We set out to create a series that was both humorous and meaningful. Late night discussions about what feminism, Asian culture, and a turtle monster should like look on the screen drove us to the production of 'Love, Work, and Other Demons.' 

We substituted Asian girls in school girl skirts, for actress Akemi Look in Taoist robes, yielding a sword empowered by celestial seals. She brought George Cheung, of 'Rush Hour,' 'Rambo: Part II,' and 'Avatar: The Last Airbender,' on board, and he encouraged us to fill our crew with young Asian Americans and to explore traditional Chinese folklore. From there we went to Petco and purchased Telula the turtle and made her a safe home on set. We poured blood, sweat, tears, and lots and lots of Mapo Tofu into the making of the pilot episode, but we can't finish it without you!

We want our statement to be seen, to be heard, and to kick common conceptions of "what sells". Donating today allows us to finish the project in the same manner we started, adding an original score and coloring, from Asian artists, animation following in the anime fashion, and kale to fuel our loyal turtle...our editor will probably eat some too.

Just in case you haven't seen this yet... introducing our wonderful actors!  This video was filmed during the rehearsal process.

Risks and challenges

We grew through the challenges of production, from filming overnight, to driving on the I-10 at rush hour to get to our shooting locations.
We believe that strongly in this project.
But we know there are still challenges ahead. We have to figure out how to successfully navigate the world of post and market a unique series like ours in an industry that can often feel generic.
With your backing, we will be able to utilize professionals that know how to do just that. And your support will show them that the screen is ready for us. Look out Hollywood, here come the demon hunters!
