If you choose to the the road less traveled, you should know...

Nova Road is based on a true story. It is a teen thriller that takes you on a wild ride as it uncovers the mysteries surrounding a rural country road known as "Nova Road.” Tragedies due to drag racing occur on Nova Road more than anywhere else in the country. Local urban legends tell us that it’s something else. When an accident on Nova Road leaves Riley Bryce without recollection of what happened, Riley convinces her friends to go back to Nova Road. What they encounter, will open your eyes to something frightful and unexpected.  What really happens on Nova Road? Support us and find out.

Risks and challenges

(1) Weather- since many of the scenes take place outdoors, the weather is a huge factor in coordinating shoots
(2) Set Decorating- this is challenging because there are often costs that come up that you weren't prepared for
(3) Props- it can be difficult and increasingly expensive to get the best props for a film

We are prepared to do whatever it takes in order to bring the words in the screenplay to life. As filmmakers, we "get things done." We plan to be resourceful and collaborative in order to work effectively and efficiently.
