chasing legends : investigative documentary series (2021)
Chasing Legends is independently produced investigative documentary web-series that follows myself and fellow adventurers/Cryptid researchers Nash Hoover, Eli Watson and our crew as we actively investigate various Cryptid legends across the United States. We filmed four episodes altogether in locations such as Arizona in search of the Bigfoot like "Mogollon Monster", Louisiana's bayou dwelling werewolf like "Rougarou", the goblin like "Pukwudgies" of Massachusetts and Lake Champlain's lake monster "Champ" in Vermont and New York.
We successfully launched a Kickstarter in May of 2020 to secure funding for some production costs for the first season, with 146% funding by the end. The series is currently available for viewing now on the Chasing Legends YouTube channel, with episodes released each Friday in February, 2021.
- EPISODE 1: THE MOGOLLON MONSTER
- EPISODE 2: THE LAKE CHAMPLAIN MONSTER
- EPISODE 3: THE PUKWUDGIE
- EPISODE 4: THE ROUGAROU
lions of the east : Feature documentary (2020)
Lions of the East is a feature documentary that examines the decades of sightings of mountain lions & mystery big cats in New England, despite being "officially" extinct. Wildlife officials, biologists, researchers & eyewitnesses play a crucial role in this controversial topic unfolding across the region.
The film was originally set to premiere on Saturday March 14th at PPMtv in Portsmouth, New Hampshire but was sadly postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We will move forward with screening at a later date, check back in the future for more details on that and other screenings across New England!
