A few months back, a survey was published which revealed that 80 per cent of people between the ages of 18 and 80 sext.

Pretty shocking huh?

In case you’re part of the other 20 per cent, a sext is a pretty dirty text message – but we’re confident everybody knew that anyway.

Once a sext is sent, and climax is subsequently reached, is that the end? Well, for Canadian film-maker Eileen Yaghoobian, that is just the beginning.

Eileen turns sexts into films – and you can get yours done too.

For example, a set of pretty cliché sexts like these…

…Are transformed into scenes like this 8-minute clip of new wave comic hilarity:

To be frank, I think it’s pretty damn inventive. And it’s fucking hilarious at the same time.

Eileen is an established director whose first feature documentary, Died Young Stayed Pretty, about the posters behind rock bands, premiered at SXSW a few years back.

But it seems this isn’t enough for Eileen who’s really trying to push boundaries with her ongoing sexting project.

Speaking exclusively to UNILAD, the director said:

I have a personal fascination with sexting, and at the time this all started I was sexting a lot. It got to the point where I was sharing my sexts with friends and then the conversation started leading to, ‘it would be funny to see this come to life’.

The combination of it all made me want to go for it and do it! Its unexplored territory… I like the idea of combining the world of sex with the world if indie.

The material is hilarious and you really can’t make this stuff up. It’s infinite what you can do with it. It was amazing to watch the sexts come to life.

You must be wondering how she casts people to read out such sexts? Well, allow Eileen to explain:

I cast based on the texts. I think about which actors would be good for the characters and ask them to read for me. We go through the scenes in rehearsal and the actors are very much part of bringing the scene to life.

It’s probably worth noting that Eileen has not had any trouble getting people sending in their texts. In fact, she’s been inundated with replies.

She added (and she does seem to get a lot more open here):

I think a lot of things are hot. Water fountains are very hot! Having sex on the hood of a car is hot. Hooking up in a sports park – HOT! Grunting and playing tennis is hot. Girls and fire are super hot! Xmas and PacMan is definitely hot! So those are the choices I make when I create these videos.

Whatever turns me kinda on and off become part of the story but it’s important that the fantasy fits the text. It’s important that we stay true to the sexter’s intent in the text.

My goal is to do the best with the fantasy.

But creating a ‘hot’ scene is not all – as Eileen wants to create a lot more than that:

I also want people to laugh but I have no problems with someone getting off at the same time – it’s even better.

I want them to laugh so loud and get turned on at the same time. You can tell a lot about a person’s character from the sexy words they choose to sext. The texts for Johnny and Brenda are really graphic in their sexual language.

A funny story about filming on location for that particular scene is that these old ladies were playing tennis and after 15 minutes or so, they shouted out to us to take a coffee break because they couldn’t handle the sexual language. They couldn’t listen to it.

It would have been the same if Johnny and Brenda were having phone sex in public.

Eileen finished the interview by saying:

What’s amazing about sexting is that once you hit send it’s not made up any more. It’s real now. That’s where the story lies. It’s the narrative aspect that interests me most.

And she’s right. The sexts make for brilliant videos. They’re exciting, hilarious, contemporary, and pretty damn hot at the same time.

Fortunately, the director doesn’t plan on stopping the campaign any time soon, she’s merely hoping for her clips to go global – and we can see exactly that happening any time soon.
