The reviews are starting to come in about Shooting Bigfoot and they are not good for the film or Team Tracker.
"What SHOOTING BIGFOOT allows us to do is spend time with the people behind the findings, and see them for the kooks, cons and crazies they really are. This is one wild film, and one of the best documentaries of the festival for certain.
Bigfoot might still be out there. The beast likely still inspires believers and will continue to until its existence is conclusively proven or disproven. Matthews doesn’t purport to have any clear answers, and neither do I. One thing is for sure though – the four men profiled in this film sure don’t have any answers either."
read it yourself and make up your own mind
Stories of Dyer supporters getting up and leaving the movie, reports of it being a bigfoot suit and reports of only about 30 seconds of bigfoot footage and no HD footage.
If all of this is true then one can only assume it has been a hoax.
Also the silence coming from FB/FB speaks volumes, they had it all riding on a bigfoot body.
Dyer did make a few comments during his Google hangout and pointed some of the blame, of lack of bigfoot footage, onto Morgan Matthews. Dyer went on to promise the bigfoot body would be shown on Aug. 15.
Another interesting note is that Dyer did not attend the showing, but he could have had good reasons.
Several months ago I was covering this story pretty hard and I broke the news of some of the details but as time went on and the story changed, I got a bad feeling about it. The more I heard and seen the more doubt I had, so I just basically dropped the story as I didn't want to get drawn into all the personal bashing and fighting. I also was attacked just for covering the story but I was trying to get details for everyone. In any case, I would like to apologize to anyone who feels I was unfair in my reporting or was purposely aiding in a hoax.
If this is for sure a hoax, and it appears to be, there are many players who might just be finished in the bigfoot community. Hoaxing in the bigfoot community seems to be at an all time high, which really hurts true bigfoot research.
I still don't think this is totally over with yet and expect it to linger on for a little while.
Maybe things will get a little bit back to normal and all the fighting will end over the next few weeks.
Have a great week!
