Decide Who Talks to the Tribeca Film Institute! Who Will Be April's Project of the Month?

April showers have come and gone, and it’s now time to choose one of our Projects
of the Week to be named April’s Project of the Month. The project
that receives the most votes for Project of the Month will receive a
consultation from our Project of the Month partner, Tribeca Film

Voting will be open until Friday May 10 at 5 PM Eastern.

“Like Me”

Like Me is about Kiya, an attention starved loner who wants nothing more
than to become famous. She travels throughout the country robbing
convenience stores for junk food while recording her crimes with her
cell phone. Kiya uses the internet as a platform to reinvent herself as a
modern day outlaw.

She makes fools of store clerks with her fake guns, binges on copious
amounts of sugar, and searches for validation through social media while
exploiting the voyeur in all of us. How far will she go to become a celebrity?


No one is who they seem. Not even you.

TEN is a collectivist, post-exploitation psychological thriller devised
as a possible explanation for the events of the 1972 Spektor Island
Massacre. On a cold December afternoon, ten women arrive at a mansion on
Spektor Island, famed for years of reported hauntings and strange

The all-female cast film is a response to exploitation, slasher, and
thriller films, with particular focus on the storytelling prominent in
b-movies and genre films from the 1950s-1980s. It explores the meaning
and fluidity of identity and takes a number of surprising turns.

“Who We Were and Where We Lived”

“Who We Were and Where We Lived” is a short film set in the childhood imagination of Pip, a young boy living in the heart of Brooklyn. Pip romanticizes history, longing to live in another era, where–in his eyes–things were perfect and exciting, and big historic moments were made.

With the arrival of his twelfth birthday, Pip is forced to give up his
fantasies of the past, come to terms with the reality of his own
circumstances, and learn to appreciate the present day.

Pip must find a way to make his own history, rather than live in someone else’s.

“The Miguel Sano Story”

At 15 years old Miguel Sano was plucked from obscurity and poverty
in the Dominican Republic and put on a path towards the Majors. Today he
is one of baseball’s top prospects and could be a star in the Big
Leagues in a few short years. But baseball is the easy part. Miguel
faces a jarring acculturation to American life, a painful separation
from his family and a growing web of hangers-on seeking to capitalize on
his success. We will tell, for the first time ever on film, the
complete story of a major athlete’s rise from anonymity to superstardom.

“U R Not Alone”

Set in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Joe’s trinket shop symbolizes a fusion of
two worlds: where antiquated American-Italian ideals meet young liberal

U R Not Alone depicts the evolution of an unlikely friendship between
this controversial man and two young women and continues with their
dilemma once he is arrested. As they delve deeper into investigating
Joe’s crimes and past, they bring audiences on their moral roller
coaster ride – questioning the intrinsic societal predicaments he stands

Like Me is for me.

I like who were where we lived.


Like Me has a very unique feel to it. It's something so realistic, it grabs from many places. From the teen in you to the little innocence in you.


LIKE ME all the way for sure! Innovative, socially relevant, made with passion and an amazing concept trailer shot for $200!!! That's talent. I really hope they make it!!!!

Good Luck


The idea seems great – who we were and where we lived. Gives an idea of the intellecutal approach of the writer and then the filmmakers who transformed the idea into a movie. Let us all watch it!

LIKE ME. all the way.



Movies are one of the most powerful ways of telling a story. Robert Mockler has the creativity, passion and attention to detail that place him among the next generatiion of great cinematic storytellers. His LIKE ME project has genuine punch, power and flavor. I can see him in the next few years making a major impact on the national and international entertainment scene. Keep an eye on this gentleman. He's got game.

Hey Indiewire,

Our project, LIKE ME, won Project of the Week on April 1st with 670 votes. We were supposed to be in the running for this month’s project of the month. We were extremely excited for the opportunity and we are curious why we aren't in this poll. Could you explain?
