Storyline

Ava is a transsexual woman who has recently completed her transition. Her friend and mentor Joyce has long advised her to get her apartment "transproofed," a slang term for hiding all the evidence that she's trans. In Ava's case, that's a tall order: Ava came up through the club scene as a showgirl, and both Ava and her apartment are vibrant, sexy, and full of clues. Ava calls Joyce for a last-minute transproofing because her hot new boyfriend is coming over for dinner that night. Joyce races over to help Ava give the place an 'Extreme Ho Makeover' more in Joyce's aesthetic: plain and non-descript. Joyce reminds Ava that passing as female means blending in and not drawing attention to yourself. Both Ava and her apartment are garish and flashy, and they set to work making it look like a typical straight girl's apartment. Set to the pulsing club single "Next," they go from room to room, leaving no stone unturned: closets, medicine cabinets, bookshelves, and even the fridge. As Ava ... Written by Anonymous

I loved Transproofed
4 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As someone who is transgender, I enjoyed Transproofed. It brought comedy to a very serious question: Does one hide her transgender "status" to a date? Andrea James (as Joyce) and Calpernia Addams (as Ava) successfully portray both sides of that dilemma. Joel Lambert as Mike does a good job as Ava's hot new boyfriend. Ava asks for Joyce's help in "transproofing" her apartment: that is, getting rid of any "evidence" that Ava is a transsexual. The quick transformation of Ava's apartment in preparation of the arrival of Mike is complete and leaves Ava in a dilemma. Did the transformation go to far? Andrea James and Calpernia Addams founded Deep Stealth Productions, the company that produced this short. The music is also fantastic.
