WATCH: Clap, a short film on Sexually Transmitted Infections

Allison Raskin has directed a short film, ‘Clap,’ starring Pete Gardner (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Dylan Gelula (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), now available on her YouTube channel, Just Between Us.

Beth (Gelula) is home on break from college when she gets a phone call informing her that she has an STI. Hilarity (as well as a refreshing amount of understanding) ensues. “My hope with this film was to destigmatize STIs and show my skills as a director,” says Allison. “If this does either I’ll be thrilled!”
Allison also addresses STI destigmatization in her new YA novel Please Send Help, co-authored with Gaby Dunn, a sequel to their New York Times best-seller, I Hate Everyone But You.
