"Mōther's Creme Diaries" | Sketch Series ''PILOT''
Mōther's Creme Diaries is a parody and ode to the 90's Skinemax era. This series dips its toe in conventional humor whilst taking a nose dive into soft-core sketch comedy. Let's go where no series has gone before!
Mission StatementAs a gay independent film-maker (and recuperating Catholic) I'm on a mission challenge the landscape of television and film."Mōther's Creme Diaries is a grenade of creative (sexual) expression through comedy. I'm sooo excited to contribute to the community with this unique and hilarious pilot!
About The Project
CAMPAIGNING DURING COVID-19?
Yes, there is a terrible pandemic worldwide and lots of things are uncertain at the moment. Before Covid-19 hit, Mōther's Creme Diaries was days away from Seed&Spark's final approval. I decided to pause the campaign and see where everything was headed. It's been over a month since that pause and many creators like myself are struggling with how to continue to tell stories that offer laughter and hope. Indie filmmaking has always been a hustle so... I'm gonna hustle on. The point of Mōther's Creme Diaries was always for laughter and that's exactly what we'll do as soon as it is safe to resume productions.
WHERE DID THE INSPIRATION COME FROM?
Hitting puberty in the 90's (before internet) I had only one option to satisfy my sexual curiosity. That was late night cable programming (also known as Skinemax). Mom and Dad would be fast asleep before I came crawling out of my room like a roach. Then with one finger on the power button and the other on the volume I'd simutaniously push the remote praying the sound decresed quick enough to not wake anyone. Then VOILA! On the screen some big breasted blonde riding a midwestern hunk's stomach and passing it off as sex. LOL!!!
DEREK: Wouldn't it be great to bring soft-core back but as the comedy it was always intended to be? Loads of plot with no penetration.
GOAL FOR THE SERIES
Once the pilot is complete it will hit a small festival circuit while simultaneously looking for funding to complete the remaining five episodes. The concept of the series will also be shopped around as an anthology spin-off.
Storyline: Charolette Connors is distraught over her Mum’s recent revelations. She decides to start a call-in radio show helping other women journey through their experiences. These are their stories.
