From Gary Lewis’ High Desert Outdoorsman TV show, we travel to the big island of Hawaii in search of feral pig, goat and sheep. Spotlighting fishing and hunting in the northwest as well as other spectacular locations, the multi award winning show aired in five states to an audience of nearly 3 million homes. The show has since been renamed Gary Lewis’s Adventure Journal and is produced by Zion Pictures in Sisters, Oregon.
Filmed on location in Central Oregon in the Summer of 2009, Producer/Director Brad Douglas embarked on his first independent SAG, 30 minute short film project called BIG. On a budget of just $20,000 and five days of shooting, BIG is a story about an LA film crew traveling to Oregon to obtain video footage of the legendary Bigfoot. Headed by documentary producer Reese Dickson (Sven Holmberg) and accompanied by director Julie Govern (Sarah Chipowsky) and an out of work actor Blake James (Dwight Slade), the team heads deep into the wilderness of the Sierra mountains on horseback hell bent to get the footage at any cost. Accompanied by local Sasquatch expert Mia Baxter (Marlyn Mason) and back country old timer Ted Stone (Ted Hiller), they end up getting more than they bargained for. The film also features a cameo appearance by Derek Sitter as a shaken local farmer who encountered the beast face to face on his ranch. Though more of a first film technical achievement, BIG is an example of film making on the cheap while still utilizing professional talent, areal filming, horses, breathtaking locations and cinematic artistry.
