The short film IT Girl -a cynical take on question how connected are we as a community despite constant immersion in communication and media, according to writer Richard Gosling -is in the final days of its crowding funding campaign on KickStarter. Help make the film happen and find out ‘what happens when ‘likes’ are more valuable than anything else’.
Director Simon Lex says the film will help you question your relationship to friends, strangers and your mobile phone. IT Girl is a comedic satire set in the near future, and is ‘a warning of how social networks can foster extremes of anti-social behaviour’.
Here’s the story:
Since Libby McCallister went missing she has become a national icon. Her loyal fan base scours the country in search of her. Libby is the #1 trending story on all social media networks, search engines, and media outlets. Ian, a keen follower of the Libby saga, is about to make the most exciting discovery of his social life.
You may remember writer Richard from his Baby Bird short, which picked up the Best Bursary film at the 2015 Two Short Nights Film Festival in Exeter. Our very own John Tomkins caught up with Richard after his win.
And Simon has worked on The Exam with Chris Jones, who is also part of the IT Girl team.

Pledges start at £5, and rise up to a dizzying £1,000, for all those who want to try their hand at being the next big movie mogul.
