Project Notes: The Flying Guy is a quirky and sweet supernatural romantic comedy/fairy tale written by Tracy L. Morse. It is a story that can only take place in Los Angeles, where a flying man can have his 15 minutes of fame be over in 11 minutes, and just become part of the wacky landscape.

Tracy L. Morse has directed music videos for Empty Empyre, and Throttlebody, commercial spots for Long Live Crime Records, as well as writing and directing a TV Pilot based on his experiences as a tattoo artist called Inkslingers. Tracy’s short film Chasing Jason, created under his B-Movie alias ‘Chopper Denton’, played at eight international film festivals, and is still one of the most popular shorts on IFILM and YouTube. He’s written twenty-six feature scripts to date, as well as numerous pilots, shorts and treatments for a dozen producers and directors in Hollywood, including Mark Bristol (Natural Selection), 222 Pictures, Meng King Films, and Bohemia Entertainment. Tracy is a dedicated horror fan, and a self-proclaimed master of monster trivia.

Story Line: What would you do if you could fly? Become a superhero? Shave an hour off your morning commute?
Meet Adam Patnesky, a normal 20-something living and looking for love in Los Angeles. He works in a coffee shop, plays in a band, and oh yeah, he can fly. He doesn’t know how he can do what he does, so he only floats about fourteen feet off the ground, in case he falls. His 15 minutes of fame were over ages ago, and nobody really pays much attention to him anymore. Except the church. They think he’s evil incarnate. And the Circus of Angels desperately wants him to save their fading careers. All Adam wants to do is find love. Will he find the girl of his drea
