“The Girlfriend Experience” was Kunerth’s second short filmmaking experience and his first foray into directing. As a first-time director, this could have been way outside his comfort zone. Fortunately, he had an immensely talented cast: Erin Foster and Graham Patrick Martin. Kunerth had worked with both Foster (“The New Normal”) and Martin (“The Bill Engvall Show)” previously, so there was an established ease and rapport. The 7-minute film received overwhelming praise from audiences and filmmakers alike, and Kunerth credits Foster’s and Martin’s chemistry and impeccable comic timing for helping to make this short film the gem that it is.
“The Girlfriend Experience” was an official selection to nearly 30 prestigious regional, national, and international film festivals. Having now completed its festival run, the short film now lives online at Amazon.com. Check it out! It’s free to Amazon Prime members.
