Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A successful fundraising effort for a film maker with Duluth ties.

Filmmaker Jim Ojala ended up raising more than the $45,000 he needed for his project " Strange Nature" through the Kickstarter website.

The film promises to be an eco–thriller that exposes the deformed frog phenomenon that began in Minnesota in the early 1990's.

With the money now in hand, Ojala hopes to begin production of Strange Nature, here in the Northland, by September 2014.
