“Two Minute Kenneth!” follows a seemingly-incompatible couple through the rapid escalation of the imminent melancholy that is a modern-day relationship. Turning to extreme violence to resolve their conflict, Eugene becomes torn between a confession and satisfying his own selfish desires. Sexism and jealousy fan the embers of this twisted tale of delusion, rage and murder -- a tragedy that goes to show, you reap what you sow.
TMK! is one act of three in an adaption of playwright Seanie Sugrue’s stage work titled “Love Is Dead!” Shot in a traditional three-camera sitcom setup on a psuedo sound stage in Queens, NY as three standalone episodes of a television show that's WAY too risque for any network's rigid, conformative tastes, LID! very simply has never been done. We went all the way with the old-school 70-80’s sitcom format – the three-camera sitcom setup, framed it in a 4x3 video aspect ratio, added a range of VHS tape playback effects to both picture and sound, painted in a studio audience reacting inappropriately, even threw in commercial breaks with off-putting PSA’s and ads. It aims to be the TV show that every morbid sitcom writing room from yesteryear wished it could have been.
The film stars Alice Kremelberg (Orange Is the New Black), Ashton Foster, Al Thompson (Royal Tenenbaums, A Walk to Remember, Love Don’t Cost a Thing) and Patrick Scherrer.
