Wanzek established Bad Medicine Films in 2012. This North Dakota-based corporation, named after the family’s Minnesota lake property, produces and finances independent films. With Wanzek at the helm as Executive Producer, the company’s first movie, Ten Thousand Saints, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015. That same year, when a paleontologist friend sparked the idea for another story, Wanzek began working to produce his newest film, Valley of Bones, portions of which were filmed at his Pitchfork Ranch property near Amidon, North Dakota. Valley of Bones has been picked up by Sony for distribution and released in 2017. Additional films in various states of development by Bad Medicine Films include Compliance Check, Pilgrim, and Recall, among others.
