OCEAN CITY – The Town of Ocean City will receive a $30,000 return from its $100,000 investment in the “Ping Pong Summer” movie.
Tourism and Marketing Director Donna Abbott presented an update on the film “Ping Pong Summer” during Monday’s Tourism Commission meeting.
In June of 2012, Ocean City was first introduced to the story of “Ping Pong Summer” when Writer/Director Michael Tully and producers pitched the movie concept and sought the public’s help in financing it.
“Ping Pong Summer” is set in the summer of 1985 and centers on a ping pong and hip-hop obsessed teenage boy on a family vacation to Ocean City. Tully wrote the story and directed the film based on his own experiences on summer family vacations in the resort while growing up in Mt. Airy, Md.
