Allison Raskin's 'Clap' debuts on YouTube - starring Pete Gardner and Dylan Gelula



A young woman discovers she has an STI while home with her parents on college break. Based on a mortifyingly true story.



Watch/share on YouTube:


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. One of the main characters, Ava, contracts an STI and contrary to most YA novel plots, it doesn't mean the end of the world for her and signals a new direction for the depiction of the issue in young adult literature.
