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?
