Surprise Issues is a comedic art television show about a teenage babysitter who mostly ignores her duties while hosting bad friends and epic coming of age fires.
Little does the sitter know that the baby was sent to earth by aliens (Swedish speaking Grateful Dead bears) to collect information on typical human life. Little do the aliens know that teenage girl life is neither typical nor humane.
There is also a fortune telling wolverine.
This project is all shot on VHS to communicate the homemade secret performance bloopers of youth past and sitcom past. Distorting recent decades' tropes of teendom, we are talking about the fading elastic on the women's control top. Magnifying grotesque embarrassments with obsessive ambivalence leads to liftoff and rollover. Muffin top o' the mornin' to ya!
Episode #1 is about a first zit, a first period, Halloween, death, gossip and longing.
We need a modest pool of money to purchase a VHS to digital converter, a light kit, and props.
