Congrats to 'Chasing Robert Barker,' Indiewire's Project of the Week!

Thanks to your votes, paparazzo doc “Chasing Robert Barker” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Chasing Robert Barker” director Daniel Florêncio. 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:

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.
