Cleveland, Ohio — Cleveland is not the only place in America where an amusement park is getting a Peaboody for “most creative use of a motion picture,” but this one is the only one of its kind.
“Bargain Buster” is the name of the new short film, “Bastard,” which premiered on HBO last week and was produced by American Comedy Awards-winning writer-director Chris McKay.
The film, which features McKay and actor Adam Scott, stars McKay as a man who’s been hired to drive a van for a movie company called “Busty.”
“Busted!” is a parody of the franchise of animated movies starring the titular characters.
The two main characters, a guy named Buster and a girl named Briana, go to the same movie theater and start out in different vehicles.
The first movie starts with the main character’s van crashing into a building.
The second movie starts in the parking lot with the two characters driving around on their own and trying to find some new toys to play with.
“It’s all very simple in terms of how we did it,” McKay said of the premise of “Busting!”
“We just did it in one take.
It’s just a really fun little vehicle ride that we wrote.
It was just a fun way to get the idea of a fun ride and then to do something different.”
“I like to think that when we started thinking about it, that we were looking for something fun, and that the most creative use we could think of for the vehicle was as a vehicle to chase the characters around the theater,” McKay added.
“We wanted to get into a whole other genre of animation, and we wanted to have fun with it.”
The film was shot in Cleveland with a local crew and will premiere in early December on HBO.
“I think it was the most fun, creative way we could have approached it,” said McKay.
“The best part of it is that we’re going to be shooting in Cleveland and we’re having a local production company take care of the rest of the details.
They’re all local.
They know the city, and they’re local, and the production company is local, so that makes the whole thing a lot easier.”
McKay and Scott are excited about the film.
“They’re all so nice and funny and friendly and funny,” Scott said.
“So I’m excited to have a job that’s so fun and so fun.”
McKay said he and Scott met through friends of a friend in Los Angeles who’s a comic writer.
“He just happened to be on ‘The Tonight Show’ and we got to hang out, and he started writing and writing and I got to meet him,” McKay explained.
“When we got back to L.A., we had these ideas about doing a movie together and we started writing a script together.
And he said, ‘I’ve got this idea for a TV show.
We’ll shoot in Cleveland.
You guys can come up with a movie and you can go do a film.’
So I got on the phone and said, you know, ‘Yeah, yeah, that’s great.
What do you think of the idea?’
And he goes, ‘You know what?
Let’s shoot in Ohio, because it’s the most beautiful place in the world.'”
“I’m a little bit embarrassed to say this, but I think that’s where we got the inspiration for this,” McKay continued.
“Our first two movies were filmed in Ohio.
We had a bunch of friends who were going to film the first two films in Columbus.
We just had the idea that we could shoot here and have fun and have some fun and just have a fun time, and then we were like, ‘We can do it.'”
McKay said they got together and shot in Columbus and shot the first film in a parking lot.
“And it was like a little joke,” McKay recalled.
“But then I think we got a couple people from Ohio, and one guy got the idea to go out and film the second film and he did it on a trailer.
He was driving in the trailer, and this guy is doing this crazy thing where he’s like this big robot that’s crawling around the trailer.
And I’m like, that would be fun.
That would be so funny.
So we shot it in a trailer, the second one in a park, and it was just such a fun and spontaneous experience.
It didn’t have a script attached to it, but it was so spontaneous and such a great way to do it.”
McKay added, “It was like this weird movie that was made by two guys who had a vision for a film.
It just sort of happened, and people were like like, oh, I can’t wait to see it.
It made me smile.
I mean, it was funny, and I thought,
