Rent a Friend is...
... a web series created by Emily Lowinger and Sophie Worm. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, this series intends to convey the trials and tribulations of Fran's day job with the ever present question: what happens when friendship is a commodity?
Sophie's background is in graphics & editing. She studied animation at California College of the Arts and has since worked for some of New York's top post-production houses. When she's not cutting spots for web & TV, you can probably find her creating breathtaking illustrations.
Emily's background is in performance and comedic writing. After attending a performing arts high school, she went on to study French literature because reading in English was too easy. She studied at UCB and has performed stand up, improv & sketch comedy all over New York City. In 2014 she wrote her own show, Slam Up, which had over 100 performances across the US & Canada.
Our first collaboration together was a music video for Emily's performance project. We bonded over how much we each enjoy storytelling in our respective mediums. Since then, business and pleasure have merged and we are so excited for our next collaboration.
