The Bushmen Presents is preparing to begin production of the film, "To Find A Monster". The film, currently one of Indiegogo’s crowdfunding film projects, includes a well-known crew and talented assembly of actors and is reminiscent of the of the 80s feel-good films like The Goonies, Stand By Me and The Monster Squad.
"To Find A Monster" is the story of two friends, Lenny Thorpe and Patrick Barry. In the summer of 1988, these 8th grade outcasts, fed up with the bullies and cliques in their small town, decide to catch the attention of the town, and Lenny’s school crush, by making a legendary monster movie. The two were destined and determined to become the youngest filmmakers in the history of cinema.
Armed with a miraculous overnight script, an ill-inherited VHS camcorder, a small-town community of characters most akin to a holiday fruitcake, and the magic of those days when Innocence begins playing spin-the-bottle with Destiny, the two set out to find the key ingredient in any monster movie recipe... a MONSTER! Not before frustration sets in, Lenny and Patrick stumble upon a local pariah, a former circus sideshow by the name of Henry Bollinger, who suffers from great physical maladies. After some persuading to accept the role, the geeks finally have their “freak.”
Defying the odds, Lenny and Patrick finish the film. Through a fateful connection to Frank, a former Hollywood fixture turned indie movie house owner, the duo get to premiere their masterpiece for the whole town to see... along with one visiting V.I.P. The film is a hit whose success comes on the coattails of the invaluable lessons that only life, loss, and love can teach a boy longing to honor the man who left him behind to finish his story. “This is the tale about that spark that exists between two passing torches,” states the films producer, Matthew Donaldson

“We chose 'To Find A Monster' for a couple reasons. First, it’s a love story to the cinema of the 1980s, which is largely responsible for our desire to be storytellers ourselves; films like 'The Goonies', 'Stand By Me', 'The Karate Kid', and 'E.T.', to name a few. There was a certain “magic” those films had that transcended age and era, making them the classics we all love,” continued, Donaldson.
“'To Find A Monster' is literally for EVERYONE! Our goal with this film is to make a motion picture that is appropriate, relatable, and entertaining for all ages; from the grandparents to the goldfish. And, selfishly, this film is for us. We love everything about this story and the privilege we get to tell it.” Donaldson concluded.
