Skin Flick by Norm Foster (2017)
A light-hearted comedy told from the perspective of Rollie, the story’s charming narrator, Skin Flick puts a steamy spotlight on a group of innocent people navigating the world of pornography.
Middle-aged couple Daphne and Rollie and their friend Alex have found themselves out of work and out of luck. So when they come across a mistakenly rented X-rated movie, they get the idea to make their own porno film for some quick cash. The only problem is none of them want to star in it themselves. As if on cue, Jill, a birthday telegram messenger, accidentally arrives on their doorstep and their cast is set.
Note: Whenever Rollie steps out of the scene and talks to the audience as the narrator, the other actors freeze in place until Rollie steps back into the scene.
