“MOMO is a warm and touching story of a father and son getting to know each other better. Strong family values come though brilliantly. It’s a real pleasure to watch them work at the relationship that they both want to strengthen. When the urban legend Missouri Monster shows up and threatens their lives, there is no question of the love and devotion that the father and son have for each other. I never thought there could be such a thing as a “Feel Good Monster Movie” but MOMO certainly fits that description.” Ed Stephens – Zed Fest: Festival Founder

Zed: What was the inspiration for MOMO?

Kevin: My endeavor to make truly excellent and broad-based motion pictures extends naturally to MOMO, as well as my desire since I was a child “to make a really good and scary Bigfoot movie!” There have been many attempts and few real successes. I remember a film called Sasquatch: The Legend of Bigfoot I saw at a movie house in the 1970s, and it scared me. I’m not sure why. I would likely find it cheesy if I saw it today. Still, it stayed with me. And while there have been a number of attempts at bringing the legendary Bigfoot to the screen, few were successful at being truly effective. It occurred to me that the writers, producers and directors, for the most part, approached their projects as horror films, and the star was the monster, with attention to plot and the human lead characters being jettisoned in favor of monster thrills. MOMO, on the other hand, as discussed in the next section, will be approached as an adventure with the human characters being the focus, and the monster merely providing the plot complication to develop the journey of the human characters.

As the movie’s creator, it is my hope to recreate or surpass the success of Open Waters (2004) and The Blair Witch Project (1999) before that. With an excellent script, outstanding new actors and “Missouri’s Bigfoot”, Momo (short for Missouri Monster), It is my belief and those of T E K’s associates that MOMO could be that exceptional nugget that rises above the procession of independent thrillers continually being produced.

Zed: What are your plans and/or achievements with MOMO?

Kevin: I hope to make MOMO! Perhaps to co-star with my son in it! And for it to be the most successful low-budget indie feature in motion picture history! A win in Zed Fest might finally help us get the notice of an angel.

Kevin is looking for financing to make MOMO
