In today’s world it’s not always about who you know more about who knows you. With Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat turning us all into social media zombies, new levels of respect start to appear. It’s all about the “follow” and in the new web series from FANTASM creator Kyle Kuchta he explores it to the darkest regions in his series FOLLOW ME. When two musicians look towards their future they rest it all on who follows them on social media. The first episode is available to see below with more coming in the future. Read the full details on FOLLOW ME ahead.
Instafamous. 100k followers. Viral sensation. What does it take to be an internet star?
Follow Me follows one young man’s struggle to be noticed by the world and the subsequent darkness that consumes him. The seven-part web series stars Luke Gunn as Zach Mullen, a musician looking for his place in a sea of online voices. When fellow musician Maddie Jacobs (Zoë Lillian) and Zach cross paths, they think making music together could broaden their fanbase. But is the music really better together, or is Zach more suited for a solo career?
Episode 1 of the suspenseful web series premieres today, with the rest of the season coming out November 21. “Even at 25, I feel like a crotchety old man confused by how far some people will go for virtual validation,” says series creator, Kyle Kuchta. Coming off of his horror convention documentary Fantasm, Kuchta teamed up with director of photography Steve Darby to bring the web series to life. “It comes from a place of fear, uncertainty and mistrust.”
The series also stars Toby Marks, with original music composed by Nick Anaya. The series creator, cinematographer and cast members are available for interviews or more information regarding Follow Me.
