Mike Familant, a 29-year-old EMT by day, is a bigfoot researcher, producer and lead investigator from NorthWest New Jersey. He first got into bigfooting in 2011 on an expedition in North Florida, where him and a friend experienced rocks being thrown at them while sitting around a camp fire. Since then, he has made it his personal goal to find out exactly what is roaming the woods of America.
In 2016, after becoming frustrated with the lack of true research expedition shows on TV, he created his own show, called “In the Shadow of Big Red Eye .” The show is currently in the 4th filming season, which will primer this fall.
In 2018, Mike also created a docuseries called “Squatchables ,” which was created for people who are just getting into bigfooting, sort of a “Bigfooting 101.”
“With a passion for bigfooting and a history in video editing, I decided to make the first REAL show about what expeditions are truly about.
