Trees on Trees on Trees
Director: Scott Schuler
SYNOPSIS: Former college roommates and best friends (JOSH and ALEX) plan a reunion trip hiking the Appalachian trail; problem is neither of them know anything about hiking. While Josh is determined to reach the summit of Bear Mountain, Alex is determined to be stoned the entire weekend. The challenges of the woods paired with their lack preparation cause problems right away, and hilarity ensues as they try to overcome sickness, fear of bears, and ticks on dicks. Eventually, an experienced through-hiker (DANI) joins their expedition and shows them how it’s done, but this further tests Josh and Alex’s relationship. Will they make it to Bear Mountain? Will they be stoned the entire weekend? Does Josh have Lyme disease? Find out, in ‘Trees on Trees on Trees’.
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR: Scott Schuler was born in Washington, DC and grew up in Potomac, Maryland.

In his four years, Scott directed five short films as well as edited twelve shorts and two features. He even went on to sweep Tisch’s 48-hour film festival in his senior year winning five awards including best picture and best director.

Additionally, he’s developing more content (a short, a webseries, and two features) as well promoting ‘Trees on Trees on Trees’.
