The Acrimony of Bigfootery

I used to be appalled at what was said and posted in the world of social media. I don’t seem to be that way anymore, which worries me. Have we all become so indifferent to the acrimony towards each other that casually hurling threats openly is acceptable? When I see posts that contain excessive animosity and threats of violence, it just makes me numb anymore. That’s not a good way to feel… it’s being desensitized. I’m not going to blather on about how we should all get along because frankly, I don’t think that’s possible. There are too many people with too many different views and agendas. Let’s just hope if the day comes and this phenom is finally proven to exist, there can be some unity. Pessimist that I am, I just don’t think it will be possible. We can hope, though. Right?

On a better note, the short film, EVE, is in final editing and should be released in about 3 weeks. After that, it will be entered in Sundance and a myriad of other venues. It will also be pitched to Lionsgate and Sony Entertainment. In October, myself and the two directors, Alvin G. Morris and Dominic Orozco will be in the Portland area to meet up with the other screenwriter currently assigned to the feature adaptation. We will brainstorm on where we want this film to go. As it’s going to be an adaptation of both EVE and IRON MOUNTAIN RIDGE, it’s gonna be a roller coaster! I can’t wait to see where it all goes. If any readers out there have thoughts about what they’d like to see in the feature film, please let me know.

Stay tuned for updates on all things EVE. I will be on two radio shows in August and am doing an interview for a bigfoot documentary tomorrow! I will also have a vendor table at the annual Bigfoot Days in Willow Creek, CA on August 30th. Maybe I’ll see some of you there….

They Came, and We Conquered!

They Came, and We Conquered!

We had a great time filming EVE. It was crazy, scary, tedious, hot, demanding, LONG and downright amazing. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. The final product is going to be exceptional. Thank you to the cast and crew: Erin Elizabeth Reed, Dominic Orozco, Gerald Morris Jr, Debra and John Hale, Jamie Tippit-Orozco, Ashley Smith and James Glen Tucker. Oh yeah, and D.A. Bailey <3 Let’s DO THIS!


Finally, the day is here. The production team flies in this morning and we’re off to the mountains to make the short film, EVE. It will be an exciting week and I’ll be sure to post photos where and when I can. I’ll be signing off here for most of the time, but will have my *smart* phone with me (of course!).

CASK STUDIOS, thank you so much for this opportunity! Let’s do this!!

[If you purchase books from here this week, they will be mailed out Tuesday, June 17th]

Have a great week everybody! I know I will! :)

The talented members of CASK STUDIOS meet to discuss the script and scenes for the upcoming short film of EVE. Filming begins the week of June 9th! Additionally, myself and EVE’s director, Dom Orozco, will be on two radios shows next week – The Big Thicket Watch and The Bigfoot Field Reporter. Stay tuned for links to both shows coming up.

It Could Be Real….

Take a listen to the famous Steven Streufert of Willow Creek, CA discuss his thoughts and views on bigfootery and all things sasquatch-y. Steven is owner of Bigfoot Books and has done extensive work on verifying the exact location of the Patterson-Gimlin Film site at Bluff Creek. Steven is also the editor of IRON MOUNTAIN RIDGE.

Do You Think Bigfoot Is Patient?

I wonder… they gotta be! Patiently avoiding humans. Patiently avoiding civilization. Patiently waiting to be left alone. Patiently watching us. Intriguing, eh? I explore their traits more fully in IRON MOUNTAIN RIDGE, the second installment of The Elusive Trilogy.

Well, I wish I could be more patient! I’m having WordPress help with the PayPal buttons. You’ll be able to get the books here soon, I promise. I mean, if they can’t figure it out… well, forget it!
