Director Statement

We traveled to the heart of Bigfoot country near Mt. St. Helens in Skamania County, Washington. Our aim was to question the local long-time residents, to hear what kind of stories they might tell about the legendary creature. I spoke with at least 15 people, but only managed to persuade three of them to go on camera. The best they could come up with was a vague wish that Bigfoot might be real.

That's why we added dramatic music and Bigfoot SFX to the cave scene - to evoke a feeling of dread that the creature is indeed real, if only in a whimsical way.
