St. Cloud, MN, July 15, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- St. Cloud State University student Jason Schueppert gathered up a handful of buddies, a few aborted short stories, and cat in a box in May of '07 and shot the debut episode of “Sparkle Picnic” in one day with the help of fellow film-maker Chayden Bates. A little over a year later, they've hit the jackpot on popular video website YouTube with "Sparkle Picnic: Sensual Assault". The eleventh episode ranked as the number one featured comedy video in the USA, as well as in over twenty other countries including Germany, Australia and Russia.
The “Sparkle Picnic” crew sought to meld together a whimsical blend of outrageous humor, hard-hitting social commentary and peculiar observations into an easy-to-swallow "Saturday Night Live" for the internet generation. With the second season of "Sparkle Picnic" kicking off this Winter, head-writer Jason Schueppert and his gang of actors, writers, cinematographers and editors hope to bring some attention to their various talents with their silly videos. For fans of the sketch comedy teams “Whitest Kids You Know” and “Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job,” there’s something new to make you waste your time at work.
Filming on additional episodes is to take place this August and September in St. Cloud.
“Sparkle Picnic” is inappropriate sketch comedy that seeks to make people laugh, or make them angry. The participants aren’t after the middle ground. They seek to entertain and to make you look at the world a little differently. Series one can be found at http://www.sparklepicnic.com.
