“GET BIG” COMING TO DIGITAL ON DEMAND APRIL 20, 2019, WITH DISTRIBUTION BY GRAVITAS VENTURES IN DEAL WITH PELICAN CLUB PICTURES
Coming-of-age comedy to be released across multiple digital platforms including iTunes and Amazon Prime Video.
Hollywood, CA – The new coming-of-age comedy, GET BIG, blazes onto digital platforms on April 20, 2019, from Pelican Club Pictures with distribution by Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company. Inspired by ‘somewhat true events,’ the premiere feature film from Dylan Moran of USC School of Cinematic Arts alumni, will be available digitally on platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, Vimeo, Xbox, and Vudu. Video on demand platforms will include Verizon, Cox, Frontier, Mediacom, Suddenlink, Telus, Shaw, and Eastlink TV.
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Gravitas Ventures,” says Moran, “Their enthusiasm and passion for this film has been invigorating. I am absolutely confident that they will be able to introduce this story to wide audiences that will truly connect with it.”
GET BIG follows the misadventures of two college-age friends as they reconnect for a classmate's wedding. The pair embark on a mischievous 24-hours of laugh-out-loud antics, suspenseful humor, and nervous shenanigans while encountering their fair share of pretty girls, kooky drug dealers, and misfit cops. Tanner Stine (Run The Race, Impulse) as Alec, is the charming troublemaker, while Nate, played by 24-year-old writer/director Moran, provides the neurotic and awkward foil to his friend's unpredictable antics. Like many young adults, they find themselves at the uncomfortable crossroads of maturity and arrested development, hanging on and giving true meaning to the notion that ‘some buds never age.’
Shot over fourteen days in Southern California on a shoestring budget, GET BIG has already produced breakout success for Moran with its theatrical premiere, receiving a coveted response from moviegoers, film festivals, major theatre chains, and reputable publications. A testament to Moran’s on-screen vision and the team he’s assembled. “What I love about this story is how brutally honest it is. Not just because most of these things really happened to me, but because it exposes a lot of the feelings and humorous experiences that my friends and I have had. These two characters are incredibly immature, but I think through the ups and downs of this roller coaster of a day, they are able to grow a bit together,” says Moran.
“Dylan is a true multi-hyphenate. His writing, directing, and onscreen pairing with Tanner have come together as a hilarious addition to the stoner comedy pantheon that will appeal to audiences worldwide,” said Tony Piantedosi, Director of Acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures.
Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times proclaimed, “This micro-budget effort from 23-year-old newbie writer-director Dylan Moran (who also stars) whips up plenty of humor and charm as well as several organic, well-served life lessons.”
The San Diego Reader states, “The film's great virtue is its verisimilitude, followed by its gently crude humor, its affectionate heart, and its pleasantly surprising degree of polish.”
The film features music from indie rock band, Mystic Braves, and from the lead guitarist of Primus, Larry LaLonde.
