I wanted to tell snapshot stories of the lives of outsiders. The isolation that they feel, and the dichotomy of feeling alone in a city of 4 million people. I realized that metaphorically, the ultimate outsider is the supernatural being. Thus, an idea was borne...

"They Live Among Us"  is set in present day Los Angeles, far removed from the sun-washed landscape of blondes and Beverly Hills. It explores a grittier, more urban city  in which supernatural beings live anonymously amongst the masses of humanity. A gothic film-noir. The dark, seedy side of Los Angeles. Raymond Chandler meets Stephen King. Fallen angels who struggle to find grace in a place known as the City of Angels.

This Kickstarter campaign is to fund the first three episodes of the series:

"Another Piece of My Heart" - Episode 1 begins with sad-sack of all sad-sacks, who, in one brief moment, falls in love with a beautiful girl, only to discover, to his horror, that love hurts.

"Fall from Grace" - Episode 2 examines the anguish of unrequited love, as an angel and a prostitute become inexorably intertwined. 

"Let's Do Lunch" - Episode 3 is a cheeky look at the Hollywood machine, where cannibalistic power brokers literally feed on desperate Hollywood hopefuls.
