You can read an official synopsis for turbo cola below.
Austin Morris forgoes the biggest party of the year to work overtime at the Quality Mart, much to the chagrin of his friends and his new girlfriend, Mary Jane. What his friends don’t know is that his real plan is to rob the store’s ATM with his stoner sidekick, Swearsky, so he can be with the girl of his dreams. This New Year’s Eve… 1999… will change everything.
Turbo Cola is set in the 1990s
To make the shoot successful turbo cola, the filmmakers filmed at a gas station in New Cumberland for two weeks after convincing the owners to close up shop a bit earlier at night during that time. The cast and crew then spent that time shooting at night from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. ATMs and the purchase of counterfeit legal notes dating back to the 1990s.”
“We did a photo shoot before going on set the very first night. [The actor] Anthony Notarile, he plays the character of Eric. He showed up to the photo shoot in an outfit that I actually owned in 1999, waist deep. producer Brandon Keeton told PennLive, noting how nostalgic filming the period piece was.
The story is inspired by New Year’s Eve at Stop N Go, a play written by Samantha Oty. On why he agreed to helm the project at Keeton’s request, director Luke Covert added: “I really, really enjoyed acting. And I thought it was a pretty compact story that we could make it – we didn’t. no helicopters flying over the Nile or anything like that.
