Brooklyn has been called "The Bloggiest Place in America" and this charming, wildly inventive feature is one of the first films set in the world of Brooklyn bloggers. Park Slope cartoonist Colin Jenson has just broken up with his longtime girlfriend Kay Ho, a successful food blogger. Colin takes us on a hilarious journey back in time to uncover what went wrong over their three-year relationship, and who was to blame. The journey takes on a whimsical and fantastical tone, with eye-popping special effects and animation, as we step into the world of Colin's cartoon drawings. Is love duty and sacrifice, as they say? Or is it cartoony fireworks, as Colin would have it? Shot entirely on location in Brooklyn, with a soundtrack by talented up-and-coming Brooklyn bands, Colin Hearts Kay was created by the brothers Sebastian & Ben Conley.
