Fans set the price of the first BitTorrent feature film release.
HITS, written and directed by David Cross, debuted at Sundance Film Festival in January 2014: a dark comedy about fame and delusion in The United States of YouTube, a true story that hasn’t happened yet. (But, pretty much inevitably, will.)
Katelyn (Meredith Hagner) is obsessed with winning a role on The Voice, and Internet stardom. But it’s her father, Dave (Matt Walsh), who ends up the social media celebrity after a filmed outburst at a local town hall meeting ends up on YouTube. As Internet fame infects and upends lives in the small town of Liberty, N.Y., Cross explores the cost of viral culture.
