Adventures in #Adulting
Filmed in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA

Adventures in #Adulting follows the life of Corey Caruso, a charming, yet unmotivated 30-something living in Portland, OR who is unwittingly stuck in the past – the 90s to be exact. He is accompanied by Claire, Josh, Paul, Annie and Gina – each battling their own "adulting" mishaps and hilarious encounters – at times with eccentric characters. The mutual quest is that of love, adventure and true happiness – but at what cost?

Each episode pulls characters and quotes from 90s pop culture. If you can remember the 90s, you'll be sure to enjoy this trip down memory lane.

Director Statement

Directed by Tristan David Luciotti & Kyle Martin

Adventures in #Adulting is derived from my love of the 90's. I'm a big fan of comedy and am thrilled to see the little world I created brought to life. This project took a lot of time, effort, and dedication. We had a brilliant cast and crew and worked through the night several shoots and watched the sun rise. I'm very proud of what we accomplished and appreciate your consideration. - Tristan
