The Upper Peninsula, Michigan-made survivalist digital series NORTHBOUND is holding an ongoing Series Tour to re-connect regional residents with Seasons 1 and 2, and introduce supporters to a new Season 3 Sneak Preview and series sponsors.
The series, co-created by U.P. Michigan natives Seth & Nathan Anderson and producer Jason Hagen, began in 2014 as a proof-of-concept for the forthcoming feature film NORTHSTAR, which will also be filmed entirely in the Upper Peninsula at locations in Houghton, Gwinn, Norway, Iron Mountain, and Sagola to start, with other U.P. locations to be added. The story follows the early days of lone father, Alex (played by U.P. actor Nate Alwine) as he travels a rugged post-Cataclysmic North American landscape with his comatose daughter, Crystal. Along the way, Alex gives his all to protect Crystal as they come into contact with other survivalist groups challenging each other for control over the North Woods.
Kurt Hauswirth had an opportunity to speak to Co-Creator, Seth Anderson, and Coordinating Producer, Fay Mannon Rahoi; they discussed what can be expected at the Ore Dock screening event:
NORTHBOUND will screen December 6th at the Ore Dock Brewing Co., 114 W. Spring Street, Marquette, MI 49855, 6pm Eastern. More dates and venues to be announced soon. All screenings will host filmmakers and cast, and attendees will be treated to costume and prop displays, and announcements of new regional and national sponsors; Ironwood, Michigan-based outerwear brand Stormy Kromer, medical apparel brand Dickies Medical, tactical brands NcSTAR and Damascus Gear, and sponsor raffle giveaways.
