iDildo ~ Now You See Us

“iDildo does the trick and you don’t have to cook it food or wash its sock.” Romina Schwedler’s latest comedy short film about certain aged women feeling invisible and often misinterpreted. She uses light and comedy to carry a deeper message.

Barbara Miluski and Caroline Ryburn


Now You See Us is is “a coming of (a certain) age story” about two rival actresses played by Barbara Miluski and Caroline Ryburn. They are both auditioning for a part in a TV commercial. They begin to realize that they have more in common than just a rivalry.

Film Details

This 11-minute film brings the best of age discrimination and a lifelong rivalry full circle. The women find common ground in the idea that the one line in the commercial is the actress holding up a cell and stating, “I only use it in emergencies.” The cell phone begins the conversation about women of a certain age struggle with technology.

Caroline says, “I have an i-phone, i-pad, and an iDildo. It does the trick, you don’t have to cook for it, or wash its sock.” They both laugh at the idea that they had made large changes and sacrifices in their life. Even that iDildo is better than having someone around.

The walls break-down when they realize that they are being stereotyped for acting roles. “Boomers” no longer matter. They were the pitch to crowd, changing food, and fashion. They are invisible now.

Light and Comedy Use

The entire film is black and white adding a feel of age. The dimness of light in the waiting area adds to the tension of their rivalry. The loss of light brings the cell phone use in the time of an emergency adding to the humor. The end of the film light is used to bring awareness to the issues that these women are facing

The phases of the moon photos in the room where the audition is to take place clearly demonstrate the many phases of life the women this age experienced. This is a connecting piece that puts the rivalry to rest and they start sharing their impressions on being invisible.
