Everyone has a Bigfoot. What’s your Bigfoot?

Thank you to everyone who has watched the film and felt a connection with Dallas and Wayne.  We will continue to post updates here periodically.  Fortunately this project has been a tremendous success (in terms of finding an audience) thanks to Dallas and Wayne and the many people, film festivals, and others (Oscilloscope) who have helped push the film onward.  My goal all along has been to help get Dallas and Wayne’s story out to people who will appreciate it, and we have been lucky enough to do just that.

The film has hopefully taken on a life of its own thanks to our festival run and distribution through Oscilloscope Pictures.  It is available on Netflix via Watch Instantly, and you can purchase your own copy through Oscilloscope, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Borders.  To keep up-to-date, you can also visit Dallas’s YouTube page.

You can help spread the word
If you enjoy the film, you can help spread the word by:

  1. Encouraging your friends to check out the film and
  2. Writing something nice about it somewhere online (Amazon, IMDb, etc.)

Are you pursuing your Bigfoot?
One thing that has become even more apparent throughout the journey with the film is just how much I can relate to Dallas and Wayne.  In many ways, making a film about Bigfoot researchers is very similar to Bigfoot researchers trying to prove that Bigfoot exists.  I believe we all have some kind of passion or dream, and it’s crucially important that we devote time to pursuing it.  We will of course encounter obstacles, challenges, and hurdles.  Sometimes those passions or dreams are ones the world might be used to, and other times they may be something more nontraditional, more outside of the norm.  Regardless though, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, do us all a favor and pursue them.  Make your own life and the lives of the people around you more interesting and more meaningful by doing what you love.  There is no other answer that will lead to any greater fulfillment than that.

Everyone has some kind of Bigfoot in their lives.  For me, my Bigfoot was to make a film about two Bigfoot researchers in my hometown.  What’s your Bigfoot?  And what are you doing to pursue it?

If you have any questions for me, feel free to email them to jay@bigfootdoc.com or leave them below in the comments.  I’ll try to respond as soon as I can.  Please note though that I am not a Bigfoot researcher or a Bigfoot expert.

I enjoyed this movie and want to know if there is any future plans for another movie from Wayne and Dallas?

Thanks, Lin
