INST MSGS

Show Summary

INST MSGS is a dramatic short comedy web show directed by Justin Simien and Mathieu Young. The show pokes fun at social media, texting and instant messages, specifically people's reliance on the technology to communicate sometimes very intimate information with one another. Every episode includes examples of instant messages that have been sent to real people. The show turns the personal short messages into short skits that are acted out, instead of traded back and forth. There are two people, or sometimes more, having real face to face conversations. The examples come from the production team who spends hours scouring the internet looking for conversations they can act out, or from viewer submitted material. Each show starts new with a new instant message and a fresh cast of actors and/or actresses, but the idea is still the same. The show sometimes feature a celebrity guest like Abigail Spencer from "Mad Men" in their short shows.
