Buster Business follows a young man just trying his best to make it. After landing a prestigious job interview in a comically corporate world, Buster soon realizes the odds are stacked against him.

Warm hearted, clever, silly, and eye-popping. We want Buster Business to feel like a classic Sunday paper cartoon. Taking inspiration from Charlie Chaplin to Pixar, Buster Business is a timeless comedy for people of all ages. (approx. 10-15min in length.)

 Corey Wavle as Buster Nystrom

Corey Wavle was made for Buster Nystrom. His penchant for physical comedy, and his 80's dad mustache, fit the role of an underdog businessman oh so well. Check out his screen test below.

Joe Wilson as Mr. Wallop

Mr. Wallop is the head honcho, the big man Buster's trying to impress with great difficulty. We wanted Wallop to have the aura of the President, or better yet, a king. Joe Wilson brings all of that and more.

(We are still casting for all of the remaining roles. Check our updates for casting news)

The director's latest work: Different Times. Man.

(Audience Choice Award, Reedy Reels Film Festival 2016)

 

 This is what we're going to need to get the movie made. This does not include any post-production costs, which we are planning on fully covering ourselves. If you guys go over the goal, any additional funds will be used to cover these costs.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for this film is scope, not only in creating a world that breathes offscreen, but in the size of the production itself. We have experience on sets of this size, and much larger, but this is the first with Gunner and Corey at the helm. Different Times, Man had a total of 5 people on set. Buster Business will have 25-30.

This is a challenge we are ready to meet. We've been preparing for months and will be for a few more before shooting begins. We have a wonderful team behind us, and with your help, we can make one heck of a movie.
