A new movie about unexpected honeymoons, backpacking, friendship, Lewis and Clark, and also wolves.
When David (David Giuntoli) is left by his fiancé just days before the wedding,
Flula (Flula Borg), his relentlessly upbeat best man, insists that the pair go on
David’s previously planned honeymoon together: a seven-day backpacking trip
through the breathtaking mountains of Oregon. On the trail, the two friends cross
paths with a conspiracy theorist (Brian T. Finney), a friendly backpacker (Claire
Coffee), and a bloodthirsty predator (an actual wolf), while the unrelenting trek
tests their friendship and their lives.
Their adventures are bookended with passages from William Clark’s diary
describing his friendship with Meriwether Lewis and the terrain they crossed
during their expedition, giving David and Flula’s relationship a sense of place in
the long history of men bonding as they battle the elements.
BUDDYMOON is the first feature from director Alex Simmons, after years of
success in the documentary genre. He wrote the film with his friends and former
roommates David Giuntoli, star of the hit show Grimm, and YouTube sensation
BUDDYMOON is produced by Jennifer Wood and executive produced by
Flula Borg, David Giuntoli, and Alex Simmons. Cinematography is by Peter Alton
and Michael Lockridge. Editing by Alex Simmons.
