The Feels is an online show with super-short episodes, released one-a-day for a month.
That’s 30 episodes total.
Instead of a big story arc, The Feels catches moments in the life of Charlie, a bisexual guy who’s got way too many feelings.
Tim wrote it to be true. Naje shot it to be beautiful.
It’s about what it’s like to try to get close to other people when you’re someone with all the feels.
It’s also about gender and sexuality.
We see the show like a live-action comic strip. Instead of a traditional narrative, it's a daily dose of humanity.
(Also, there aren’t many narratives about bisexual men, and that can make bisexual men like Tim fear he doesn’t exist. Does Tim exist? Is he writing this right now?)
