Congratulations to "Like Me" director Robert Mockler! The project received the most votes to win April'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:
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?
