Inside You

Tweetable Logline: 
A romantic comedy about a couple that switches bodies after a night with a magical sex toy.

Elevator Pitch: After dating for 2 years, Jamie and Ryan venture into Miss Vizmelda’s Sexual Kingdom, where they are presented with a mysterious sex toy. That night, they try out the magical object, and consequently blow each others’ minds, into the other person’s body. Jamie and Ryan soon find themselves navigating the wonders and challenges of the opposite sex, making unexpected discoveries about each other. In the vein of comedies like “Louie,” “Girls,” “40 Year Old Virgin” and “Bridesmaids,” “Inside You” is a humorous look at what it would REALLY be like to be a boy or a girl for a day.

Production Team:

Heather Fink – Director
Shruti Ganguly – Producer

About the film: The subtleties of gender haven’t sufficiently been explored by existing body switching films. The goal of “Inside You” is to answer – what would it be like to be a boy for a day? Or a girl? We also explore the relationship dynamics of Ryan and Jamie and see how they are impacted by this wild adventure. We want the audience to have a good time and laugh, while opening minds about outdated notions of gender and sexuality.

Current status: We are currently fundraising, casting, and in pre-production with the intention of beginning principal photography this September in NYC.
