MI is Bigfoot Country, did you guess that? Our beenjoyed state has racked up more that eleven hundred Bigfoot sightings over the years, and ranks in the top more than four states for all-time reports on the legendary monster, but i’m not saying Bigfoot is real, however there is something in the woods that has been scaring people for a hundred years or more! This is what inspired myself and others to want to make horror films, because it feels like these deep, foreboding forests lend themselves to scary storiesâ€¦ Now I am attempting to live our dream, and make the first horror film set and filmed in Ann Arbor, MI.
I didn’t need a lot of money because this would be a “fake documentary” style of found footage horror film, so I went to a few Ann Arbor cannabis dispensaries for financial backing, then you see, because marijuana smokers talk a lot, and spend a lot of time in the woods around Ann Arbor, they are a prime source of stories about Bigfoot.
Nine times out of ten, if someone around Ann Arbor says they had a Bigfoot sighting, that guy was stoned to the gills at the time, then what can I say, every one of us love our cannabis here in Ann Arbor! Because of the pothead mythology involved, it was entirely easy to get a small amount of financing from the cannabis dispensaries. I promised them that when the film was done every one of us could set up the world premiere screening in a single of the Ann Arbor cannabis dispensaries. I will tell you about how it turns out in our next blog post!
