BRITS & BIGFOOT:
So the project started off with me wondering how many Brits had seen Bigfoot, Sasquatch or even the Yeti. But as I researched I realised that Britain had its very own creatures of the woods. More and more sightings in the forests of the UK are reported every year. Video's from all the around this green Isle are popping up on YouTube and social networks. Photo's and casts of great beasts hiding in the woods. So we had our own legend, our very own Bigfoot! He or She hadn't just popped up here, he/she had been reported for 100's of years!
We just didn't bang on about it as much as America!
I really wanted to know more but for a few writers like Nick Redfearn (wildmen) there wasn't too much information. And I didn't find one film on our Bigfoot! So I wanted to change that. Make a 1 hour documentary that highlights the beast in our midst. Hear detailed witness reports, examine the evidence and question British experts to see if this is really possible. And finally choose locations with the most sightings and create a team to track it down and film the great British Bigfoot!
Are you in ??? I hope so..It's going to be amazing!!
And I promise not to say this is Squatch country once!
ps. I have worked within the TV industry for 20 years... trust me I am an Editor!
Risks and challenges
Risks and Challenges:
The project from funding to completion will take about a year to make.
I have already began researching and have contacted 2 important players in the film and they have agreed to take part. One is a Primatologist and very well respected (British). The other is an excellent British Author who is a expert on the British Wildman.
I have allowed plenty of time in the schedule to film all aspects of the Documentary.
Most of the tracking filming will be done next summer along with any re-enactments that need to be done.
I am a professional Cameraman/Editor and already own Full HD kit, so no hire costs would entailed in that. but I will need extra staff for certain parts of the film.
I am hoping to have fully shot the film by September next year and will begin post production straight away. The main film will run approx an hour and hopefully should be fully cut by january 2015. I will then make extra's for the DVD with behind the scene's and full uncut interviews etc.
April 2015 the complete film and all extra's should be finished. We will then work on the DVD production and design. And all merchandise for delivery to all our amazing backers in July 2015.
There may be a few hitches on the way but I am sure that we can keep to this schedule. I will of course set up all the social media sites and a web page and blog to keep you informed whats going on. There will be stills and short video's so you don't forget. The premier will be in August in Oxford and then we will take the film on the road to Film festivals and to Paranormal Conventions doing Q&A's.
