In 2018 the first "Small Town Monsters: On the Trail of" was released. On the Trail of is what happens when one filmmaker takes on the challenge of covering a monsterous topic. To follow up Aleksandar Petakov's "Champ", volume 2 will focus on the entire Bigfoot phenomena through centuries of reports and modern-day information.
Directed and told from the perspective of Seth Breedlove, "On the Trail of... Bigfoot" was filmed across the United States during 2018. In scope, it's one of the most ambitious projects Small Town Monsters has ever attempted. But don't look for our typical recreations or terrifying animated sequences here. "On the Trail of" is a scaled-back, ground level approach to epic subjects.
A series that allows one filmmaker to bring their own, singular vision to a huge subject and offers a unique storytelling opportunity for the audience, as well as the teller. In March 2019, you'll travel to Mount St Helens, home of one of the most infamous Bigfoot encounters in history, as well as the mountainous regions of the Olympic Peninsula, the darkest southern swamps of Arkansas, the temperate rainforest -like regions of southeastern Oklahoma, the lushly forested Carolina, the hills and hollers of Kentucky and West Virginia, and the dense wooded sections of New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
Along the way you'll revisit some places you've traveled to in our films (Minerva, the Chestnut Ridge, and Fouke), and see some familiar faces. Our next poster will be dropping in 2019 and our second full trailer is coming in the weeks ahead. Stay tuned!
