What's Twenty-Something?

 


You went to a liberal arts college. You majored in English or Sociology or Art History. You have a mountain of debt and no marketable skills. You took your graduation money and moved to New York City with only your dreams of grandeur, your parents' HBOGo password, and your two best friends. Now what?

That's exactly what Sarah, Jessica, and Parker are trying to figure out. No one quite prepares you for life as a twenty-something. The best you can do is hold on for dear life, keep a bottle of wine handy, and enjoy brunch every Sunday.

Who are we?

Hi there! We are Jen Flanagan, Callie Rose Hanau, and Stephanie Linas, the co-founders of Sketch and the City Productions. We are so excited to be producing, Twenty-Something, our first project together!

We met a year ago when we were all cast in a sketch comedy show in midtown Manhattan that was kind of scammy and very un-funny. This experience not only gave us some great stories to tell in the future when we are famous, but also made us realize that we have some pretty funny ideas of our own. We decided to get together to generate work we would be proud of and Twenty-Something was born! 

We are excited and passionate about creating original comedic content of  professional quality. We intend to use Twenty-Something to submit to tv/film festivals and online comedy forums, as well as to showcase our acting and writing talents to agents and casting directors. We anticipate producing further seasons of the show in the near future. 

Where will your money go?

Although we are an extremely low budget show produced by three very frugal ladies, there are still a lot of costs to cover production. We have set our eyes on the very minimum amount of funding we need to accomplish the project. Your donation will help us pay for the very basics of production, including:

  • Equipment rental: camera, lights, lenses, etc.
  • Insurance
  • Editing
  • Props and costumes
  • Basic food and drink for the cast and crew
  • Marketing and publicity
  • And much, much more!

Why donate?

Help us achieve our dreams! We are incredibly proud of the work we have done and are humbled to be able to involve so many generous and talented people in our project. We need your help to move forward! In addition to the warm, fuzzy feeling you'll get from donating, you will also receive our fun perks, listed on this page. 

How else can you help?

We appreciate any form of help you can give! Instead of, or in addition to, participating financially, you can:

  • Tell everyone you know about Twenty-Something! Word of mouth is the strongest endorsement you can give. 
  • Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vimeo.
  • Bake us cookies! Or bring any food or beverage to our shoots. 
  • Do you have a connection to a restaurant, bar, store, or any other location we could potentially use? Please let us know! 
  • Keep visiting our page throughout the course of this month for more exciting updates and video sketches!
