Oh yeah. I'm actually doing it this time. Razz

I've been making videos for a long time, and I've always wanted to make Zelda in some fashion. Two years ago, I tried to do a fan-film of A Link to the Past, but the whole project fell through, so I spent some times bringing up my production value and finding the most efficient way to produce a film based off the classic series. Of course, the biggest production save would be to use a modern environment, which means I can practically do this as a low-to-no-budget film (to coin a phrase).

Using a modern Hyrule also allowed for a huge creative opportunity that sets this apart from other Zelda fan-films. Rather than having a plot with made-up villains and repeating the Legend of the Goddesses and the Triforce at the beginning, I took the most common elements from the series and put them in a modern world. For example, if you can see in the preview video posted at the top, Lon Lon Ranch is now a car dealership, still run by Talon with help from his daughter, Malon. I wrote the script with reality and fantasy in mind. Don't worry. Link does get the Master Sword and the sword has not changed at all.

In the great city of Hyrule, one of the prominent leaders of the town, Deku, senses that the legend of the Triforce is returning and evil is upon the city. Link, a boy from the forest, is summoned to fulfill his destiny as the soon-to-be Hero of Fate.

Principal Photography started mid-December 2013 and it should end around mid-January 2014. I have no idea how long editing will take. Hopefully, three to four months. Maybe more. I came up with the idea of a modern Zelda short film in April and I started writing in September. So most of the year, I've had Zelda 2014 in mind. When I was writing, I didn't know when I would be doing this. Once I released my last short film, Canterbury Without, I felt comfortable taking on such a tremendous task.

I hope you enjoyed the preview so far! If you want to see updates as soon as they arrive, Like our page on Facebook or Subscribe to my YouTube channel! Thanks again!

Looks promising, reminds me of There Will Be Brawl in terms of the cinematography. Keep it up!

Yupp. The plot is based mostly off the original Legend of Zelda, but it takes some elements from Ocarina of Time.

Hehe. Almost. Razz Link will get the Master Sword. I thought that was too important to not have.
