This spring brings exciting news for Michigan-made independent films, as the feature film "Nowhere, Michigan
" comes out.
Directed by Iron Mountain native Robert Vornkahl, the film was set in a small Upper Peninsula town and shot partially in Iron Mountain and the surrounding area last year. Now, the filmmakers are seeking help with Kickstarter crowdfunding to finish up the post-production work and get a good foundation for distribution and launch onto the festival circuit.
A new trailer for the film is up online
from BVB Films, its production company, and teases the story of a young man fleeing from the scene of a murder, ending up as far north as he can get, in the U.P., where he starts to find connections and a new life. It stars Tequan Richmond (General Hospital, Everybody Hates Chris) in the lead role, with Jenna Boyd (The Missing), Christina Scherer (The Intern), Richard Riehle (Office Space), and Ashlie Atkinson (Us & Them).
The Kickstarter has a few more weeks to go
and is aiming for a goal of $20,000.
