Hey! Listen! I made a ZELDA movie!

As a writer, video editor, and lifelong Nintendo fan, I've fantasized about what a LEGEND OF ZELDA movie would look like for years. Well...I made those dreams a reality recently, with a slew of video mashups, and a 40-page treatment that outlines a feature-length dark fantasy film called A LINK TO THE LOST AGE

The pitch? Three words: Old Man Link.

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA as an '80s Dark Fantasy Film

After watching a ton of 1980s sword and sorcery movies for my podcast (more on that below), I realized that there is no better genre to represent the brooding atmosphere and uninhibited imagination of the ZELDA games than the '80s Dark Fantasy movement.

So I took some of my favorites and mashed them together into the ZELDA movie (trailer) of my dreams!

Eye of the Duck is a film podcast that explores essential movie scenes -- what David Lynch calls "Eye of the Duck" scenes. Hosted by myself and Adam Volerich, we are currently finishing off our series on '80s Dark Fantasy movies, Legends of the Eye of the Duck!
