Principal Photography Wraps on Rob Mockler’s LIKE ME



Glass Eye Pix, the maverick production company responsible for a vast slate of captivating independent genre movies including THE LAST WINTER, THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, STAKE LAND, WENDY & LUCY, and THE COMEDY, and Dogfish Pictures, the Brooklyn-based film finance and production company behind COMPLIANCE, PRINCE AVALANCHE, and LIKE CRAZY, have wrapped principal photography of their collaboration LIKE ME, a genre- and mind-bending neo-noir starring Addison Timlin.

Timlin (FALLEN, 2014’s THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN) plays the lead role of Kiya, a discontented loner who documents her own crime spree through social media, which provokes a disturbing Internet following. Larry Fessenden (IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE, YOU’RE NEXT) plays Marshall, a paint-huffing motel owner who crosses her path. Ian Nelson (THE HUNGER GAMES, TEEN WOLF), Jeremy Gardner (THE BATTERY, SPRING), and Stuart Rudin (THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, STAKE LAND) round out the cast.

LIKE ME is the directorial feature debut of Rob Mockler, who also penned the script. The project was selected to participate in James Belfer’s Dogfish Accelerator program, which provided financing and business development for a slate of films, series, digital content, and animation. The film was also selected as an Indiewire Project of the Month.

Filming commenced on December 1, 2015, in Brooklyn before moving to Rockaway Beach, Queens, and Woodstock, NY.

James Siewert, whose credits include this year’s Slamdance entry THE PAST INSIDE THE PRESENT, provided cinematography, with casting by Sig De Miguel and Stephen Vincent (THE INVITATION, ENTERTAINMENT). The film was produced by Jenn Wexler, Jessalyn Abbott, and Belfer, with Fessenden and Peter Phok executive producing for Glass Eye Pix, and financed by executive producers Leo Joseph, John Gentile, and Anthony Gentile.

“Rob originally pitched the project to me via a Tweet,” says Belfer. “I found that really fitting considering the subject matter and the way Rob is presenting the dark obsessions with social media. He’s really got his head wrapped around this subculture, and I can’t wait for audiences to witness the monster he’s created.”

Mockler says, “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.”

Fessenden adds, “There is a real off-kilter genius to the footage. We’re excited to bring it into post-production to compose something truly special and genre-defying.”

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Sleepwalker is Now Available on Digital HD and On Dem…

THE GRAND GESTURE: That Awkward Moment

We bring on "The King of Cringe" for THAT AWKWARD MOMENT, something our guest JARED DOTSON of SOBER CINEMA takes issue with. However much to our surprise, he does not take issue with this not so well regarded romcom from 2014 starring Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller as three guys making a pact to navigate single life together after one friend's marriage ends. And while the romances don't particularly work here (except for the one with the great Mackenzie Davis who makes any role work) this boys club movie ends up having its own particular charms. Like a combination of ice cream and bourbon this one goes down easy in our latest episode you can find here and at the links below:
