    • Synopsis
    • ‘Awesome like Albert’ is a fantasy/sci-fi ‘found footage’ feature about a camerawoman who convinces her vain friend to be the presenter in her documentary in Africa.
      Albert is an over the top gym instructor who has an infomercial blog called ‘Awesome like Albert’.
      In his blog he trains his viewers how to have the perfect body.
      His friend Liz, a camerawoman for a local news show, is given an opportunity to travel to Africa and investigate Rhino poaching in Botswana.
      Instead of finding a Rhino poaching syndicate, they stumble across a battle between mercenaries with strange guns and what appears to be a magician who can hurl explosive light from his hands.
      They get an entire battle on camera and immediately find themselves hunted by the mercenaries.
      When going back to camp to get a battery for the camera, Liz is captured and Albert must man up and truly become ‘awesome’.
      Albert then sets out to rescue Liz, documenting the entire adventure as he progresses.
      Awesome like Albert is an action/comedy aimed at the MMORPG generation who spend most of their time playing fantasy games online with their friends.
