Drifter: Broken Road, written, directed, and produced by Jason Brasier, on DrifterSeries.com. A Top 10 finalist in the Mingle Media Audience Choice Awards, Drifter: Broken Road follows a figure known as Drifter, portrayed by Vanessa Leinani, fresh off her role from the film 180, and currently filming her role as Detective Jade in the web series, Bail Out. In the story, Drifter befriends the owners of a trading post on her trail to revenge, five years after a second civil war. It is here that some of Drifter’s recent actions and past come back to haunt her.
The series brings Missouri State University Graduate and indie filmmaker, Jason Brasier’s sci-fi western vision to life on the small screen. Jason has been making films since he was a child, and the journey it’s taken to get to Drifter: Broken Road has been a long, but enjoyable one. A big western and science fiction fan, Jason said, “It was fun blending two of my favorite genre’s together and telling an old fashioned story in a new medium.”
The series also stars the talented Rodney Wiseman as the mysterious Moses Breckenridge. One of Rodney's recent feature film projects, The Frontier Boys, is on the ballot for the 2012 Dove Awards.
The rest of the amazingly talented cast includes Ryan Smith, Hannah Duncan, Nick Herra, Ryan Shields, Todd Hansard, Dale Gehris, Blake Flageolle, Jerry-Mac Johnston, Zac Rantz, Michael Brasier, Scott New, Andrew Long, Kevin Keppy, and Angel Gonzales. Drifter: Broken Road is the first web series production for American Wasteland Entertainment (LLC), a new production company focusing on online based entertainment and film, owned and operated by Jason Brasier and Brittney Greer.
