Gravitas Ventures have released the trailer for comedy “Bigfoot Famous” ahead of its November release.
The film, hailing from writer/directors Sam Milman and Peter Vass, takes the mickey out of vlogging, online crime solvers, and influencer-types.
When a viral video of Bigfoot emerges, a once-popular influencer goes on a mission to film a video with Bigfoot and regain her fame..
The dark comedy, filmed during the pandemic between the Redwoods and Los Angeles, was a completely improvised film that was shot in just 8 days. The film’s diverse cast includes Steph Barkley (Confess), Chris Kleckner (Groundlings), Anthony Ma (Scandal), Lauren Howard Hayes, Kelsey Gunn and notable comedians Atsuko Okatsuka and Marlon Webb.
”Bigfoot Famous” shows how far one influencer will go for fame and how consumed our society has become with getting likes and follows. “The vanity surrounding influencer culture and the need to feel loved by millions of strangers is on full display in the film” said directors Sam Milman and Peter Vass, at the same time. They followed up their quote with an immediate “jinx”. Peter saying it a split second faster than Sam. “It represents the most significant tale of our time…how to get more followers on social media.” Peter added.
Sam Milman and Peter Vass are the filmmaking duo behind Bad Weather Films. Their first feature, ”Laid in America”, received distribution from Universal Pictures in 2016 and starred KSI, Madison Iseman and Bobby Lee. Bigfoot Famous is their second feature film. Executive producers on the film include Joe Hodorowicz (”The Cyanide & Happiness Show”), Oran O’Carroll, and Adam Margules (”The Vigil”, ”Menashe”).
