VINCE'S WEEK

A feature film written by Clay Horwitz.

A found-footage style dark comedy that explores existentialism, self-worth, and the modern Internet era that only someone who grew up in it could properly explore.

A conspiracy theorist turned Internet star is convinced that the world is ending in one week, prompting him into a quest of self-discovery as he tries to live out his final days to the fullest.
