We Are The Prototypes, a female-directed mockumentary about a synthpop band that becomes famous thanks to a cat video, will Premiere at Dances With Films in Hollywood.
We Are The Prototypes is a narrative comedic short that is sure to be a favorite with music lovers and cat lovers alike. With heavy nods to the mockumentary style of Christopher Guest, We Are The Prototypes marks itself as This Is Spinal Tap for the YouTube generation. A combination of interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and concert performances gives an inside look at The Prototypes’ journey from metal band obscurity to synthpop stardom as the trailblazing founders of I.F.E. (Intelligent Feline Electronica). With its fun and colorful fast-paced comedic style, the film cleverly addresses changes in the music industry, the phenomenon of Internet fame, and the waning interest in musicians who actually play instruments—but it’s all in good fun.
The premiere screening will take place in Hollywood at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres on Friday June 8th at 2:45pm inside Hollywood & Highland at 6801 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028. The screening will be followed by a talkback with all of the filmmakers in the block. Tickets can be purchased in advance at: https://danceswithfilms.com/
