In early August, the cast and crew of Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot went to Northern California to investigate the most famous bigfoot footage of all time, the Patterson/Gimlin Film. The two weeks in Northern California was extremely productive, and it was nothing less than historic to participate in such a once-in-a-lifetime event.
The episode we shot during that time will be airing on Sunday, October 30th on Animal Planet, and I assure you it is one episode that you won’t want to miss. After the episode airs, you can look forward to my behind-the-scenes commentary (tentatively titled, the “Afterbirth of a Legend”) that will shed even more light on the happenings at Bluff Creek. My video commentary of this episode will unfortunately have to wait a while… I am currently on the road filming the second season of Finding Bigfoot, so I’m afraid we all have to wait a bit until I get back home to film it.
I have seen a rough cut of the episode, and it is excellent. There was so much more that happened which didn’t make the edit that you’ll be almost more blown away by what they didn’t include! (Keep in mind, we filmed around 200 hours of footage for this episode.) That’s why it’s good to have a bigfoot nerd like me on the cast to show you the stuff that I thought was cool that the editors didn’t include. I’m looking forward to your comments on the episode.
