Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes picks up after a "Bigfoot Hunter" claims to possess the body of a dead Sasquatch. A disgraced investigative journalist stakes his comeback - and the lives of his documentary film crew - on proving the find to be a hoax.
Shock Till You Drop: Let's talk Bigfoot. Growing up, where did you fascination with this creature begin?Corey Grant: Six Million Dollar Man. [laughs] Very serious. That was the first time I ever knew about Bigfoot.Shock: Nice! Okay, so where did The Lost Coast Tapes come from for you...beyond your passion for the Six Million Dollar Man?Grant: Well, I'm a big fan of Bigfoot. Anything supernatural, I would watch and research. Then, two friends Bryan O'Cain and Brian Kelsey, who wrote the script, Kelsey grew up where a lot of Bigfoot sightings occurred. His family owns this cabin deep in the woods and he said, as a little kid, he would remember Bigfoot footprints he would take pictures of. So, he came up with a treatment for the script. And we thought about doing a good story that stayed true to the actual story and that it would be a no-brainer. It just snowballed into getting the movie made.Shock: Did you determine early on that it would be a found footage film?Grant: I'm more of a traditional filmmaker and the only found footage films I had seen were The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield. I wasn't so much a fan of found footage until last year. We went back and forth with the script on this - going between traditional narrative and found footage, but we wound up making it a part of the script. We then did traditional and found footage, but wound up cutting out all of the traditional stuff because it just didn't work. With the found footage, it had to be very well choreographed. It looks random, but the shots we had were very well crafted to get the compositions that I wanted.
And finally the answer we were hoping for.
Shock: Are you considering a sequel?You can read the entire interview at Shock Interview: Director Corey Grant of Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes
Grant: It was set up that way, but it's definitely going to happen. The thing is whether we do something traditional or more found footage. The thing is, I didn't know there were that many found footage films coming out now and that there was a stigma coming with it. Now I have to fight around it and that's a bummer. It's going to happen, we're just not sure what style it will be yet.
