Meritage Pictures and director Jacob Cooney need your help bringing the 80’s back to life in their new film Pitching Tents!
Set in 1984, when lives were simpler and the hair was bigger, Pitching Tents follows a high school senior as his future creates a tug-of war between his no-nonsense father and his crackpot guidance counselor… until an encounter with a goddess helps him uncover his destiny.
A universal story for all ages, Pitching Tents is a film that transcends eras and can catch the interest of viewers not only because of its comic wit, but because of its nostalgic realism and ability to bring us back to the times when we felt most free. With the backdrop of “the best weekend ever,” Pitching Tents explores those moments of teen angst that everyone across the globe has experienced. From the excitement of adventure, to the sexual tension and nervousness brought on by your first crush, Pitching Tents will bring your past, present and possible future flooding right into your eyeholes.
Produced by Jane Kelly Kosek (Not Since You, Take Me Home), written and produced by Jayme Petrille (Becker, Rodney), directed by Jacob Cooney (Alpha House, Blue Line), and starring Nick Krause (The Descendants, Grimm), Bailey Noble (True Blood), Jonathan Lipnicki (Jerry Maguire), Marco James (The Vampire Diaries), John and Kevin Farley (The Waterboy) and many others, Pitching Tents will be a fun romp back to the ’80s that all audiences will enjoy.
