Tribeca 2015: Critics Choice

Kurt Brokaw of The Independent selected Big Boy as one of the top films at Tribeca this year!

"A touch of midnight comedy relief is needed. The title character in Big Boy is perky 9-year-old Dustin, who’s riding in the backseat with mom and dad, and desperately needs a bathroom after all that soda pop. So dad pulls off a Seattle/Tacoma highway into a solitary rest stop with a public bathroom. It looks okay from the outside and dad thinks Dustin’s old enough to take care of business without him tagging along.

The amazing and talented, David Larson was interviewed by UTG about Big Boy and screenwriting!

"Big Boy was my first time collaborating with Bryan Campbell. I met Bryan through a mutual friend, Mike Astle, who is one of the producers with Jason Aumann.

Seattle's Bryan Campbell accepted into Tribeca Film Festival

The Examiner gave "Big Boy" a really great write up before we left for NYC.

Big Boy is a true Seattle “crewtopia” labor of love. It was shot using an amazingly talented cast and crew who all live and work locally. The film was written by David R. Larson, produced by Mike Astle and Jason Aumann, Production Designed by Kristen Bonnalie and shot by Stefan Scherperel (who was also the visual effects supervisor on last year indie hit, “The One I Love”). Kristen amazingly transformed a perfectly clean restroom into the effectively disgusting set you can see in the clip above--and then back to clean again!--in a mere 72 hours..."
