NHE host Scott Murphy chats to director Zach Lamplugh about his debut feature “15 Things You Didn’t Know About Bigfoot (Number 1 Will Blow Your Mind)”. A found-footage mockumentary which Zach say’s is “Creep” meets “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.”
In the interview (the interview begins at 2:28) we talk to Zach about how him and lead actor Brian Emond came up with the story of the film which partly came out of their distaste for “cool vibe” companies and clickbait news. He also gets into how he was surprised to uncover just how many Bigfoot enthusiasts there are while making the film and how he regularly played the movie in front of a live audience during the edit.
Elsewhere in the interview Zach talks about how the movies festival run was affected by Covid, the many influences he drew from on the film (both horror and comedic), how he tried to strike the comedy-to-horror ratio and jokes about making a Nessie movie (as in the Loch Ness Monster).
