Back in March 2013, Indiewire named the indie thriller “Like Me” as its Project of The Month. Almost three years later, we can now share a first look at the end result, which recently completed principal photography.
The film is a collaboration between production companies Glass Eye Pix (“House of the Devil,” “Wendy and Lucy”) and Dogfish Pictures (“Compliance,” “Prince Avalanche,” and “Like Crazy”), who funded the project as part of their Dogfish Accelerator program. “Like Me” is the directorial debut of screenwriter and filmmaker Rob Mockler. The plot takes on our society’s ever-increasing addiction to technology. Addison Timlin (“Fallen”) plays Kiya, a discontented loner who documents her own crime spree through social media, which provokes a disturbing Internet following.
Discussing the film’s production in an office statement, Mockler said, “It was a truly magical experience working with such a dedicated and collaborative cast and crew. Addison crafted an incredibly nuanced performance and brought Kiya to life with an unnerving realism. She never failed to surprise me.”
Filming commenced on December 1, 2015 all around New York, starting in Brooklyn before heading to Rockaway Beach and Woodstock. Check out the first look photo above.
