Congratulations to "Chasing Robert Barker" director Daniel Florêncio! The project received the most votes to win March's Project of the Month. The prize is a creative consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.
Here's a look at the film's pitch:
David is a photographer with a tormented past and a solitary lifestyle who now works as a paparazzi in London. His very limited social circle revolves around his work and a manipulative tabloid journalist, Olly.
One night, David receives a tip off from a source, and manages to snap famous film actor Robert Barker dining with a young brunette. Not satisfied, Olly pushes David into pursuing Robert Barker to get more compromising pictures of the couple. In this chase, David's past starts unravelling, and he's forced to face the damage that a tabloid fabrication caused to his own life.
