A monster story isn't any good if no one believes it.
A conspiracy theorist and scientific photographer are hired to help a woman track down her childhood monster. A race against time, money, and impending winter sends the three of them into the wilderness with nothing but a small trailer and a story. Snowshoe & Monster follows Summer, Rodger, and Hanna as they discover the secrets behind a woodland monster and struggle to come to a consensus about whether their findings deserve to end up in a reputed scientific journal, an online alien forum, or if they're better left alone.
Meet our talented team! Working together to create equal opportunities and enjoyable content for everyone.
Having had a recent experience with the elusive monster in the dead of winter Summer gathers a small team to help her find the monster and prove her story. Smart and driven she has no patience for messing around and will put herself in danger if it means getting closer to the answers she's looking for.
Hanna is a recent graduate and has combined her skills as a hunter, photographer, and biologist in order to help discover the monster. She's focused on making a name for herself and jumped on the potential of being behind such an important discovery. She is straightforward and logical which causes her to clash with Rodger.
Rodger is a firm believer in the supernatural. Being one of the only people who actively supports the existence of undiscovered monsters like bigfoot or the loch ness he is able to determine the truth behind various claims, photographs, and evidence surrounding the mystery of the monster. Summer brings him on the team in order to make the proof of their discovery as bullet-proof as possible. Rodger always says what's on his mind but reserves his wildest theories about the monster for the right moment.
Sometimes referred to as the "Haystack" Monster. No one but Summer has claimed to have had an encounter with the monster and all the photographs (mostly of the monster near farmers fields (hence the name)) have been dismissed by most conspiracy theorists. Summer suspects the monster to be a docile vegetarian but wants to know the truth behind the creature.
The most important part of the series to properly capture is the monster. Our team will use a combination of practical and special effects in order to create the monster from the story. Delving into the world of creature creation opens up endless possibilities for design and ultimately creating a tangible monster for the series will add the authenticity necessary for the world of our characters to come to life.
Besides the monster itself everything around the characters needs to blend together and enhance the story. The characters in Snowshoe & Monster rely on retro technology and old-school techniques in order to track and document the monster. This is reflected in their costuming, their gear, and is showcased through Summer's trailer (featured in the pitch video) that is promised to keep out the cold, but not necessarily the monster.
Snowshoe & Monster is meant to place the viewers in the place the characters so they can experience the story through their eyes. This will be accomplished using plenty of natural light and organic camera work. Following a unique colour scheme the look of the series will tie together the monster, production design, and the story. [Original Artwork by Aaron Belot]
