The Nowhere California team could tell you dozens of stories from our teenage lives, but that is for a different time and when the statute of limitations expires, so we are ready to let you in on the teenage exploits of Kansas Bowling.
At the age of 15, Kansas began to develop the story of “B.C. Butcher” with her friend Kenzie and, by the age of 17, Kansas directed the feature film adaptation of “B.C. Butcher.” The production for this movie quickly picked up steam and brought some cult icons in front of Kansas’ camera, such as Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) and Kato Kaelin (The O.J. Simpson Trail).
As the film wrapped and word of mouth began to grow, the creation of Kansas caught the legendary eye of Lloyd Kaufman and he picked up “B.C. Butcher” for distribution through the Troma Entertainment banner.
At the recent Los Angeles Day of the Dead Convention, that took place in April, the guys from Nowhere had the pleasure to talk with Kansas Bowling and her stepmother, Miranda Robin. The conversation delves into the production of the film and the journey through the world of independent filmmaking.

On a personal note, the entire Nowhere California team would like to thank Miranda and Kansas for taking the time out to talk with us. It was an honor to learn about your creative world.
