Progression is a feature-length narrative film project, set in Lawrenceville, shot in Lawrenceville and about a real-life Lawrenceville institution. This feature-length ensemble comedy follows a group of urban pioneers navigating love and heartbreak on the night of the annual “progressive dinner” in and around the hipster-est neighborhood in Pittsburgh.
This film features three soups, two salads and culminates in a raucous single entrée where secrets are revealed, true love is conceived or destroyed, and a baby is delivered on the dining room table. The tone of the film is urbane and witty, with some slapstick thrown in for good measure. The filmmakers pay stylistic homage to the great screwball comedies of 1930s American cinema, as well as the mannered farces perfected by French New Wave auteurs.
Sounds like Gab Cody and Sam Turich are hungry filmmakers, eager to dish out an entertaining flick about Lawrenceville and its residents. Based on actual events that never happened. Help make this virtual story a reality. Contribute here.
