Hi everyone, we've got some big updates to share with this issue. First, the bad news: our team has made the careful decision to halt production for the remainder of 2020. There are several factors that have gone into this hiatus, but our primary concern is that while the Upper Peninsula of Michigan has seen relatively low case numbers over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are now experiencing a noticeable uptick as we enter the fall. We do not want the NORTHBOUND
production to jeopardize the health of the many people required to be on set during a given shoot. Everyone involved in this project is like family to us, and since we can't guarantee the safety of those we care about, it's become obvious to postpone.
This is not the first time we've faced delays, and we view this moment as an opportunity. Over the last year, we've been able to take stock of what we've accomplished, improved what remains to be shot, and can already see that once finished, NORTHBOUND
3 will hit a quality level beyond our wildest creative dreams. Next year, our plans include not just shooting the rest of Season 3, but also festivals, a Michigan world premiere, a wide online release with Seeka.tv
, and finally, a transition into work on the NORTHSTAR
feature film. Right now, we are in the middle of the stream, and the next steps are apparent despite the obstacles. Make no mistake, we are as committed as ever to finishing what we've started with this one of a kind community.
Now the good news. We feel we owe you all a first real look at what we have in store with NORTHBOUND
3. Below is a teaser made available exclusively to you, our subscribers. You have supported us through thick and thin, and we hope this is an exciting glimpse at what is just the tip of the iceberg.
