Story of Brothers
During the last few days of college, Brodie and Cody Lowe were eating together in the universityâ€™s cafeteria, working through new film stories and ideas. The idea for â€œThree Countâ€ â€“ a story that they would be able to film on a shoe-string budget â€“ was born that day.
Although they had never worked any professional wrestling shows before, they were able to find a retired professional wrestler by the name of Robert Deputy and utilize his expertise. Showing the two brothers the proper techniques and correct jargon of the world of professional wrestling, Mr. Deputy proved to be a valuable resource in preparation for the film. The two brothers gained weight in an effort to build their bodies reminiscent of "old strongmen" who lived in a time when weights and dumbbells were foreign to most others.
By using their athleticism and showcasing their talents as actors and writers, Brodie and Cody spent the next year writing the screenplay and choreographing the wrestling matches, seen in â€œThree Count,â€ while working and saving money for the filmâ€™s meager budget of $2,000 over the next year.
Adam Scherr, who lifted at Iron Physique, the same gym the brothers had been lifting at since high school, was interested in being a part of the film. Soon after shooting his scene for â€œThree Count,â€ Adam won several strongman competitions, including the Arnold Classic, and signed with WWE. He is now wrestling under the ring name known as â€œBraun Stowman.â€
