JoDa Hodge is a novelist, filmmaker and director of the New York Film and Television Festival. He was born to a teacher and a carpenter from Jersey on a Vermont commune near the abandoned Lyndonville Air Force Station—whose guards first saw the lights in the sky later to “abduct” Betty and Barney Hill.

With degrees in English, Psychology and Communications, he quit his WCAX-TV News cameraman job, rode his Harley solo cross-country and published Freedom Road—a travel memoir battling the broken American Dream. Now he is penning books #18 & 19.

JoDa built a solar cabin on an old Christmas tree farm to write 33 one-hour episodes of Departed Harvest, winning the Rhode Island Film Fest Screenplay Competition and more.

Inspirations: JoDa’s friend was a grower in the deadly Humboldt underground to finance his Rock band, blended with JoDa’s commune-Air Force Base heritage—and the loss of his little Brother, the legendary Nate.

These allegorical stories galvanize our dystopian tale, set one week into the future, starring Navajo actor, inspirational speaker and producer, Loren Anthony.

JoDa Kickstarted, wrote, produced, directed, shot and edited a short Departed Harvest film  (with an awesome film team!) at the actor Luis Guzman’s home in Sutton, VT. JoDa’s beloved cat was killed by Luis’ pit bull and….

Now JoDa is raising his daughter, harvesting medicinal mushrooms for cancer patients and building an indelible “Film Farm.”




 

Departed Harvest is irresistible and magnetic!”

— Ken Rotcop, Hannah Barbara Head of Creative Development & JoDa’s writing mentor

Kira Niehaus

Actress Stunts Producer

Kira Lynn Niehaus was born in Boulder Colorado. Her passion for acting really started when she was 5. At 13 she was signed with a leading modeling and talent agency in Denver and shortly after was in her first independent film. At the age of 16 she graduated high school to pursue her acting career. Just a few months later at 17 she was in a near fatal accident and her career came to a quick halt. After years of recovery it was not long before she was pursuing her passion again. With teeth still missing and braces still on from the accident she auditioned for a small roll in the independent film “Generosity” where she was cast as one of the 5 main characters.
