What is nërd pörn?

Last year, these two guys decided to start putting ideas together:

On the left is David Willis.  The other guy is Kevin Kittridge.

It was love at first write.

We tossed out some ideas.  Mine were all HILARIOUS.  To be honest, Dave needed a bit of help but was excited to learn. 

We fleshed out several outlines for sketches and actually started to write them.  Like…the lines and stuff.  We were wondering what to call ourselves and Dave’s friend Gavin Hignight suggested Nerd Porn.  Dave and I both loved it.  “Stuff that gets nerds excited”.  Dave’s friend Timothy McAuliffe put together the logo based off our ideas and did a friggin’ PHENOMENAL job!:

One day Dave was reading movie news online and saw that Charlize Theron was going to be in the next Mad Max flick.  He got pretty excited.  Like…very excited.

It moved.

So he wrote up a quick sketch about me catching him jerking off after hearing the news.  It was funny!  Quick and easy to shoot.  We knew we could do this.

** Quick note:  although an integral part of the title, less than 70 percent of our material will be pornographic **

During this time I was still reeling from the end of my marriage.  While in my bedroom laying in a mixture of spilt Jack Daniels, used (very used) Kleenexes and my own self pity I came up with the idea for nërd pörn’s first official short:  Custody.  For that I needed a wife.  Luckily I’m surrounded by talent in my improv class and the lovely Rebecca Rios stepped in.   She accepted pretty much based on the last line… which was later cut.  She offered up her ADORABLE nephew to play our kid and it was on!

My incredibly gifted friend and brother in law Rick animated the logo to my request and it looks friggin’ great!

Some final touches to the name itself – put it in lower case, throw in some umlauts (Crüe style!) and we’re golden.

Or on Youtube [it’s very hard to put up a page on Youtube with the word “porn” in the title – we had to get creative] at

And now I present to you… the first offering from nërd pörn:

Custody

One down, our imagination to go,

Kev
