Bobcats Love Bigfoot

Well, this Bobcat does...  I ran into comedian and filmmaker, Bobcat Goldthwait, in the Orleans ranger station while on a recent trip to Bluff Creek, CA.  Just like pretty much everybody else, he loves bigfoot too, and was "in town" doing a film project on everyone's favorite unknown biped (more info on that as it develops).

One of my all-time favorite movies is Shakes the Clown, so I was thrilled to meet Bobcat.  I gave him a right and left foot of the Cripple Foot casts as a gift and took a couple pictures with one of my favorite actors and directors.

As it turns out, Bobcat loves Finding Bigfoot, and invited me to do a small appearance in his newest project. Since this project centers around bigfoot, you'll be sure to hear about it on this blog as it grows closer to completion.

Bobcat's newest films are a bit more serious than his previous comedic efforts.  He now writes, directs, and produces movies about a wide variety of subjects, serious or lighthearted, and does so on his own dime.

...but just because I love it so much, here's a short promo for Shakes the Clown.  After all, who doesn't love an alcoholic clown?
