“Media Whore” is an indie feature from Aglet Productions that shines the spotlight on the life and times of Astrid, a veejay with her own unique take on the world of rock star celebrity:
“Media Whore” is the demo reel of Astrid — the next in a long line of idiot MTV veejays who have come and gone. If you thought Jenny McCarthy was a box of rocks, you don’t know the half of it.
In Astrid’s reel, witness her talk to former X member John Doe on the set of “The Roswell Files”; visit with Taye Diggs about what it’s like to have an action figure; and “chill” with Coolio and talk over onion rings about whether a three-headed monster (or “a monster with one huge head”) would win in a fight versus a dragon.
Astrid’s unique brand of in-depth journalism is creating new fans left and right — “Media Whore” took home a nomination for Best Actress in a Short Film (Ali MacLean) at the Method Fest. The film will touch down at the Atlanta Film Festival and several other U.S. fests in the near future.
