In the world of Synergy, you're either a full-blown Likechaser™, desperate to improve your performance on social media, OR you are chaser who wants quit the chase. Either way, there is hope for you! In Synergy, you will find your path, and there will be amazing people guiding you along the way. Like these:


Jay Trusk, a failed film director/budding entrepreneur, who has developed a system unlike any other. With Jay's help, you will get your desired likes, comments, faves, followers—beyond your wildest dreams! Why quit, when you have a chance to become more popular?


Lisa Bender, MD, a clinical psychologist, who understands the power of social media addiction and instant gratification. She has dedicated her work to ridding others of this dangerous drug, and she will go to any lengths to set you free.


Trusk is played by Beau Sia, a veteran of screen and stage. Beau co-starred for six years on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam" and is a renowned slam poet, who has won the National Slam Poetry championship twice. His comedic and character actor skills shine in this performance, as he gives the "American dream" a dark, new twist.


Dr. Bender is played by Calise Hawkins, a rising comic who has appeared on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and "Last Comic Standing." She has also written for MTV's "Girl Code," among others. Calise delivers a hilarious, tart-and-sweet performance of Dr. Bender that will make her unforgettable.


The film is the brainchild of the husband-and-wife team of Stacy Gueraseva and Travis Rust—aka West 19th Productions. Stacy is the author of Random House's Def Jam, Inc., which traced the remarkable story of Def Jam Records. She has written and edited for numerous national publications, like Vice, Billboard, Interview and ELLE. She is a native of Moscow, Russia, and has lived a bi-national life. This is Stacy's first film.


Travis produced, co-directed and edited Synergy. He has honed his keen sense of storytelling on such network and reality shows as "The Wahlburgers," "Last Comic Standing" and "The Real Housewives of New York City," in addition to a variety of programming for networks like NBC, FOX, The WB, Bravo, Comedy Central, and Discovery. He has also cut several programs for The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund, and has edited features and documentaries. Synergy is his second film.
