Stella is trying to get over Astrid. Really, she is. She just seems to keep getting back into bed with her, and anyone else she sleeps with just can’t seem to measure up.
Starring Charithra Chandran (Bridgerton, Alex Rider), Pillow Talk is a new web-series which follows a series of conversations with the people Stella has just been in bed with, in a comedic but emotional exploration of the worlds of relationships, casual sex, and millennial life (without any condescending meta-jokes about millenials). Stella, still recovering from her recent break up, tries her hand at one-night stands, casual hookups with colleagues and the odd second date. But nobody, from the fuckboy to the middle-aged Frenchman, can take her mind off of Astrid, who is preoccupied with trying to find her first postgraduate job, and struggling to figure out what she too wants from her life.
A new webseries
7 x 8'
This series touches on issues uniquely relevant to young people, such as employment insecurity, anxiety about the future, and the difficulty associated with finding one’s place in the world. It offers an honest and open portrayal of sexual relationships, hoping to destigmatise and educate.
Each episode of Pillow Talk features a different one-night-stand, accompanied by a different visual signature to match their character and personality. This allowed for huge variation on the technical side of production, using cinema-grade equipment ranging from anamorphic lenses to vintage glass, from crane shots to an episode filmed in a single 8-minute take.
