L to R: Andie Morgenlander as Jo and Erik Odom as Luke.
Joshua Overbay, creative director of the North Carolina based Solis Films, is certainly no stranger to Kickstarter. In fact, he and Producer/Director of Photography Nathaniel Glass, led a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2012 for their 2014 feature film AS IT IS IN HEAVEN which opened in many theaters across the country to critical acclaim. Overbay went on to release HOPE BRIDGE in 2015, starring Booboo Stewart (THE TWILIGHT SAGA) and Kevin Sorbo (GOD’S NOT DEAD).
Solis Films brands itself as a producer of projects with a story-based focus. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that Overbay’s production company is now tackling a study in the complexities of human connection like LUKE & JO. Additionally the filming process promises to be unique as it will be “shot chronologically with improvised performances” using two cameras. The film’s leads, Erik Odom (THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2) and Andie Morgenlander are especially enthusiastic with Odom taking to social media stating, “I’ve known Joshua Overbay for eight years. Love the guy, can’t wait to make his passion project LUKE & JO a reality.” With music composed by John Thomas and production design by Lauren Argo, we here at HNS share in Odom’s excitement.
All that is left now is the financing, well no it is not THAT simple, but Overbay along with the cast and crew IS looking for your support via Kickstarter! It is there you will find more extensive plot/character descriptions as well as further details concerning financial need. We encourage you to pledge (deadline is November 6th) as there are numerous and enticing awards available according to donation level.
