A group of Gardner-Webb University communications students is learning about interviewing, video editing and documentary production techniques this semester—while searching for evidence of the existence of a real-life bigfoot just a half-hour from campus. Students in Dr. Jim Lawrence’s Intermediate Video Editing and Rebekah Rausch’s Documentary Video Techniques classes have worked together to produce “Finding Knobby,” a short film that explores the story of a creature that was reportedly spotted five years ago by Tim Peeler, a resident of nearby Casar, N.C. The creature has become known as “Knobby” since its first reported sighting near Carpenter’s Knob in Cleveland County in the late 1970s.
