“We’re surrounded with so many talented people and we ask ourselves all the time: ‘How does this person create such good work, what inspires and drives him, what is it that she sees, what is he like in real life?’ We think a lot of our fellow followers share the same curiosity.”
Featuring Artist: Ryan Schude
“Although the work, the artists shares on social media, inspire and makes us happy, the digital world we live in is often criticized as volatile and shallow. We miss a bit of the human touch and perspective sometimes. That’s how the idea was born to make a series of small documentary films about the people we follow and admire. With our films, we celebrate the bond between follower and artist. We’re convinced documentary film can go deeper into getting to know a person better and might satisfy the curiosity we and fellow followers have.”

“The project is called ‘Like Knows Like’, cause we think it’s a great opportunity to showcase both the artist and our own talent. To make this project and its chosen angle of incidence a success, the documented artist has written, post, link or embed his involvement in this project on his own social timeline. It’s not about making money. It’s about sharing love.”
