Kickstart Sunday – ‘Like Me’

Every week on Film Pulse, we highlight a crowd-funded project that we think you’ll really like, and deserves some support. Not only do we implore you to contribute to these projects, but we will contribute as well. Kick your Sunday off right by helping support independent film. If you help fund any of the projects we list, send us an e-mail at feedback@filmpulse.net, and we’ll make sure to thank you on the podcast.

This week we’d like to highlight Like Me, a short film by Robert Mockler. This insanely visually pleasing movie tackles the concept of internet fame, and how far some of us are willing to go just to get views.  We’re incredibly excited about this one, so make sure you head over to their indiegogo page and show your support and make sure you check out the concept video after the jump. 

Like Me is about Kiya, an attention starved blogger who wants nothing more than to become a household name and ultimately an icon. She travels throughout the country robbing convenience stores for junk food while making fools of store clerks with her fake gun. She meticulously records her crimes and documents them on her blog. Through fetishizing a criminal lifestyle, and promoting a self-centered, superficial culture, she has amassed a large following, but her followers are growing tired of her routine and soon begin to push her to pursue more extreme acts of mischief. Things quickly escalate out of control. How far will Kiya go to become a celebrity?
