The cast and crew come from diverse ethnic backgrounds. Vincent Veloso is a Filipino-American Actor, director, musician and writer.
We're making this episode primarily to submit to the HBO Asian Film Contest. Science Fiction, fantasy and horror stories are ways to talk about the dark side and hopes of humanity in a way that can open ideas that may not be easy to talk about otherwise. As an Asian American filmmaker, I strive to make stories that are multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and stories with ideas that can stand alone regardless of gender, age or background. This story about overreach of Authority, the dangers of the unknown and ulterior agendas has to be told and will be told with your help. Thank you.
"NYPD special spectral division officers confront dark forces as they continue their dangerous search for a deadly secret.
Something now hunts supernaturals & the investigating NYPD officers & detectives;something that does not understand pity, fear, or pain"
We are happy and grateful that you will play a big part in the expression of these, and help us take a shot of winning a spot in the contest.

Risks & Challenges
As indie filmmakers, our voices and stories that deal with controversial and non PC topics have to be voiced. Filmmakers face the challenge of production and leading cast and crew through the challenges of completing a film shoot.
We've already created 3 episodes last season and want to keep giving opportunities for cast and crew from all backgrounds to showcase their talents both in front and behind the camera
Our team has navigated these waters before but we need your help and support to get this story to life through pre-production, production and post-production.
Other Ways You Can Help
Every little bit of contribution helps. We understand some people just can't contribute financially, but that doesn't mean we all can't help:
