Guerilla Filmmaking

Under the sidebar heading of OTHER PROJECTS, I thought to point you in the direction of another project I was involved with. This is a movie for which I wrote the screenplay, co-wrote the story with its director Jon Ward.

Let's Put On a Show

We had video equipment and a group of talented actors and an impending WGA/DGA/SAG strike coming down the pike, so we decided to pursue some good old fashioned guerilla filmmaking. Written in 8 weeks and shot entirely in 2 weeks in the woods east of Seattle, we came away with a feature length comedy - Bigfeet - that runs 89 minutes.

The best that has come from it is that this is where I met my wife, Linda Sue, who was Art Director on the film.

Time has passed. Movies have come and gone. But we kept dreaming.

All that's left to say is that I never figured it would make it to the Bigtime. It is currently sharing space with plaster casts of the original Patterson footprint.

Go to BigfootSurplus to see for yourself that dreams do come true.
