Mission Statement

Misfits, or epic action heroes and villains? Vampires and slayers living in NYC should look like NYC. Our cast and crew represent people of many different backgrounds, just like our home. We have women in leadership and a team at parity. The Hunted: NYCSS believes in inclusivity on and off camera.

The Story

The Hunted is one of the longest running series on the web, originally created by Bob Chapin as a class project for his stage combat students. 

 

 

It now has episodes and series branchoffs submitted from all over the world!

 

 

 

The Hunted: NYCSS began with members of the real life NYCSS (New York Combat for Stage and Screen) wanting to use their stage combat skills to be action heroes in their own badass series. 

 

 

Member Kaitlyn Farley then brought in Fight the Good Fight Productions, who's mission is to make space for women in theatre and film, to make it even more EPIC.

Everyone agreed that action heroes could look different than the ones we grew up watching. We wanted REAL people as our heroes and villains. If you can sling a sword, you can slay a vampire.

Right? :)

 

 

And the concept was birthed. Four stage combat students and their teachers, an unlikely crew, team up to take on the new vamps in New York.

Facing new foes, betrayal, and the general angst of being in your twenties and finding out the safety of the entire city lies in your hands... can our heroes find the secret to slaying these vampires in time?

 

 

Well...we need a little help in order for you find out! We've been hard at work on post production this year. Amidst all the challenges 2020 has presented, we still believed in our series and knew we needed to make it happen. 

We've done a lot without any money... we'll be honest. :)

We've been putting in our time and getting creative in lots of different departments.  And now in order to finish this show and release it into the ether, we need a few funds.

We can slay more vampires with more people on our team. 

Join us and slay. And be part of an epic story.
