Hey everybody, if you haven't checked it out, it's not too late to lend your support to this awesome Bigfoot movie project in the works!
Here we go! We're making a BIGFOOT film unlike any other! So, "How BIG can we make it?" We need your help! READ MORE BELOW!
I could go the route of making a typical financing deal in order to get the money to make "Bigfoot." It would involve making a lot of sacrifices that I believe would ultimately hurt the film. Or, I could go through Kickstarter. I've seen it work for others before. But, could it work for me?
After I saw how “Veronica Mars” and "Wish I Was Here" fans rallied around Kristen Bell and Zach Braff's films respectively, I couldn’t help but think maybe I could get my film financed through Kickstarter!
Financing an independent film through a studio traditionally means having to give away your right to “the final cut.” This includes casting and location choices, as well as cutting down your script to be able to shoot it on the cheapest budget possible. What if there was another way?
Ok. Here's the scoop! If no one can prove that Bigfoot exists, then how can they say for sure what he's really like? If Bigfoot really does exist, how in the world has he managed to keep himself hidden for so long? Therefore, he must be intelligent and resourceful. He must...wait for it...understand and speak language. What?! (Mind blown!) That's where we started. Here is where we ended up:
For millenniums, BIGFOOT, as The Keeper, has silently protected the environment and man from himself, yet the evil of industry brings him out of the darkness to battle for the complete control of nature.
JACK DONOVAN has partnered with SENATOR GAINES to illegally ravage Theodore Roosevelt National Park, but when fracking machinery is mysteriously destroyed, he calls in ADAM REYNOLDS to fix the equipment. Upon arriving in Medora, Adam comes face-to-face with Bigfoot, a beast that can rip apart ten-ton machines, cloak his body to match his surroundings, and move at speeds near one hundred miles an hour. Adam has been chosen as the next Torchbearer.
An imaginative look into history, Adam pieces together that a young TEDDY ROOSEVELT was the last Torchbearer, had befriended Bigfoot, and later became the founder of the National Parks to protect Bigfoot and all of wildlife. Upon Roosevelt’s death, he imparts the Torch to his friend and protégé, GEORGE REYNOLDS, Adam’s great-grandfather. Yet the Torch, which holds great power, has been lost for over a hundred years.
BECCA, a geologist, also seeks the Torch, and Adam and Becca’s paths cross, leading them to quickly realize they need one another--for many different reasons. An epic battle for the Torch ensues, for whoever bears the Torch controls all of creation. Can Adam and Bigfoot recover the Torch and restore the balance between Man and Beast?
