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!
