Home of the Bewildered tells the story of quirky family outcast, Jelly, the youngest adult sibling in a family full of crazies. Or is she the crazy one? Though Jelly has distanced herself from her family, she's forced to return home when her mother is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Full of humor and tenderness, Home of the Bewildered is a story for anyone who's ever felt estranged from their family, even while desperately wanting to connect.
Ideally suited for our target audience, Themepark is a female-centric comedy that's both fun and action-packed. On the surface a silly comedy about two girls (think Romy and Michelle) whose big dream is to be in the Big show at a Themepark, it’s actually a subversive tale of Themepark politics, betrayal, and back-stabbing babes. Will our innocent girls be able to survive the antics of the evil reigning Themepark queen and save the park from destruction?
Have you ever noticed that people train for just about everything in life? To learn to drive—driver’s training. A new job—job training. For athletics—sport’s training. So if we train for all of these aspects of life, why don’t we train for the most important relationship we’re ever going to have on this earth? Newlywed Bootcamp is a comedy about four newlyweds who do just that. Inspired by actual events in the lives of married couples, Newlywed Bootcamp is at once hilarious, universal, hugely uncomfortable, and profound.
A comedy feature about a wealthy Cuban “princess” with a chance to prove she’s more than satin sheets and luxury. It’s Private Benjamin Cuban style!
A Short Blurb about Short Films
A unique art form in themselves, short films tell a story without the rules of a feature film. Lacking the constraints of typical feature structure or audience expectations and attention spans, writers and directors can create a truly distinctive cinematic experience. Filmmakers such as Spielberg, Scorsese and Coppola all started their film careers by making shorts. Short films play at hundreds of short film festivals around the country and the world, on the internet, and on television channels like the Independent Film Channel, the Sundance Channel, Bravo, Trio and others. The films garner attention not only from audience members and critics, but also from other producers and financiers who like what they see and want to work with the filmmakers again on future projects.
The partners of Skirt Films are proud to present "Hard Shell," their first short film as a company. In "Hard Shell," we believe we not only showcased our talents as producers, writers, and directors, but we also produced a short film of superior quality, proving that we are ready to go on to make commercially viable feature films.
