From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Charles R. "Chuck" Bush III (July 1, 1961- ) was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. He grew up in nearby Houma, Louisiana. In 1982 Bush moved to Austin, Texas where he underwent a life-changing experience. On April 3, 1983 Chuck Bush entered a 7-11 convenience store in Austin; at the same moment, first-time director Kevin Reynolds was exiting that same store. Reynolds was in Austin to begin principal photography of his Fandango and Bush resembled a character Reynolds had been unsuccessful in casting. The two men spoke briefly and Bush was asked to audition the next morning. Reynolds cast Bush as the boorish "Dorman", a John Belushi-type slob that rounded out a cast that included actors Kevin Costner and Judd Nelson. Since then, Bush has made a career behind the camera as a producer, writer and director of several family films and television projects. Bush returned to his native Louisiana in 1990 and in 2001 worked with the Louisiana Legislature to create some of the most aggressive tax incentives for film and television production in the United States. Since then he has worked diligently to develop the entertainment industry in Louisiana, teaching at the college level to build a workforce and developing family films and television programs.

He was behind Burning Bush Studios, which provided production asssitance for productions on home video. Burning Bush Studios did all the sound work on the DVD (digital versatile disc) version of the four-volume set of the book of Matthew, the debut movie in 1996 of Visual International, with Bruce Marchiano in the role of Jesus- as well as the sound on a number of other Visual International products, such as a topical Bible video series and an audio book by Marchiano. The company also did the sound work on a shorter, two-hour version of Matthew, called "Jesus, the Christ," and the sound work for a family feature-length film called "Jeremy's Egg", produced by Southern Eagle Pictures. Locally, the company did audio work for such clients as McDonald's and the Louisiana Lottery.
