Carlos M. Tovar (IMDB.com) is an independent filmmaker and producer from Houston, TX.  He has produced for numerous web series, including Placeholders25 and Married and Fore (in addition to his work on several feature films).

Quoted by Carlos on the Kickstarter Page:

“The idea of creating a deep story mythology for a teen superhero series that could also serve as an allegory for faith was too much to resist. After months of tightening the script, casting, development and pre-production (as well as filming for the first 5 episodes), Season 1 is ready to be completed!  I wanted to all but guarantee that the project would cross the finish line, so we have actually already shot and edited the first 5 episodes of the 10-episode 1st Season. The series is scheduled to begin airing in Fall of 2013, so we need your help to film and edit Episodes 6-10 of Season 1″

The Cast of More Than Human include: Alexandra Mauro, Xavier Price, Sadie Brooke, Scott Chase, Rowland Sauls, Sara Gaston, Brittany Djie, Eric Schneider, Isaac Fenter, Grace Powell, Seth Lee, Abby Williard and Michael Humphrey.

This project looks absolutely fantastic and I’m really looking forward to seeing it. I know that this project will meet the goal in order to make it but every bit of support counts so make sure you stop at their kickstarter page and support as much as you can!

Film/ TV Series Webisode Features: Paranormal, Burbank

Hello everyone and welcome to another new feature to the Movie Guide Blog, this time we’re taking the time out to feature the online film/TV series. The first series that we’ve decided to feature is Paranormal, Burbank.

Cover photo

Paranormal, Burbank is an online comedy series shot in the mockumentary style of Reno 911! or The Office. The series follows the misadventures of two amateur ghost hunters & the cast of quirky characters they encounter while investigating the paranormal. Paranormal, Burbank stars Deadhead’s Michael McKiddy and Rick Lundgren who has featured on such TV Shows such as Law and Order and Ed.

Now that you’ve got an understanding of the show, lets talk about the characters on the show;

Artie (Played by Rick Lundgren)
Artie is definitely the heart and soul of Spook Squad. He started the team several years ago when he dropped out of Community College to pursue ghost hunting full-time. With a background in science, Artie approaches each assignment using logic and reason, analyzing every detail before he can claim a haunting. His goal is to capture the one piece of indisputable evidence that will prove, once and for all, the existence of an afterlife. He is professional, organized, determined, and a complete wreck ever since his girlfriend Linda dumped him.

Dallas (Played by Michael McKiddy)
If Artie is the heart and soul of the team, then Dallas is definitely the ego. He is cocky, loud, obnoxious, and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Where Dallas lacks professionalism, he makes up for in enthusiasm. His heart is in the right place and he tries to contribute to the team but his ideas tend to lean toward drinking, strip clubs, or both. Dallas is a bit of a gearhead and is great with gadgets. He’s always tinkering and coming up with new ghost hunting devices. Unfortunately, like his ideas, they don’t always work. Artie suspects that the tough guy image is hiding something deeper underneath. Of course, he’d never tell Dallas that for fear of getting punched in the face.

Linda (Played by Chrissy Lawver)
Linda is smart, timid, and dreams of settling down in a nice house in the suburbs where she plans to raise three kids. Oh, and did i forget to mention? She’s also Artie’s ex-girlfriend. Artie’s decision to form a team of ghost hunters was becoming a constant source of tension on their relationship. While Artie was working hard to generate steady business with Spook Squad, Linda was ready to move on with her life. But her love for Artie wasn’t letting her leave. She continued to struggle with her feelings until they became too much for her to handle on her own. She decided to take a friend’s advice and seek help from a therapist. A therapist named Beuford.

Sky (Played by Angela Duffy)
The daughter of an ultra-conservative father, Sky is constantly coming up with excuses to cover up her promiscuous ways. Fortunately for Spook Squad, those excuses usually involve the ghost of James Dean. According to Sky, the long deceased rebel movie star has been known to force cigarettes, alcohol, and himself upon her from time to time.

Professor Teabag (Played by Daniel LaPratt)
Whenever Spook Squad needs advice, whether it’s about life or ghost hunting, they always turn to their mentor, Professor Teabag. As Artie puts it, “He’s like the Splinter to our ninja turtles.” An established figure in the industry of paranormal research, Professor Teabag has done his fair share of ghost hunting. He also claims to have punched a ghost in the face, which has become his life motto. Semi-retired, Professor Teabag spends most of his time writing a book about his ghost hunting adventures and consulting former students. He also likes to drink Kool Aid out of a brown paper bag.

Now that you’ve got an understanding of the characters and the plot! lets bring you a teaser of the show!
