GoDigital crowns SXSW pic ‘King Kelly’

Plans December VOD and cable release for faux-doc

GoDigital has acquired North American VOD and digital rights to SXSW selection “King Kelly,” the faux-documentary style tale of an aspiring internet star that was shot exclusively on a smartphone.

Digital distrib plans a Dec. 4 release on cable and online VOD.

Andrew Neel conceived and directed the pic starring Louisa Krause (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”), Roderick Hill (“Louie,” “Law & Order”) and newcomer Libby Woodbridge.

Dark, hedonistic story explores the risky and disingenuous tendencies of the “me” generation through a series of video diaries by Kelly, who lures followers to her website through striptease.

“This is particularly relevant because the camera phone or webcam has become a modern diaristic tool for people, this style of shooting provided the authenticity, immediacy, and intimacy that reflects the lives of the characters and their desire to live their lives, unfiltered, in the public spotlight,” Neel said.

“‘King Kelly’ uniquely pushes the boundaries of modern independent filmmaking,” said GoDigital CEO Logan Mulvey. “We are excited to be part of this film and anxious for the world to see it.”
