First Timers is an ode to high school awkwardness, with our prude main character Anna (Sierra Green) wanting to lose her virginity to her meek boyfriend JC (Nick Merico). Also making an appearance is Dance Moms star Jill Vertes, as Anna’s suspicious mother, as well as a brief cameo from Peggy Glenn, AKA the “Tofucken” Thanksgiving lady.

“When you can tell they’re passionate about their work, it inspires the rest of the people involved in the project,” Sierra Green says of Gilbert Sosa as a director. “We felt that our voices were heard.”

Though Merico and Green are very open about their personal experiences being implemented in their performances, Sosa is much more modest. “I don’t have a lot of creative experiences to pull from, but I do have a very active imagination though, so that’s where the story came from,” he tells RIVETING, “I did not have to pull from personal experiences [laughing].”

The full First Timers film can be viewed above. RIVETING is coming off of a slate of other releases, with the hot new series The Real Ones featuring special guest Redman launching earlier this week, and RIVETING’s second short film Binary (starring Don Benjamin, from director Daniel CZ) releasing December 20th, 2019.
