Stars of the hit movie “In Hiding A Bigfoot story” took to Facebook with an interview that lasted just over an hour. Breakout star Mark Vermont and Charlie Cogburn talked about everything from the Sundance nominations to the Fake Flesh Film Festival in Canada. Charlie started the interview with Mark by asking him about fame and how it’s changed his life “It’s a surreal thing, Fame” Mark told Charlie. He went on to tell us “Ive been stopped by cops and they recognize me and ask for an autograph” and yes even the town where the film was made has been seeing it’s share of fame.
Charlie tells us more about the making of the film “The towns folks are genuinely great people. The support from everyone has been overwhelmingly awesome!” and to think on a shoe string budget the film would be impacting so many people. Mark Vermont has been praised for his interactions with the fans and just a few weeks ago at a press junket the kids told him they wanted to be like him when they grow up.
Fame hasn’t went to anyone’s head as they talk about the idea of a sequel asked by a watcher on Facebook. The two Charlie and Mark confirmed that a sequel is in the works. Even the films director was watching the interview and confirmed he was down if they are down. The details are still in the pre-production stages as to what the film’s sequel will be about. Charlie did tell us this “I think we all return and play different characters” some would call this a brilliant idea.
The film’s budget was around $500 and that was to cover the directors roundtrip flight from Seattle, Washington to Orlando, Florida. Mark was so impressed that he got casted as one of the characters that he said “Look I had no idea they were filming me. So most of the stuff you see in the film is just me being me”. It was reported that last week an autograph from Mark was sold on Ebay for an estimated $500. Which is interesting because the film cost $500 to make.
As the interview began to wrap up one message both Mark and Charlie wanted to get across was that laughter and family is needed more today. They went on to talk about politics, new grandchildren, and their love for their wives. Charlie closed with this “Love one another. Tell someone that they mean something in today’s world. It just might save a life”.
The film is set to debut on the 27th of this month at the 6th annual Fake Flesh Film Fest in Canada.
