“I think we’re going to find him, and I think we’re going to be the first ones in America to do it.” - Bigfoot Hunter, Tim Holmes
In 2006, a piece of footage leaked online. This 45 minute chunk of film was, unknown to many who stumbled upon it, just a very rough cut of the first half of a film never intended for public consumption.
The video was watched, reposted, and shared among friends. The views climbed, and some internet outlets even gave the film awards. Half a million views later, the clip is still going strong, even in a form rendering the film only 25% complete and very rough around the edges.
Five years since a small portion of the footage appeared online, we’re more than excited to announce that the feature length documentary film, The Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching, is nearing completion.
The film, shot in the summer of 2006 during two Sasquatch hunting expeditions in the rural hills of down-state New York, follows the often hilarious, sometimes nerve racking, and always fascinating search of two prominent Bigfoot hunters from the New England region.
Tim Holmes, ex-merchant marine and founder of the Southern Tier Bigfoot Watch, together with Becky Sawyer, a no-nonsense employee of Searching for Bigfoot Incorporated, take to the forests of the tri-state area in a search for the elusive monster, followed by the cameras of a group of young adventurers, many of whom are now the amateur journalists of Who Forted? Magazine.
During the expeditions, the evidence captured on film surprised not only the crew, but two seasoned Sasquatch investigators. Though the film undoubtedly focuses on the North American Man-Ape, the big hairy guy takes a back seat to the bigger personalities of Tim and Becky, who are obsessed with the search for Bigfoot, albeit in very different ways. It’s a film that begs the question, “what matters more, the journey or the destination?”
The Bigfoot Hunter: Still Searching, the first feature length documentary from the people behind Who Forted? Magazine, was directed by Greg Newkirk and is being produced by Toronto’s Fight or Flight Productions in association with Ghost Hunters, Incorporated.
We can barely begin to explain how excited we are to debut the film. Keep your eyes peeled to future editions of the WF?
