Like Buffy, comics, and kick-ass female characters? Then this LURK: A Fray Fan Film Kickstarter might be right up your alley!
The creators want to make a short film based on the Buffyverse comics called Fray. The comics are set in 23rd century Manhattan. Melaka Fray, a young thief who struggles with family tragedy, has to come to terms with being a Slayer.
“In the ten years since Buffy has been off the air, there has been a Buffy Summers-shaped hole in our hearts. We love the characters in Fray, and we thought that telling the story of Melaka Fray on film was both a natural progression and the perfect opportunity to make something cool for the fandom.
Lurk is our contribution to the Whedonverse. It is our little way of giving back and continuing the Slayer legacy, and we need you, the fans, to help us make it!”
Here’s a look at some of the rewards. Starting at the $25 level, you will actually get a copy of the film:
- $25 – Digital download of the short and theme song. Name in the thank you section of credits.
- $50 – DVD copy of short, signed promo still, all digital downloads, and name in thank you section of credits.
- $50 – Personalized “Thank you” video from cast of your choice, autographed promo still, all digital downloads, and name in thank you section of credits.
So yeah, check it out! The Kickstarter ends Wednesday, November 20 at 2:58 p.m. EST.
