Smith came highly referred by Matt Moody as they have worked together in the past.  Matt felt he would be perfect for the role with a demeanor of a high strung, agitated side kick.  Ray Van Blarcom & Fran Hughes (Producers) bring a fortitude of knowledge and contacts as well as concept visualization with unique abilities to make things happen, to procure locations and acquire the tools necessary on a wide scale to make The Nitwit come into fruition.  The songs & music from Leaving Eden, Boston MASS., USA will be featured throughout the movie.
