FRANK: A Twitter Prequel by @jonburroughs83

Jon has a problem. He was born in the wrong place to become a rock n roll hero. Living in a seaside town where people go to retire, his only connection with the 'real' world is Twitter.
FRANK has been described as "The first film to really get Twitter" by shaping its narrative via the voiceover of Jon's tweets. But the story doesn't start when the film does. Follow Jon & rewind back to late 2013 & you can immerse yourself in the life of @jonburroughs83. It's a Twitter prequel telling how Jon ended up on the beach in the opening scene.
Jon's social media presence is not just as backstory, it’s a repository for the writer & director's research that went into the film. It's a social media version of Kubrick's Boxes using ThisIsMyJam & Spotify to curate the music that inspired the film.
