Buffyverse Fan Film Fest. New article on Wikipedia has some nice info and links to many new & old projects, including one that has not even been mentioned at Whedonesque yet: the upcoming "Slayers" (requires Flash).
Btw the main Wiki-article also has info.links on other fan fiction like Virtual Seasons (many of which look pretty cool but I have yet to read any).
The fan films in order of their release:
1) Fluffy the English Vampire Slayer (on Wiki)
Released back in 2001.
2) Consanguinity (on Wiki)
10 episodes released. Will there be a Season 2? Who knows. I hope so though. This series almost makes me wanna learn the technique of Machinima and then make a computer-animated Buffyverse series. Apparently all you need is a PC, and a computer game (even something like "Quake I" would do)
3) Cherub (on Wiki)
Up to second episode of Season 2. IMO this is hilarious.
4) Forgotten Memories (on Wiki)
An upcoming continuation of "Buffy" post-"Chosen".
July 5th update says "hopefully filming soon.
Creator Harvey Chin said at Whedonesque back in February "I'm giving it away free via the net after I see whether or not it can have a chance to be seen at a convention". However there has been some unfair comments on his livejournal about the project (e.g. "First, these characters don't look anything like the Angel characters second Vangelis what kind of name is that. I think this tv series film or whatever it's is a disgrace and embaressment to Angel the TV series".).
In an April update to the "Vangelis" journal he said this: "Will Vangelis be released on the internet? Not sure at the moment. Vangelis was meant to be a tribute in the way that "Hardware Wars" was a tribute to the original "Star Wars", but instead, it seems to be drawing a bit of venom from "Angel" fans- which is a bit confusing.. So right now, the plan is to complete "Vangelis" and see what the response is, and send it to those of you who are on the request list."
I'm seriously hoping he changes his mind and releases it onto the internet. The fans who flamed "Vangelis" at livejournal do not represent the vast majority of fans who appreciate the extreme work that goes into making a fan film.
If any producers of any of the Whedonverse fan films are here then share some knowledge.
