The Bubba Story...
When I first conceived of the Bubba concept for a comic book in 1995, saw him first published in 1996 in CFD comics “Bound in Darkness”, and then the more comedic version in my company “Brass Ball Comics”. now Bubba is a major hit on Streaming services like X-Box, Dish Network, FIOS, Amazon Prime and just finished year long run as most popular on HULU. More to come as we prepare for the next Bubba film, BUBBA THE REDNECK WEFREWOLF 2; BIGGER AND HAIRIER!" being handled in Los Angeles and getting ready for pre production.
The first Bubba was drawn by my good friend Michael Broom. Storyboard artist and creature designer for shows such as : "Walking Dead", "The Orville" and many others. Still friends and working together on soon to come TV and Film projects after 21 years. Check out Michael’s IMDB and you’ll see why.
I want to thank so many of you out there for supporting and showing love for my lycanthropic child over the last 21 years. I created him originally as a dangerous outsider who was taking his vengeance on those who had wronged him in the first incarnation.
A few years later...I re tooled Bubba to be more of the humor that being a denizen of the Southern US and especially Florida --A place where life is unlike anywhere else and truly in so many positive ways, no matter what you hear or read. So, keeping with that, I went to the humor of all those I knew and grew up with. So, in Brass Ball comics and other places liked CRACKED magazine, I re-created him as a more humorous guy.
The movie is the same. Funnier than hell and dumber than a bag of hammers. The film was and is truly proof of concept at how well it was received globally. And he may be a "Redneck" but the comics and film are really about acceptance and the "never quit" attitude. Bubba was the town loser, like the comics versions, who later became the hometown hero.
Since I had worked in film and television previously as a writer, floor director, stage hand and makeup tech, I needed to know the producer end of things. So, I learned all I could and then went for it!
I opted for doing a really screwball comedy . Even I decided to jump in and have some fun on screen as his film foil, Satan. I enjoyed writing the material for my Satan character and ad libbed most of it. But it was so much fun! I was now a part of my "Bubbaverse" and could finally hang out with my creations for real! I went ahead and formed my own production company, Two Rubbing Nickels LLC. I called it this because I swore if I ever had two nickels to rub together, I’d make this crazy movie. and I did! My close friend, Michael Davy came on board to design and train my make-up FX team. Mike, interestingly to note, is the great-great-great grand nephew of Sir Humphrey Davy. Mike Davy is also the protégé’ of one of film’s most famous makeup artist’s, the legendary, Dick Smith. I had always striven to find new talent and like my idols, Mel Brooks and George Lucas. I wanted to discover not “recover” talent.
We got a mix of actors who were just “naturals” and mixed these with well experienced local stage actors. The stage folks were great as they coached and taught the others to get their characters down to a note. Yes, it took a village to raise this wolf and now he is howling loud and proud.
Since I own the trademark and copyright plus merchandising rights exclusively, I invite any of these inquiries to please only be sent to me here at the email address provided on this site. Thanks!
And just a word of advice for all you creative types out there. Time is the most valuable thing you have. Don’t waste any of it! I hope to see a few of you at the movies or comic shows. Be well and howl always!
Take care and be well!
