is creating Film & TV Series




per month


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 book #24.
JoDa built a cabin on an old Christmas tree farm to write Departed Harvest, winning the Rhode Island Film Festival 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—in addition to Helltown, OH, the Love Canal and Celebrationtown, FL.
These allegorical stories galvanize our dystopian tale, set one week into the future, co-produced by Navajo actor, inspirational speaker and producer, Loren Anthony; and Cassandra Seidenfeld, writing a Woody Allen series.
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, Vermont. JoDa was not paid for a new roof he installed on the home and his beloved cat was killed by Luis’ pit bull. Then….
Now JoDa is producing Departed Harvest, Hard Power and Hippie Bus; raising his daughter with a wonderful woman; and building an indelible “Film Farm.”
