Anything For Fame

Written and directed by Tyler Funk

Produced by Tyler Funk, Sebastian Mercado (North of Now Films), Shirley Vercruysse

Anything For Fame is a character-driven documentary that explores the social phenomenon of Internet fame and the unseen challenges facing those who seek to achieve it. Through the eyes of roof-toppers risking their lives to conquer urban landmarks, prankers jeopardizing their own safety to make their followers laugh, and models managing complex fan expectations, the film shows the challenges faced by a new generation of content creators. As fans and platform algorithms demand increasingly provocative and risky content from creators, our story examines the collective responsibility of viewers to shape the future of entertainment.
