Experiencing Interruptions?

The Altors

A couple haunted by their past is forced to decide whether love can survive beyond life. Set in today’s world, The Altors explores the various inhabitants of our cities, the isolation they may feel, the battles they lose while among the living and how it often traps them in a never-ending cycle of guilt and regret. It is with the overwhelming feelings of a life left undone, where those who are on stuck between the land of the living and the beyond that our Altors arrive to help them on their way.

DIRECTOR: GREG PAYTON. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, currently I’m based in Los Angeles, California. I’m an EMMY® winning creative dedicated to developing concepts across multiple platforms. Throughout my life and career, I've learned you don't get through obstacles alone, but with allies. My work starts with an idea, a passion, a vision, but ends with a team filled with creativity, drive and the ability to execute. I’ve directed a number of short films and web series over the years. Notably, I worked in commercial advertising with HAVAS WORLDWIDE, followed by the NEW YORK CITY MAYOR’S OFFICE creating content exploring the city’s tourism. In Los Angeles, I executed a fashion digital series with BUNIM-MURRAY. I teamed with Sean “Diddy” Combs to help launch music television network, REVOLT T.V., leading to a KEY ART AWARD. Currently, I create content for SPECTRUM NEWS 1 and their series, L.A. TIMES TODAY. Most recently, my short film, KILLING ANANN, screened for the Hollywood Dreamz International Film Festival, Action on Film Megafest and Golden State Film Festival. My LOST CANYON short film series is now streaming on the Reel Women's Network.

Director Statement

From Lisa L. Wilson: This film is very special to me. After the loss of both my grandmothers within a year, I was compelled to think about what happens when we leave this world. The Altors gave me the outlet to believe in something bigger than ourselves. It was my way of healing and helping others to do the same. Knowing that there's love in the afterlife with our loved ones that have passed before us. Knowing that we can leave all of our stress and weight behind and start again in the beyond was a way to lift the sadness while still celebrating life. I hope that this film brings joy to whomever watches it and gives hope to those who've lost. We've all lost someone so if you could, what would you do to save the love of your life?

Thank you for your consideration.

Lisa L. Wilson
