THE HUNTED
Internet Series and Feature Film (in post)

One of the longest running web series online.  The feature has recently been funded through Kickstarter and is sceduled to begin production in July of 2012.

The feature film version of the web series takes place in Los Angeles "where dreams go to die".  An actor is bitten by a vampire and is thrown into a world where vampires hide in plain sight, and their victims (known as The Hunted) are fed upon until they are eventually turned into the bloodsuckers.  The actor fights back by assembling a small army of misfit slayers made up of sword-slingin' grocery clerks and soccer moms, and becomes a hero by helping others discover their own potential.
