To thank you for your support we have come up with some very cool rewards. So check out the rewards on the right and help us complete Mellencamp!

About the Film:
"They say write what you know, so we didn't write much. The actors and I created the characters and the general outline of the plot, but each scene was completely improvised by the actors. Amazing really. We did know that a 35 year old still living at home with his mom would be funny. We also think two buddies searching for Bigfoot instead of looking for a job is funny. Add some VHS video and you have comedy gold. Do they actually find Bigfoot? Do they ever have to man up in life? You'll have to wait for the movie to find out!" - Travis Shields, director of Mellencamp
Peter is a Portland Oregon based actor and musician who has goofed around in videos for years and is making his short film debut. Portlandia should be calling soon!
Eric is a Coeur d'Alene Idaho based actor and musician who is also making his short film debut. Eric plays "Eric" in the film brilliantly and also contributes a few songs for the film score.
Evelyn is a seasoned Portland Oregon based actress most recognized for her role in the Battlestar Galactica episode of Portlandia. "Ron get these white people out of my closet!"
Travis has directed a few award-winning short documentaries and has loved venturing into the short film world. He collaborated with the actors on the story lines for Mellencamp and then set out for the woods where each scene was improvised until it made him giggle and he yelled cut.
