About

THE FAKEFLUENCER is a feature documentary that challenges peoples preconception to the norm, a charismatic and well groomed presenter Tom Peter Gillespie take us on an unparalleled journey into the mind of a cryptocurrency influencer, and in doing so exposes our minds to the terrible inequities plaguing the industry and it’s most enthusiastic followers.  Filmed between 2018 and 2020 on location in Sweden and Australia, the film is a profound visually stimulating expression of Tom's discovery, and shows us that there are many parallels to be drawn between the global economy we all enjoy (or despise) and the new and shiny crypto economy where our children will grow up.
