Antarctic…huh? is a comedic parody of sorts that chronicles the life of “Preston”, a disenfranchised southern Californian, who accepts a job running the landfill in Antarctica to finish his “great American novel” free from distraction. He soon realizes that life on the icy continent is anything but peaceful and desolate. Directed by Matt Hoyt with art direction & production design by Jason Sherry. The project is produced entirely in Matt’s backyard & living room in San Diego, CA. For inquires & press email:
