YouTube user Callegos-Y is no stranger to making animations online. In his latest video, he shows the trials and tribulations of trying to purchase a shield in the land of Hyrule. The video itself is done in Source Film Maker, a popular program in the online content creation community. Callegos-Y notes that…

January 2015 brought us the release of a new Zelda live-action series called Creatures of Hyrule, featuring a blend of CG action, quirky humor, and arguably “the most accurate portrayal of Link in all fanfilm-dom.” Series director Jared Potter of (Part One) Media is no stranger to Zelda webseries; producing the impressive short film The Skull Kid for Machinima in 2013, the filmmaker has continued to develop films that bring the Zelda world to life. We recently conducted an interview with Potter, discussing his projects, visual effects, and live-action Zelda adaptations…

A few months ago, we saw the premiere episode of Creatures of Hyrule, a series of fan films meant to bring the iconic beasts of Zelda to life. Last week, filmmaker Jared Potter and (part one) media released the series’ second entry, titled Forest Guardian. In this action-packed episode, Link is confronted with a Stalfos, resulting in a life-threatening battle with the sword-fighting skeleton…

Remember that awesome live-action Zelda fan film teaser we showed you a while back? If you liked that, we have a special treat for you! The following is an interview with the creators of that teaser, Player Piano and The Zelda Project. The interview contains some inside info, future plans, et cetera…

“In the land of Hyrule, there are many legends. However, none of them… are about these guys.” So says J. Derek Howard who is the writer and the director of an all new Zelda web series that is avidly looking for funding. 

The series, unlike most, does not focus on our hero clad in green but instead on the guards and the everyday people you don’t see much of in the series. The Comedy/Adventure is based on the Ocarina of Time to start with and each season will explore a new game and different versions of our main cast…

There are many connections between the various songs within the games of the Zelda franchise, but two in particular have a unique connection.  Although many fans are well-acquainted with the iconic Zelda’s Lullaby and the more recent Ballad of the Goddess, fewer are fully aware that the latter song uses the exact same notes as the former just played in reverse.  Admittedly, there is a good deal of added instrumentation and rhythmic/temporal variation in the Ballad of the Goddess, but the main melodies use the same notes…

If you ever wanted to see Link battle giant monsters with every weapon in his arsenal, you’ll want to check out this action-packed stop motion video by animator Johnny McHone. If you’re a diehard Zelda fan like we are, this just might be the best three minutes of your day.

This isn’t the only work done by McHone, an animator from Seattle, Washington. His website is filled with other stop motion animation work, many of them in the form of Vines. He also has some other videos in his YouTube channel, but this looks like his only Zelda project. Let’s hope it’s not his last…

The Zelda Project, a group based in Los Angeles dedicated to bring the world of Ocarina of Time to life via film, and Player Piano, an ensemble that creates videos and uses a combination of musical compositions and costumes to pay tribute to great TV series, games, and movies, has teamed up to create one of the most impressive fan project teasers I have ever seen.

This two-minute teaser epic gives you a tantalizing taste of the sheer awesomeness that will emerge from this collaboration…

In 2013, filmmaker Jared Potter released an impressive live action short film titled The Skull Kid. Last week, Potter returned with (part one) media to release the first episode in a new live action Zelda webseries called Creatures of Hyrule. Each episode in the webseries will focus on a specific creature from the Zelda universe. Episode one, titled Glowing Eyes, features the mischievous ghost Poe as it playfully obstructs Link‘s path to a chest…

We all know that a full featured fan film is something Nintendo isn’t too keen on allowing to exist, but fan shorts have always been encouraged and the one we bring you today is must see material. While there have been plenty of great fan shorts over the years, there have also been a lot of really bad ones, but it seems 2014 is starting off right. This amazing awesome short, titled “The Dark Mask,” has some great effects and acting for such an amateur film. If you recall, we ended 2013 with another great fan film, “The Skull Kid.” While different in style, they are both equally fantastic. What are you waiting for? Head inside now!
