BROS. (2017) Independent Film Made in Iowa

Independent film producer and director Don Tjernagel of Waterloo, Iowa has been working hard to release his micro budget comedy BROS.(2017) on November 8th of this year.

BROS. (2017) is an independent film that was produced and directed by Don Tjernagel with a meager budget of only $5,000 and is set to be released on November 8th, 2017. The fact that a movie has been made with such a slim amount in itself is an amazing accomplishment for the filmmaker working in a community that has no history or experience with filmmaking. Tjernagel was offered $100,000 by the Los Angeles film investor to complete the film in another location but instead chose a lesser amount to shoot in Waterloo, Iowa. “I believe in his abilities, and wanted to utilize his talents in another location that would appreciate his unique vision and work ethic. I am very impressed by what he was able to do with the small amount he was allotted. It is truly remarkable,” said Ari Leib.

BROS. (2017) will premiere at the Marcus Crossroads Theatre in Waterloo, Iowa on November 8th, 2017.

“We made a very positive film portraying Waterloo, Iowa. This was very challenging to complete, but I am still happy I did this here. I love this town and the people. I think Waterloo has a chance to become a viable place where a lot of independent films could be made,” said Tjernagel.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
