Marineo Pictures announces the release of Chasing Yesterday, the feature directorial debut from Deutsch Inc. Producer Joe Pernice, opening on June 3rd at New York’s Cinema Village, and available on iTunes and Amazon beginning June 10th.
Written, directed, and produced by Pernice, Chasing Yesterday is a coming-of-age story about a washed-up twenty-something year old, the one- time hometown hero and track star, who is convinced by a local sweetheart to run a marathon and get his life back on track. The film stars Emmy® Award winner Eric Nelsen (Coming Through The Rye), Courtney Baxter (Night Has Settled) and Steve Schirripa (The Sopranos, Blue Bloods).
Filmed in seventeen days, with a budget under one hundred thousand dollars, Chasing Yesterday screened at the Newport Beach Film Festival in 2015, was given the "Rising Star Award" at the Canada International Film Festival, was named "Best Home Grown Feature" at the Garden State Film Festival, received the "Director's Award" from the North Carolina Film Awards competition and the "Award of Merit" from the Accolade Global Film Awards.
“We are thrilled for the release of Chasing Yesterday. To have the opportunity to make a film on such a low budget and be able to have it available to a mass audience, is an amazing testament to indie filmmaking,” says Pernice. Pernice currently directs and produces for Deutsch Inc. out of the New York office. Prior to that, he worked in the development office of Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Productions.
Chasing Yesterday co-stars Josh Flitter (License to Wed), Adam LeFevre (Gold), David A. Gregory (NBC’s Deception), and Emmy® Award winner Blanche Baker (Sixteen Candles). Alongside Pernice, Courtney Baxter, Eric Nelsen and Sainty Nelsen produced.
