Watching Sasquatch

A Medford filmmaker is in Jacksonville today to film part of a show about brothers who come to Oregon to look for Bigfoot.

Nathaniel Bennett will be film "The True Believer," a 30-minute film, at Old City Hall.

Other locations will include a large ranch near Gold Hill, sites up Wagner Creek outside Talent, Rogue River, Cave Junction, a doughnut shop on Biddle Road in Medford and the Bigfoot trap near Applegate Lake. Shooting starts today and will finish Sunday.

"It is not about big foot, it's about relationships and family relationships and how things change when you go through an event together," said Bennett.

The film will feature Thomas Shelton, a former Medford resident who now lives in Los Angeles and who apperaed in Bennett's first film, "Wake Up, You're Sleeping," and Alex Warren, a Mississippi actor.

"Wake Up, You're Sleeping" was shown at Ashland's Independent Film Festival last year and at the Sacramento International Film Festival. Bennett will enter the new film in the Ashland and Sacramento competitions, and also plans to enter other festivals around the country.
