SKMY THE WEB SERIES
Representation is incredibly important, seeing people that look like you and stories that reflect your own has a massive impact on how you feel in your own skin, how you feel as a part of wider society, and how society feels about you. The SKMY web series was born out of a desire to see more diverse female experiences that we could relate to, something we feel is lacking from current mainstream media.
We by no means claim to represent the never-ending range and complexity of female experiences but we want to be some small part of the solution by creating something that speaks to and represents our (and hopefully others) experience of being young, broke, and female in London, which is both ridiculous, funny, and depressing - often all at once.
Two best friends and their mysterious new flatmate navigate the muddy waters of identity, female friendship, and millennial malaise.
With a self-deprecating, tongue-in-cheek approach to the often #firstworldproblems facing millennials, this series follows the lives of three young women trying to figure out who they are and what they want to be whilst living in East London.
Female friendship is as complex and emotionally turbulent as the most intense romantic relationships, if not more so. When you add identity crises, social awkwardness, nightmare neighbours, and tight living quarters to the mix you get situations that bring out the best and worst in people. SKMY finds its humour and heart in the grey areas between messing up and making up.
