Air Sex Championships: Making Love Out of Nothing At All

Tweetable Logline: 

A feature length documentary film about the most bizarre touring comedy show there is — the Air Sex World Championships.

Elevator Pitch:

“Air Sex: Making Love Out of Nothing At All” is a documentary about one of the weirdest live touring shows that’s ever existed — the Air Sex World Championships. Air Sex is like Air Guitar, except competitors pretend to make love onstage with a partner who isn’t there. Also, Air Sex isn’t boring (Air Guitar totally sucks).

Production Team:

Chris Trew – Director/Star
Jonathan Evans – Director/Producer/Cinematographer/Editor
Brock LaBorde – Producer

Mikey Felton – Sound and Music

About the Production:

Air Sex is crazy. It shouldn’t exist, but there it is. It’s inappropriate, hilarious and surprising, but above all else it’s entertaining. And it’s done by a skeleton crew, working way harder than you would ever imagine. I want to make a movie that shows what it’s like to take Air Sex on a national tour and all the ups and downs that come with that, and figure out what drives people to get up onto a stage and make love to nothing in order to win the craziest competition on the planet.

Current Status:

In production.
