Spirit of the Hero (The Legend of Zelda)

19,539 views 7 months ago
Spirit of the Hero was created without a crew, just $1,000, two sheets of blue screen, and my friend Tom Strodtbeck.

In the short film, Link, a young boy destined for good, is tasked with defending the kingdom of Hyrule against any threat. A malevolent stranger from another realm, known only as The Void Keeper, has mysteriously appeared with a simple goal: destroy Hyrule, banish hope, and consume anyone who stands in defiance.

The short film draws visual and narrative inspiration from all Zelda titles and lore. While Link takes a large portion of visual cues directly from The Twilight Princess, The Void Keeper is a uniquely imagined, newly invented villain.

I have dreamed about bringing the Zelda franchise to life since playing the games as a child. The characters, places, and stories that have weaved themselves together over time have created a legacy that is nothing short of a masterpiece. I can only hope that this short film is a small testament to a series that has entertained and inspired an entire generation of adventurers.
