You know all those ripped hunks we follow on social media who have hundreds of thousands of followers and appear to be living their #bestlife at all times??
James, a sexy, youthful sought-after Instagram star in high-society, and self-proclaimed ‘Trophy,’ is dumped by his wealthy live-in benefactor. Now he must learn that the real world is not the facade he’s built for himself on social media.
“TROPHY BOY” is your classic “riches-to-rags” story. It depicts the downward spiral of James – a spoiled, influencer and narcissist, who, based on his social media accounts, appears to have it all. But, just before his 30th birthday, his much older boyfriend, on whom he was financially dependent, breaks up with him. James now must face reality with no work experience and no idea where to start. With his sex-addicted best buddy by his side, James takes a crash course in living and sets out to prove that he doesn’t need anyone to take care of him. He ultimately ends up alienating himself further from reality and comes face-to-face with the bitter fact that if he doesn’t learn to live as an adult in the real world, he’ll never be more than a washed-up, unwanted accessory.
Directed by Emrhys Cooper, the 13-minute short is just a sampling of what’s to come. It’s being turned into a television series where the pilot has already been shot. Emrhys also stars as what the film is centered on, a character named James. It also features Gerald McCullouch, who starred in all three ‘Bear City’ movies and the popular webseries “Hustling”.
It is released now on Vimeo worldwide on October 22. Here you can see what u can expect:
