Michigan is Bigfoot Country, did you suppose that? Our beloved state has racked up more that eleven hundred Bigfoot sightings over the years, plus ranks in the top 5 states for all-time reports on the legendary monster, however i’m not saying Bigfoot is real, but 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 love these deep, foreboding forests lend themselves to scary stories, and now I am attempting to live our dream, plus make the first horror film set plus filmed in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
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, and you see, because marijuana smokers talk a lot, plus 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 lady was stoned to the gills at the time; What can I say, all of us love our cannabis here in Ann Arbor! Because of the pothead mythology involved, it was undoubtedly self-explanatory to get a small amount of financing from the cannabis dispensaries. I promised them that when the film was done all of us could set up the world premiere screening in one of the Ann Arbor cannabis dispensaries. I will tell you about how it turns out in our next blog post!
