THE TROLLS vs. HBO’s Silicon Valley
The June 4, 2017 episode of HBO’s hit comedy series, Silicon Valley, contains *several* elements (plot, story beats, character actions, vehicles, shot compositions, and even dialog) that very closely resemble elements in our film, which was first screened in 2015 before beginning it’s official festival run in early 2016 and releasing on VOD/DVD/Blu-ray in October of 2016. The film played festivals across the US and was the subject of national press, including a national cable TV interview, as well.
Please refer to the embedded video for a direct side-by-side comparison illustrating many of the overlapping moments in both pieces. Our film is available to stream in-full on Amazon Prime or in the Vimeo On-Demand embedded on this page.

About the film
When a TX tech start-up loses everything to a patent troll, they fight back the only way they know how. Using a centuries-old legal loophole, they obtain a patent for BEING a patent troll. With this new power, it becomes easy to find revenge, and even easier to find themselves becoming the thing they set out to destroy.
