The film is an honest and raw depiction of teenage life in Reno, Nevada and the perils of being a teenager in love and all the angst that comes along with a first love.

“The crew of 9000 Wolves has a unique insight into the minds and actions of the youth. I think this is what makes I Like You so relatable to our audience and every person who experienced a teenage love affair,” he continued.
The full-length feature film was completed in four months time on a low budget working with friends in the industry, volunteers and a skeleton crew. The makers of the film consist of Joseph Whitmarsh, Writer, Jamie Heinrich, Director and Editor, and Ryan Baker, Director of Photography.
