Having that awkward conversation is hard enough but having it with an idiot well that just makes for good comedy

[dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]he Unexpected Consequence of a One-Night Stand – Prego, an award-winning short comedy film by Usher Morgan tells the story of Emily (Katie Vincent), a young woman confronting a one-night stand (Taso Mikroulis) with the revelation that she’s pregnant. Things go from bad to worse when Emily discovers that Mark is not an ideal father figure.

Behind the scenes

Directors notes

I wrote, produced and directed this little baby with the help of Seinfeld writer Andy Cowan. Principle photography took place in New York City on January 17th.

This film gives viewers a glimpse into the mind of young woman as she confronts a one-night stand with the unexpected revelation that he is about to become a father. I have friends who were in a similar situation on both sides of that conversation and I thought that many people could relate and find the humor in it. You have two ‘kids’ who don’t really know anything about each other, aside from a drunken one-night stand, and now they are forced to come to grips with a new, life-altering reality and be adults about it.
