How did you find out about the Good Vibrations Quickies Short Film Competition?
Researching places to put sexy films.

Tell us a bit about your film. What’s it about? And what inspired you to create it?
The film is about a woman who asks who girlfriend for an unusual birthday gift. It was inspired by a true recounting of an experience a friend of mine had with her girlfriend. I thought it was so funny I remembered it years later and turned it into a screenplay for this film.

Seven minutes or less is a pretty tight limit. What are some of the challenges in creating a short erotic film?
It is a short time to tell a story that the audience can have a stake in. Its important that whats happening makes sense fairly quickly and that the characters are engaging.

What’s your background in film or in making erotic films? How does making an erotic film differ from making a non-erotic one?
I have made several films with racy content. However this is the first one with an actual sex scene taking place on the bed. I had to make sure my actors felt comfortable with my crew. I had everyone dance with each other to Sexual Healing so that the crew was vulnerable too. Also I really wanted it to look more sexy and less pornographic and it can be a fine line at time.

What do you hope audiences will get from your work?
Hopefully it will explode some stereotypes about how butches and femmes respond to men. And I would like it to be titillating and make them laugh.

Who are your performers, and how did you meet them/invite them to participate?
Adriel is an amazing dancer who I met at Bhangra dance class. Kristina is a friend who, I realized one night, had natural acting skills.

Were there any funny or unexpected moments while filming?
It was interesting to work with the boundaries of the actors. Some of them were very specific about how much of their body they wanted to reveal and what positions they were willing to get into.

What projects are you working on now/next, and where can we find you?
We have a Bisexual farce in the writing phases right now. You can find us on Facebook under my name.
