CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Victoria Murdoch
ERNIE – Matthew Lawrence
BUCKSHOT – Julian Ford
SHERIFF MAGNUM – Vince Jerad

Get to know writer JC Mercer Jr.:

1. What is the story about?

BANG! REDNECK CHRISTMAS explodes like a shotgun blast straight from the North Pole! This magically insane tale, introduces a likeable underdog with a zany quest to find his self-worth, kidnaped girlfriend and a multi-million dollar ornament before its to late.

2. Why should this movie be made?

This screenplay was written with a modest budget in mind and high market value targeting a wide range audience.

3. Describe this story in one sentence.

Likeable underdog finds self-worth, while risking his life for another.

4. What movie have you seen the most?

Rocky 4, talk about an underdog story.

5. How long have you worked on this screenplay?

This adaption of my own original story; Bigfoot in the Trailerhood took me about 3 months.

6. How many stories have you written?

I have completed 2 comedy features, 1 TV script and 5 short stories in my 4 1/2 years of writing. I’m currently working on an outline for my 3rd comedy feature.

7. What motivated you to write this?

I thought it would be cool to merge Duck Dynasty, Harry and the Hendersons, Ghost Hunters and Joe Dirt into the next absurd holiday favorite.

8. What obstacles did you face?

While juggling a full-time job, being a husband, step-dad and a home owner…yep, there were some obstacles.

9. What are other things you are passionate about?

I’m passionate about my personable friendship with God. I love that he has given and shared his humor with me. I also am passionate about my wife Katrina, with out her, I would be just another ugly duck in the pond — trying to keep float!

10. Why Wildsound?

After reading great reviews I thought it would be a great fit for me.
