Thanks to your votes, social media-inspired narrative "Like Me" won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to “Like Me" director Robert Mockler. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.
Here's what the project's about:
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?
Stick around for this week's Project of the Week! Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.
