Love In The Time Of Corona
Love in the Time of Corona is a dark comedy that blends current events with magic realism to bring a story of self-love, romance and friendship.

A late night style talk show co-hosted by a human and an AI.

Artificial The Show Demo watch here.
STYLE OF THE SHOW
For the style of the show think the Eric Andre show meets the subtlety of Zach Galifinakis Between Two Ferns. We will have a combination of scripted and unscripted segments in order to give it that insanely uncomfortable and hilarious feel that can only come from authentic reactions. This will be combined with tightly scripted bits with special guests.
Half Hour Narrative Podcast
Ana-Marija Stojic & Roger Bainbridge
The girls of Camp Hehewuti had all heard the rumors of the boys’ camp across the lake, but no one ever had the guts to investigate until tonight. After lights out, five friends trek out in stolen canoes in search of a little mischief, but they find something much more terrifying. The boys camp is there, sure enough, but the girls find it completely ransacked and abandoned. Cries for help start echoing from the woods. As they venture deeper into the woods, they discover an evil, seductive, shapeshifting force that plays on all their insecurities as young women. A closeted girl is approached by a charming older woman. A girl who has recently discovered masturbation is shamed by an apparition of her fantasy person. This is puberty as Stephen King monster. They will have to confront the most confusing, embarrassing and painful parts of themselves to survive the night.
Ana-Marija Stojic & Jordanne Brown
Fuckboy definition from Urban Dictionary: “Asshole boy who is into strictly sexual relationships; he will lead a girl on and let her down.” “Fckgirls” follows three women in their 20’s as they try to have sex without attachment and SMASH THE PATRIARCHY. The girls develop a “fckgirls manifesto,” a collection of rules for the modern feminist. And they decide to take on “those guys”. The guys who make the patriarchy something they despise: “The guy who talks down to the waitress”, the “guy who seems like he is on your side but isn’t”, “The guy who thinks your skirt is so nice he just can’t keep it to himself, sweetheart”. They master the art of ghosting, one night stands, and overall not giving a fuck, but they’ve still got a lot to learn.
