    Hello everyone,

    First of all, hi! I'm new to this forum, but have been a Buffy fan for a long time!

    Not really sure where to post stuff like this, but I figured the general discussion section will probably be best. I'm currently in post production for a Buffy short film I made called "Chosen" which I'm aiming to release late October.

    Here's a 17 second TEASER:


    The short film will serve as a pitch to garner support and interest in becoming a web series. I’m sure we can all agree that the Buffy lore must continue and I think now is the perfect time to do that. And I will do my damned hardest to make it happen. Please share the teaser in your social media profiles if you're so inclined :) I appreciate everyone's time and please feel free to ask any questions!

    Fun fact: Buffy was the reason why I wanted to get into the film industry in the first place :D I'm now a trailer editor in Hollywood.

    Good luck. I hope that you don't run into the kind of trouble the Axanar company has had with the "Star Trek" franchise.

    Is this supposed to be somewhere in the continuing (comics) canon or sometime else?

    Thank you! Yes, I've heard about that. I'm hoping not as well :p We'll see.

    This is all set in a completely separate universe. Thanks for asking!

    I'm assuming you're out of L.A? I'm too shy to act. Lol. I bet it's fun though.

    Hi @TheBigBadFilms

    How do you get funding together for a project like this, just out of interest?

    Hi @Athena!
    I funded the project myself :) Had to be very frugal with everything but that makes things more fun when we have to get creative. Thanks for asking!

    Wow that was so good. Loved the make up and special effects, very impressive. This should definitely be a web series, well done

    Nicely done. If I may ask, has the lady who played the Slayer had any formal martial arts training? She moves very well, and the fight scene was well executed.

    Thanks everyone!

    @white avenger, I believe she only had "stage fighting" under her experiences. Everything else she learned and rehearsed before we shot the film :)

    This is fantastic, I can't believe you self-funded this, the quality is outstanding. You and your team should be so proud of yourselves, it's an amazing achievement :)
