My amazing friends Alexandra Roxo and Natalia Leite are currently in the process of making a comedy web series called BE HERE NOW-ish. The show follows two sexually progressive girls who decide to ditch their down-and-out lives in New York and move to LA in search of a spiritual awakening. And guess what, I have a small part in the show too, playing a new-agey lesbian, yay! The project is amazing so far, and they’ve just launched a Kickstarter in order to raise funds to finish filming their sexy/lolz/queer masterpiece. Above is their Kickstarter video, which includes the show’s trailer!
Here’s what Alexandra and Natalia have to say about their series: “We wanted to create a show that openly, without judgement or taboo, shows the absurdity and depth of the exploration of sexuality and spirituality, and how these things are changing for our generation. In a sea of media that comments on our generation’s pitfalls and strengths, we feel there is nothing that accurately depicts the world we live in … a world where managing to survive/pay bills/pay for $15 cheeseburgers and $10 kale juices on weirdo freelance schedules is “normal,” while juggling magic and meditation groups and dance parties till 3 AM. Where dating is more complex than trigonometry and commitment is scarce. Where people choose their personal pronouns, girls look like boys, boys look like girls, sexuality is fluid, sex is complicated, and laughter is abundant.”
Sounds good to me.
