On the November 11, 2012 broadcast of CBS Sunday Morning, two clips from the forthcoming Bigfoot movie Exists got some surprising national air time. CBS screened the teasers and interviewed two of the many important figures behind the success of this soon-to-be released film.
Exists’ producer Mark Ordesky and director Eduardo Sanchez speak to CBS’ Serena Altschul.
CBS noted on their site (see here) the following:
Director Eduardo Sanchez’ first movie, “The Blair Witch Project,” became an instant horror classic. Now he’s making a movie about Bigfoot. “I want to see a Bigfoot so badly, I made a movie about it.”
For Sanchez and producer Mark Ordesky [executive producer of The Lord of the Rings trilogy], Bigfoot has been a lifelong obsession.
“There’s just something about it being just out of reach, not being able to see it,” said Sanchez. “It’s like this quest.”
A quest, Ordesky added, “that goes ever onward.”
Sanchez believes Bigfoot deserves more respect: “Bigfoot’s been kind of a joke lately. You know, he’s in commercials, and even though I love that humor, I’m always thinking, ‘Man, I wish somebody would make a film that made Bigfoot scary again.’”
