PRODUCTION HISTORY

Born in the pages of Bound in Darkness magazine, Bubba The Redneck Werewolf has enjoyed a cult following on the fringe of independent comics since 1996. Described by Comic Buyers Guide as “a hilarious southern-fried dose of slams, jabs, and Bill Gaines style gags,” Bubba has always been an irreverent send-up of all things monster and all things redneck. Now, for the first time, Bubba comic-creator Mitch Hyman (Hitmen In Paradise) and Director Brendan Rogers present a live-action Bubba The Redneck Werewolf in this new feature film that carries on the zany smile-inducing tradition of the Bubba comics, while introducing wholly original plot lines and a variety of razy new characters.

PRODUCTION DETAILS

Independently produced by Two Rubbing Nickels and And You Films, Bubba the Redneck Werewolf was shot on location in Central Florida, and shows off the picturesque “Deep South” side of the Sunshine State. Director Brendan Rogers and cinematographer/producer Will Phillips shot the film with the rapid-fire comedic pace and character focus of their previous efforts (Flashback, The Hobbit Games). The screenplay by Stephen Biro combines modern superhero storytelling with rowdy redneck flavor, allowing lazy country boy Bubba to wreak havoc even as he saves the day. Bubba himself is brought to life by the groundbreaking makeup design of Michael Davy, utilizing his own Watermelon-brand appliances to create a fun-loving werewolf with an unprecedented range of comedic facial expressions – taken full advantage of by actor Fred Lass and his affable everyman performance.Bubba The Redneck Werewolf boasts a deft merging of practical special effects and CG visual flourishes, that add appropriate carnage to the comedy. Bubba’s soundtrack is provided by rockabilly band The Blast-Offs, while its original score is composed by Los Angeles-based composer George Shaw (Table Top, Hang Loose).
