A newly sober detective must prove his AA sponsor has a power to make people disappear using his butt.
The acclaimed mystery-comedy from the creative team behind Tiny Cinema stars Tyler Cornack, Tyler Rice, Shelby Dash, Austin Lewis and Kristina Clifford.
Chip Gutchel, a bored IT Engineer, has an awakening after a routine prostate exam. What starts as a harmless rectal kink, soon grows into a dangerous addiction as he becomes responsible for a missing child. Chip eventually buries his desires in Alcoholics Anonymous and tries to move on with his life. Years later, he becomes the sponsor of Russell Fox, a newly sober detective. After Chip relapses, Russell is brought in to investigate another missing child at Chip’s office. Russell begins to suspect that Chip’s addiction may not be to alcohol, but something much more sinister. It’s up to Russell now to prove that Chip uses his butt to make people disappear. But who’s going to believe his wild theory?
“Butt Boy started off as a joke and remained that way until it was finished. But while writing it we were able to explore many different themes that I never thought would find their way into such a silly premise. The script and tone came very easily because we made a short film early on that already had what we were going for. The film just did it on a larger scale both story and production wise. Because I also acted in the film, preparation was a key aspect to production. I was able to gain access to all locations early on and take still photos that I could print out for the storyboard. That way I could work easily with our DP to show him what I wanted. We rehearsed the bigger scenes religiously because of the limited budget and time on each set. So we would come prepared, set up quickly, and shoot. I am very excited for people to experience Butt Boy. We had an amazing time making it come to life, and I feel at its core it is truly original. In a movie like "Airplane", the characters find themselves in a very serious situation, but it's filled with jokes. Butt Boy is the opposite...The premise is the joke itself and it plays it straight all the way until the end.”
