Shoppin' for N.I.G.G.A.S
Guinivere answers an ad in Essence for what she believes to be Ms. Yasha’s dating service and finds “Shoppin' for N.I.G.G.A.S” a dating service insisting that every black woman needs a N.I.G.G.A.
Directed by Sarah Bellin with

"Gettin' my own Obama"
Corali, distraught over her stolen cell phone and recent virtual break-up, swears off technology and decides that if she is to get the Obama she wants he can only be found in the 90s-- when the President and First Lady actually met-- and before technology ruined our one-on-on interactions.
Directed by Barrett Hileman

Corali - a black female in her mid to late twenties
Serita - a black female in her early fourties
Diana - a white female in her early twenties with a british accent
