HEAT WAVE is the newest project from writer/actor Russ Russo & Kiowa Gordon (the Twilight Saga). They are not only starring in this dark comedy, but they’re partially funding it themselves & want everyone to get involved!
This indie road film tells the story of two friends from Jersey living in Hollywood & find out Bon Jovi is giving a farewell concert back home. In 3 days! The movie will be filmed on the road from LA to New Jersey, focusing not only on their journey, but all the people they meet along the way.
“It’s about life , friendship, the winding roads, discoveries of self and all the people you meet along the way with a twist.”
Another actor from the Twilight Saga is joining the cast: Bronson Pelletier, as well as True Blood’s Natasha Alam. It will be directed by Award Winning SXSW & Sundance director Will Lamborn. Choosing to use crowd-source funding platform Kickstarter will not only give them creative control to tell the story the way they choose to, but gets people involved & excited. There’s something really special about the support & family aspect in the Indie community.
“There is a distinct value in having an intimate relationship to those who care most about our work, and we are thankful to Kickstarter for helping foster these relationships.”
