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.”
