And honestly, the kind of outrageous comedy/adventure movie with two female leads you normally don't get to see!

So, if you are looking for a "good time," come join us as we try to get the film over the finish line to Sundance and beyond!

Thank you for believing in us and the film--

 Madeleine Olnek is a writer and director who honed her skills in downtown New York City venues with over 20 produced plays–all comedies. She is one of the authors of “A Practical Handbook for the Actor” (foreword by David Mamet), a widely-used acting textbook.  Her first feature, “Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same” (Sundance 2011) was called “hilarious” by The Hollywood Reporter, and is viewable online with her short films “Countertransference” and “Hold Up.” Olnek and her new feature, “The Foxy Merkins,” were nominated for an Independent Spirit Award, following their screenings at Sundance's "NEXT WEEKEND" festival in LA; "The Foxy Merkins" is an official selection of the upcoming Sundance 2014 film festival.

Jackie Monahan (a bi-coastal actor and comic who trained at the Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade), is a favorite at both Gotham Comedy Club and the Hollywood Improv. Jackie has featured for Amy Schumer for two years running, and was winner of Time Out New York’s Joke of the Year. She has also appeared on VH-1, Showtime, Comedy Central, Adult Swim, Oxygen, and Logo. “Esquire” magazine voted Jackie best new(ish) comic, and said, “She’s got the look of your friend’s hot, older sister, and the jokes of a deranged serial killer. She will kill you, and you will be smiling.” And guess what? Roseanne Barr called her “a fucking genius.”

 Lisa Haas is a playwright, comedy writer, and actor. In addition being in Olnek’s feature film “Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same,” she has performed in numerous plays by Olnek in NYC’s downtown performance scene. A recipient of a Jerome Foundation Fellowship, she has written and performed in solo pieces and plays nationally and internationally. Haas’ other film credits include “Dyke Dollar”, “Valencia The Movie/s” (Chapter 9) and “It Gets Bitter”. You can find her comedy blog on Curvemag.com.

And here is a link to OUR PREVIOUS KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN run by our Space Aliens Associate Producer Lucy Sexton: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/84148707/codependent-lesbian-space-alien-seeks-same

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We make cutting-edge outrageous comedies, and because of the working methods we use it is impossible to raise our budgets up front, since we do not use traditional the script to screen set-up. Therefore we take a risk and go ahead without all our resources in place, which makes our Kickstarter campaign even more important. We've done amazing so far, with our Independent Spirit Nomination and our Sundance 2014 selection, but now we need to get over the final finish line.

We worked hard to make our prizes as enticing and strange as our motion pictures, so we hope our kickstarter campaign will be alluring enough to merit your contributions! No donation is too small. Don’t feel cheap and tawdry giving $5 dollars unless you want to! Plus you’ll have our deepest appreciation as well.
