In addition to these special guests, vendors and artists, the post-apocalyptic digital series NORTHBOUND will be in attendance. Shot on-location in Michigan’s visually stunning Upper Peninsula region and made entirely by a volunteer cast and crew, in the towns of Iron Mountain, Norway, Gwinn, Sagola, with major Season 3 scenes filmed at Michigan Technological University, NORTHBOUND follows a lone father, Alex (Nate Alwine) as he fights to protect his comatose daughter, Crystal (real daughters Callie and Addie Alwine) in the wilds of a post-apocalyptic North America.  The series is available to view for free exclusively on Seeka TV, and is presented by global beverage brand Rip It Energy Fuel.  Catch up on NORTHBOUND Seasons 1 & 2 now, and look out for Season 3 to premiere spring 2020.
