Lawrenceburg residents Nycole and Travis Huber recently finished reprising their roles in season two of regionally produced “Brothers Barbarian,” a comedy Web series about two teenage barbarians who have been turned into overweight, balding, middle-aged men by an evil witch.
In just one year, “Brothers Barbarian” has gained a loyal fan base and more than 100,000 views on YouTube and other online channels. Season one premiered to a packed house in September on the full screen at RAVE/Stoneybrook Theatres in Louisville, and interest from out-of-state developers has continued to grow, according to a news release.
The series utilizes and features talent from Kentucky’s growing film industry, and is shot on location in Brandenburg with more than 50 actors, extras and crew from the region.
The Hubers, who have a 5-year-old son, Tristan, made the experience of shooting season two a family affair.
“Tristan loved watching the fight scene between his dad’s character, the Cleric, against the villainous Orcs,” Nycole said. She said they felt comfortable letting Tristan watch behind the scenes because the series is so family friendly.
“He had so much fun meeting the different characters in full makeup and costume.”
Nycole plays Nicky, who becomes known in seasons one and two as a beautiful schemer and the love interest of lead character Art (one of the brothers).
Travis reprised his role as the formidable Cleric, and is part of an adventurous band of fantasy archetypes.
The series, which follows the barbarian brothers on a quest to regain their lost youth, stars indie film makers Ken Whitman, of Elizabethtown as Russ, and Tim Gooch, of Goshen as Art. It also features internationally renowned fantasy artist and former Dungeons and
Dragons illustrator Larry Elmore, as the Old Wizard.
Season two of “Brothers Barbarian: The Saga of Art & Russ” will be released online this winter.
