A man who lives his life by imitating others, is shocked when he meets a striking companion.

Imitator was made by Thomas Maas, Annick Sickinghe, Lente Oosterhuis and myself for Straight8. During this film competition, you shoot on a single Super8 cartridge, all editing is done in camera, and a soundtrack has to be added without seeing the footage first.
