SHOW #2: BAD TRACKING
Bad Tracking features a 60-minute grab bag of misguided corporate hip ness, overly enthusiastic patriotism, and a weekend of beer-induced debauchery caught on video. Also included are angry and unfunny religious nuts, a US national video game team and, of course, non-erotic full frontal male nudity.

Joe Pickett & Geoffrey Haas― Artist
Founded in 2004, the Festival originated in Wisconsin and Minnesota by Joe Pickett, Nick Prueher and Geoff Haas, childhood friends from Wisconsin. While still in high school, Pickett and Prueher began collecting videos from garage sales, training videos from odd jobs, and copies of tapes from a video production house. The friends would then play selections from this collection for entertainment at parties, a practice which continued through their college years at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. In 2004, Pickett and Prueher quit their day jobs to focus on production of their first feature documentary, Dirty Country. They started the touring Found Footage Festival show to fund the production of the documentary. In addition to its regular touring schedule, the Festival has appeared at the HBO US Comedy Arts Festival, Just For Laughs, the New York Comedy Festival, the IMPAKT Festival in the Netherlands, and the Central Standard Film Festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
