There are those who measure their worth by the number of friends they have on social media. What might be the downside of all that attention? Director Andrew J.D. Robinson reveals the potential hazards of the Digital Age in his film The Becky Carmichael Fan Club (2018).

In the short, Becky (Gabrielle Banville) realizes that something has gone wrong when she receives a load of friend requests from total strangers. She doesn’t know who or what may be behind the sudden interest, but suspects that the worst is yet to come…


Gabrielle Banville is a complete natural. She’s able to convey so much emotion with just a look or a smile. She delivers dialogue well too, but this film’s narrative is best expressed through body language and meaningful facial expressions.

The use of both colour and black and white plays an emotional role in the movie. The switch from one to another signals a psychological change as well.

The film is a dramatic thriller with some elements of horror. The scariest moments come from real life situations that could unfortunately happen to anyone.


Music plays an important role in the film too. There’s some great stuff here by Niykee Heaton, Johnny Jewel. Glass Candy, Tyler Matthews, Ross Bugden, Chromatics, Lowercase Noise, Desire and Christopher Xiao. Music is central to Becky’s on-going dilemma…

The Becky Carmichael Fan Club is an emotional look at the results of identity theft and cyber bullying. Pray it never happens to you…
