A note from series creator, Amy Aniobi:

Full disclosure - I was a smart girl growing up. In fact, lemme rephrase - I was a flat-out nerd. In your twenties that can kind of translate to "single." Finding new crushes, potential boyfriends or even random hookups can be a daunting task. And when one doesn't find "the one" anywhere, it's no wonder one can't help wondering...is it Match.com's fault? Or is it mine?

While relating my mostly heartbreaking but oft amusing dating stories to my girlfriends -- the failed dates, the failed messages about dates, the hook-ups, the break-ups and all the awkward sexual encounters -- I dreamed up THE SLUTTY YEARS. I realized that I, and my friends like me -- the over-educated, the suburban-bred, the ethnic, the awkward, the single -- we were branching out.  We wanted to party.  We wanted to have lots of sex. We just didn't really know how.  So wouldn't it be great if we had a guide?

Enter the fictional Claire McBright, the cool girl who's about to show my two slightly fictional nerds the ins, outs, ups and downs of the dating world.

Premiering this show on the web felt right, because that's where my generation of friends dates. So for any smart girl, be she white or black or Asian; sci-fi geek or "well-read" nerd; whether outgoing or shy, sexually desperate or in denial - whether Jennah or Andi - I want the message to be clear: You're pretty, too, and your best years are now. Don't waste the pretty. Pick a Claire to guide you, a hot guy or two to surprise you...and let loose.

Thank you for your support! -amy aniobi

this is how it starts!
this is how it starts!

The first two episodes have been shot and are in the can! The rest of the season is planned and getting written - right now, as you read this! We desperately need your help to complete shooting the FINAL FOUR EPISODES of season one. 

Costs include lights, sound, location rental, craft services, wardrobe, make-up and post production like editing, original music, audio and color correction. Every penny helps! All us sluts say thank you. ;)

Risks and challenges

Since we are strictly asking for money to cover costs and not pocketing anything, we're scheduling around work, benevolent actors and volunteer crews. I've managed to pay for the first three episodes completely from my savings. But I have $30k in student loans, y'all. And I gotta pay that, too!

This has been a rewarding project, and every dime has been worth it to me. We're okay keeping it small so we can do it. But that's exactly why every cent you can give is a HUGE help. Help us overcome the challenges to get our entire first season on YouTube!
