Animal Planet Builds Treehouse in Poconos!
Temple of Adventure: Aired January 10, 2014 - Pete builds an incredible, adventure-themed treehouse for a young, exploration-loving family in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains. The family calls Pete and his crew to create a massive, two-story jungle masterpiece packed with secret doors and hidden passageways within a cluster of cherry trees! Pete delivers not just one but two bouncy suspension bridges, a daring rock-climbing wall anda living wall containing more than 700 live plants for this colossal treehouse, which overlooks a deep gorge. With a secret sarcophagus entrance, a second-sleeping loft and loads of adventurous novelties, this treehouse is sure to bring the family hours of fun, especially when Pete reveals his tailored, sentimental surprise: a tribute to the family’s beloved grandmother.
The film Hostage, shot in the Poconos last summer by Pennsylvania Producer Michael Yurinko, is now being distributed nationwide. The film used locations in Hawley, Honesdale, Lake Ariel, and other local places. Hostage used local crew and services for most of the production. "Paranormal movie fans are in for a treat, Hostage available everywhere Sept 10th and in Walmart now." said Producer Michael Yurinko.
The Pocono Film Commission assisted with the hiring of local crew and identifying locations for the film. Hostage was one of several films that the Pocono Film Commission attracted to the region and contributed to over $6 million dollars worth of regional film production.
There are several internships available year round in Theater Arts and Video Production. The Film Commission also has several unpaid internship positions open and will work with colleges to fulfill requirements for course or internship credits. Email the Pocono Film Commission for more information.
