"SQUATCH" is an indie film that has been a personal project of ours for a very long time. We have taken our fascination of Bigfoot & combined it with our love of Horror movies. The story takes place in the Pacific Northwest where a few college friends venture into the woods for a weekend outing. Strange things begin to happen and the local Sheriff tries to solve the mystery. He soon realizes that the missing students have stumbled into a Bigfoot feeding ground. Fearing for their lives, he organizes a man hunt. But the Creature is already stalking, hunting, feeding on the victims one by one....or is he?
My name is Doug Hudson and I am an experienced filmmaker and special effects artist. I don't like to talk alot about myself, so if you want to know more here is a link to my IMDB
This campaign is important to us so we can provide basic essentials to all the hard working people involved in this film. Everyone on this film is doing it on their own free time. No one is being paid. All the actors that are cast & crew for filming are volunteers. They are solely doing this because they love the script/project and want to be a part of it.
Your donations will go to provide meals for the Cast & Crew during filming. Also toward logistic costs for shooting a scripted outdoor feature film in the Pacific Northwest (i.e.: permits, rentals, facilities).
*The biggest cost of this film is of course the "Bigfoot". But since I am an effects artist, I already have one. I have taken on this cost along with all the practical effects. So this is the only time you will ever see an indie film being made about a Bigfoot where we actually have a great looking Bigfoot! All done in that 80's horror style, full of blood & gore.
What We Need & What You Get
We are just asking for the bare minimum budget to feed & provide basic services for our cast & crew for a 4 week filming schedule.
