The Hike Cleans Up in Mumbai India!

"The Hike" was nominated for 3 awards at the 12th Accord Cine Fest in India, and won in ALL THREE categories. Similarly to the ADIFF in St. Petersburg, Russia, the movie won awards for both comedy AND horror. A rare achievement for any movie, and something I am wildly proud of. On July 3rd, we won for Best Comedy, Best Thriller, and Best Writing. BELIEVE IN THE FUNK!!! #wvlt #thehike2020 #thehike2021 #thehikemovie #campsmokey #spearfinger #cherokee #smokymountainchronicles #wjhcam #accordcinefest #mumbaiindia #bestcomedy #bestwriting #abbymarie #abbykousouris

My name is not Vincent, but this story is an otherwise terrific article about "The Hike" getting on Amazon Prime and the fight getting it to a world wide platform. It also mentions WJHC AM and Camp Smokey.

The Hike is FREE on Amazon Prime!

 The Hike is FREE on Amazon Prime!

It’s been a 10 month knife fight that included hiking up mountains, sustaining injuries, editing for months, fighting giants, hopping through industry hoops, promoting and navigating the legal side of making an independent movie with a handful of friends. But after Kandi Thompson’s best actress win on Friday at the Smoky Mountain Film Fest and The Hike being available on Amazon Prime… I think it is safe to say that this “Clerks in the Blair Witch Project” comedy horror has achieved more than it should. If you want to give us a Fathers Day gift, watch it (it’s free) and give us a positive review. Then, share the movie on your own social media. Tell the kids it’s R rated… one jabrone says the “F” a lot… and... ya know... boobs. Thanks for the dozens who have helped. Expect more madness from the mothership soon.

WJHC AM Poster Released!!!

 WJHC AM Poster!!!

Will Trotter's new poster is here! By taking a look at it, we can deduce a few things about the movie... First of all, there are some good looking women in this thing, and a few dorky dudes to boot. Next... red and black... OOOOHH SCARY! The big red cross on the antenna suggests this is a religious radio station, and the lady on the right appears the be praising the Lord... or trying to hail a taxi. There are birds flying at night, a red moon, and it says its a Fable about Y2K... when many people thought that would be the end of the world, so that can't be good. Red eyeballs in the forest too... and a lady smoking while pregnant... hmmm. Also... good looking women. Oh... I said that already. 

Looks pretty good so far. The gang is reporting that shooting is actually on schedule, and the thing should be released within a few months. Let's hope the kids can get the damn thing on a streaming service faster than they did "The Hike".

News About the Smoky Mountain Chronicles and mo'

 News About the Smoky Mountain Chronicles and Mo'

If you have taken a break from Big N Funky Productions for the last year, you may be surprised to find out that we are taking a break from making our paranormal TV shows on ASY TV, and we are focusing on making horror/comedy movies. We have finished "The Hike", which has garnered positive reviews and success at film festivals, including a few honorable mentions and wins for First Time Directors (Walker, Vineyard) and Best Comedy Scene "Bestiality the Wrestler".

We are smack dab in the middle of shooting movie number 2, which is entitled "WJHC AM". The first teaser trailer dropped last night, and the mini synopsis about the movie from IMDB is: 

"A smart ass DJ wants to start a career in radio, but the only place that will hire him is an old Southern Gospel Radio station. His first night shift happens during Y2K AND the rapture. All hell breaks loose."

Here is the link to the trailer:

We are also pretty stoked to release our first comedy sketch in 2021. It features most of the old Big N Funky gang, plus a pretty attractive newcomer Katie Gannon. Check out her chops and the rest of the gang here: Let's Make it Weird

Speak of the devil, our Youtube channel has hit 1000 subscribers, meaning we can monetize our content if we get enough eyeballs on that shiiiiiiiz. Make you sure you subscribe and watch our jive. It makes us feel good.

Our podcast is going back online and its gonna be bigger and better than ever... the team is growing. The belief is growing. The people are starting to believe in the Funk! Do you? Check us out on the "Big N Funky Productions Podcast" every Wednesday at 8PM. 

Here's the episode from Wednesday

Big Pimpin' in the 865


"The Hike" has been tearing it up so far with international festivals, and this week Big N Funky P landed two awards: "Best Comedy Scene" at the 2021 Scene Awards and an Honorable Mention at the Onyko Film Awards. The best comedy scene was the infamous "Beastiality the Wrestler" vignette that is already infamous, but will now be on its way to being famous.

"The Hike" has been selected to six festivals so far and has been nominated for several awards already. For a complete uploaded list, check out the Awards page on the official page of "The Hike". 

Also, Kandi Thompson and Vinnie Vineyard graced Tom Morris's podcast "The Good, the Bad, the Nerdy" last week and rapped it up about "The Hike", the new movie "WJHC AM", and the six movie fable collection, "The Smoky Mountain Chronicles". To listen to the show, click here.

It's true! An advanced screening of "The Hike" is available ONLINE. You can watch it tonight on your phone, tablet, or even send it to your big screen TV. All that we are asking for is a donation of $15... and that will include bonus footage in the next few weeks: bloopers and extra scenes!!!

This Go Fund Me event is to help make our next movie! We have several donation levels that include prizes!

Here's the information from the Go Fund Me site
including prizes and donation levels!!!

What's up Funk Nation!!!

We are excited to announce that "The Hike" is VERY close to being distributed
around the world, AND we are mere weeks away from starting to shoot our next
horror/comedy movie: WJHC FM

This movie is the next in our series of "Smoky Mountain Chronicles" movies,. This is another horror/ comedy and will include the true stories of writer/ actor Vinnie Vineyard's misadventures being an overnight DJ at a Southern Gospel Radio
station, and what would happen if his shift coincided with the perfect storms: Y2K and the rapture. DJ Cousin Vinnie has to then protect himself and others during
the apocalypse at a severely compromised and aging radio station.

Here's what critics are saying about BnF P's first movie:

"The Hike features amazing scenery hiding unspeakable evil.
Pure entertainment." - Nerdy Old Man Podcast

"It's a Killer Movie!" - LED Productions

"Vinnie Vineyard's performance was amazing. Grade A. Spot On." - Cinetalks

"It's crass, bizarre, straight up wild, and I loved it!"
- The Good, the Bad, The Gruesome

"The Hike was fantastic! This gem hits the funny bone!" - Nerdy Laser Podcast

As much as we love "The Hike", we think "WJHC AM" will be even funnier and
scarier... and you might learn  something about yourself too!

these pretty are pretty swanky, to boot.
