FUTURE TEENS COMMERCIAL PITCH DRAFT ONE

WRITTEN BY:

CLIFF DAZZLE

BIG SHOT AD AGENCY

FADE IN:

INT. COFFEE SHOP- DAY

We open on an older man and woman in their seventies across the

table from one another. The man looks pre-occupied and

concerned.

ALICE: What’s wrong, Joe? Something on your mind?

JOE: Every since Cecil passed on, I’ve been thinking a lot about

life insurance. I want to be sure the kids aren’t burdened

when it’s my time. Do you and GLADYS have any?

ALICE: We do. But what’s really been helping us feel secure lately

is FUTURE TEENS.

JOE: FUTURE TEENS? I’ve never heard of that.

Alice slides a copy of HARD FEELINGS across the table.

ALICE: They’re a rock band from Boston, MA and they’ve changed

everything for GLADYS and I. People call them BUMMER POP

and it’s a label they wear proudly.

JOE: I’ve never even heard of BUMMER POP. What does that sound

like?

ALICE: It sounds like it’s 1 am and you’re on the front stoop of a

party full of people you barely know talking with your best

friend after you’ve both had a really hard couple of weeks.

JOE: That sounds comforting.

ALICE: It is! And more people are starting to hear about FUTURE

TEENS. Just recently, they’ve started working with TRIPLE

CROWN RECORDS and have played alongside notable acts like

OSO OSO, VUNDABAR, AARON WEST, FREE THROW AND BAD BAD HATS.

JOE: Wow. Sounds like I should get on board before it’s too

late!

DISOLVE TO:

Title Card appears on screen with a 1-800 number and rainbow

text reading FUTURE TEENS. Calming music plays and we hear a

soothing, strong voice read our tag line and ending.

NARRATOR: FUTURE TEENS: A COMFORTING FRIEND IN A TERRIFYING WORLD.

Call right away to reserve your FUTURE TEENS now. Don’t

delay! Supplies are limited!

The NARRATOR reads the disclaimer at a much more rapid pace:

NARRATOR: DISCLAIMER: While FUTURE TEENS may make you feel less

alone, in most cases they will not physically be present

during your listening. FUTURE TEENS formed in 2014 with

little aspiration outside of playing a Fourth of July BBQ.

In the subsequent years the band wrote and released more

songs, steadily growing more serious about their goals. In

2017, they released HARD FEELINGS with TAKE THIS TO HEART

RECORDS. Use of FUTURE TEENS may lead to random and

frequent crying punctuated with strangely joyful laughter.

FUTURE TEENS is not liable for any emotional distress

caused by listening.

Oceanator

Immense amounts of wonder and power are often found tucked away in the most dark and unpredictable parts of the ocean. In much the same way, immense amounts of wonder and power can be found throughout Brooklyn, NY solo artist Oceantor’s work-- even in the most dark and unpredictable moments.

Elise Okusami has been a musician since the tender age of 9 years old when she first learned to play guitar. Her current force of nature quality is clearly inspired by a lifelong intense passion for music. In the 4th grade, soon after learning guitar, Okusami started her first band with her brother and a few friends. She hasn’t slowed since then, also having drummed for multiple projects in New York. As she eventually grew into her solo musical endeavor, Oceanator, Okusami has exemplified the sheer power of her project’s namesake through and through.

The influence of her upbringing in 90’s grunge and punk is evident in Okusami’s introspective songwriting. This thoughtful lyricism is put into practice through brooding post-rock ballads like “Coming Home” and “Tell Me” and intense yet danceable synthy indie tracks like “Not Around.” Additionally, Okusami can often be heard engaging with some of the most deeply moving and existential questions of life in her work. A prime example of such a question would be ‘What does it mean to be human?’, which can be heard being contemplated in “Inhuman.” While there surely is a range to Oceanator’s stylistic approaches from song to song, the tremendous powerhouse nature of the project is felt consistently throughout each and every song on Lows.
