It’s tick/tock time for filmmaker Clyde Petersen and his Kickstarter campaign to raise $29,999 for his animated feature film project TORREY PINES. Right now, Clyde has amazingly raised over $25,000 towards the goal, but of course with Kickstarter, it’s all or nuthin’! So, if you have a few pennies, or a few thousand pennies to spare, shove them Clyde’s way. Why? Because this project is AMAZING! Here’s what it’s about:
Torrey Pines is a feature film based on a true story by stop-motion animator Clyde Petersen. The film is a queer punk coming-of-age tale, taking place in Southern California in the late 80’s and early 1990’s. Raised by a schizophrenic single mother, Petersen’s life story unfolds in a series of baffling and hallucinated events. With a mother fueled by hallucinations of political conspiracy and family disfunction, Petersen is kidnapped at the age of 12 and taken on a cross-country adventure that will forever alter the family as they know it.
In those awkward teen years, from George Bush 1.0 to Bill Clinton to George Bush 2.0, it’s a time of technological growth in American homes. Desktop computer and personal cell phone use is on the rise. Our culture transforms from a place where a person talking to themselves alone in public is labeled as “crazy,” to a time where you are an outcast if you don’t have a mobile phone and it is perfectly acceptable to rant and rave in public to an invisible person.
There is a Gulf War that never ends. A baby trapped in a well. The rise of Star Trek: TNG, the future we had all hoped for. Linda Hamilton’s television show Beauty and the Beast introduces us to a city we only dreamt existed under our own. The arrival of Melrose Place, introducing a new generation of middle schoolers to ideas of intimacy and a generation of nerds strengthening their thumbs on a Nintendo controller.
Join Petersen as he takes you back to a time when MTV changed history of music television and Garth Brooks was the best-selling artist in the entire world. Put on your swim trunks, grab your boogie board and come enjoy the view at Torrey Pines. Shit’s about to get real.
