Directed By Zach Lamplugh and co-written by Lamplugh & Brian Emond, The Vice Guide to Bigfoot is a paranormal comedy follows a millennial reporter, Brian (Emond) on the most important assignment of his career: Bigfoot. As the Austin Film Festival was gearing up to begin, I got the chance to sit down with Lamplugh and discuss the film and how it captures the spirit of "Popstar and Creep."

In this interview, we discuss how Lampulgh and Edmond designed the comedy in the script and ultimately how much was improvised. Additionally, we discussed what parodying Vice was like, whether or not they worked with them, and ultimately how ridiculous the premise of Vice videos usually are. We also discuss Lampulgh's background making short films and how this naturally progressed into a feature film with The Vice Guide to Bigfoot.

The Vice Guide to Bigfoot celebrates its World Premiere at the Austin Film Festival on Friday, October 25 at 9pm at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Village.

The film will have a second screening on October 29 at 9:15pm at Galaxy Highland. Zach Lamplugh and Brian Edmond will be in attendance for post screening Q&As after each screening.
