About this project

What is SQUATCH?

"SQUATCH” is a full length FEATURE FILM that tells the story of 4 College friends & classmates that are taking a weekend camping/hiking trip in the Pacific Northwest.  They inadvertently cross paths with a giant killer Sasquatch that is stalking them.  One by one the beast is picking them off...or is he?  It now becomes a fight for survival to make it out alive.  The story jumps back & forth with our Park Rangers that are investigating the disappearance of the young college kids.  What our hero Park Ranger doesn't know is that there is some sort of cover-up that goes very deep.  A taboo legend of ancient Indian lore!

The Purpose of this Project:

“SQUATCH” is being produced by this crowd funding campaign & Doug Hudson of XING FRAME FILMS because of his love & vision of bringing a tense & scary version of Bigfoot to audiences.  A return to the tales of “Sasquatch” & “the Legend of Boggey Creek”.  This is a modern take on an ancient legend.  Based on actual events!

About the Creative Director/Producer:

Doug Hudson has been designing & creating creature, animatronics & special makeup effects for major Hollywood films for the past 20 years.  Working on titles such as Outbreak, Jurassic Park/Lost World, and Ace Ventura/When Nature Calls.  A vested member of SAG for over 20 years.   He founded  Xing Frame Films in 2009 which produces films in the Pacific Northwest.  Bringing big budget production value to independant films!

Risks and challenges

Scheduling and coordinating a large cast and crew within a small window of production time can certainly prove to be a challenge. Unexpected setbacks and issues are inevitabe, but luckily we are well equipped to deal with them.

We will be shooting the film this summer, leaving plenty of time for reshoots/rescheduling if need be. All of our acting talent will be locally based so we don't have lodging expenses. Also we have secured a single location that will be used for about 90% of the filming. Keeping everything & everyone close so we can get more shots with less setup time.

Granted, even with all these things in place, other setbacks could appear.

As much as we want everything to work out as smoothly as possible, if we try and make a film with NO risks at all, we'll end up with a boring film. We aim to push the edge, experiment, and try new things to create the best content possible.
