Be Like Trees, a 95-minute independent comedy about perseverance in showbiz, has just debuted free on YouTube.
But is Be Like Trees:
A) A vanity project? After all, the three creators and co-stars – Brian Drolet, Chris Livingston and Jordan Eubanks – all play themselves in a story about a struggling actor (Drolet) now trying to pursue a career in comedy.
B) A demonstration of how to make a feature film entirely on an iPhone? The technology is said to have allowed the filmmakers “to be completely incognito around town, filming all over without anyone noticing, and enabling the movie to look huge.”
C) A charitable effort? Drolet says the film was inspired by his late mother, who passed away from a rare disease, scleroderma, but continued to paint and create art until her death. The producers are encouraging donations to The Scleroderma Foundation.
D) An actual movie that can stand on its own?
E) All of the above?
