Bigfoot the Movie is a creature comedy that helps shine some light on the mystery of the Bigfoot sightings near Elwood City, PA. Southwestern PA is a hot spot for Sasquatch activity and in this comedy/horror flick mullets, guns and beer are in full supply as the movie skewers the Pittsburgh ‘Yinzer’ stereotype right alongside the Bigfoot myth.
The movie features Pittsburgh’s most famous and best loved celebrities like Curt Wootton (Pittsburgh Dad), Joanie Dodds (America’s Next Top Model), Bill Crawford (WDVE) Jim Krenn (stand-up comic, formerly of the WDVE morning show), Aaron Klieber (stand-up comic), Terry Jones (stand-up comic), Brenna Lee Roth (Killer Biker Chicks), and even veteran news anchor Darieth Chisolm (formerly of WPXI) among others.
We finally got to create a Bigfoot!! For this film we created the prosthetics for the big Foot himself along with all of the bloody fx moments and a sweet severed head. We worked on set nightly tending to Bigfoot and the blood fx as they happened.
