Swan Song of the Skunk Ape

A film by Brad Abrahams

The story of South Florida's strangest bipedal resident, as told by the rare few who claim they've encountered the creature. A man-hunter, cryptozoologist, indigenous conservationist, and erotic photographer, paint a portrait of a people and place as endangered as the beast itself.

“It exists…”

Maybe. A short-form documentary on South Florida's strangest bipedal resident, as told by the rare few who claim they've encountered the creature. At over 1.5 million acres, the 'Glades are the largest wilderness area east of the Mississippi, with thousands of acres untouched by man. If indeed something this strange could exist, it would surely be here. Produced by Curator Pictures. More info on their story page.

I love to film things, tell stories, and read on the subway. I'm pretty sure blue whales are my power animal.
