Feeling charitable this 4th of July?
Well, here's your chance to help fund an indie horror/thriller continuing to be shot in Estonia and Latvia. The project is called HYBRID VIGOR, coincidentally from a company called, wait for it, Hybrid Vigor Films. The horror-drama is being directed by American filmmaker Brandon Fowler, and to further fund the flick, a new Kickstarter account for the project has been created.
But before you decide to give or not, let's see what this sucker's all about...
HYBRID VIGOR is a feature film about life, death, violence, morality, immortality, love, and loss in the USSR during Soviet times, and in present day Latvia. It opens on frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia during the Soviet era, but most of the film takes place in present day Latvia. More details about the plot will be revealed in the coming months.
Not much to go on, but still a worthy cause I suppose. The film stars an emerging Latvian cast that includes Velta Buka in her feature film debut and also co-stars Jevgenija Mirosnicenko and Aleksandr Ivanov. All three actors are native to Latvia and no other parts have been officially cast. Fowler (Executive Producer of “Loren Cass”), who wrote the script, is also serving as the film’s producer.
