Jon Burgerman is very proud to announce the documentry film he’s worked on as animation artist and associate producer is receiving it’s world premier at SXSW 2013 today.
Californian hip-hop duo Silibil n’ Brains were going to be massive. What no-one knew was the pair were really students from Scotland, with fake American accents and made up identities.
The Great Hip Hop Hoax (92 minutes) is a film about truth, lies and the legacy of faking everything in the desperate pursuit of fame. The American dream, told by people who’d never even been to America.
