VOLDEMORT GETS A BACKSTORY
FAN-MADE FILM DETAILING VOLDEMORT’S ORIGINS OFFICIALLY RELEASED
Fan-made films are always a joy to see due to a beloved series getting looked at through a fresh set of eyes. There’s also the freedom to a play with certain story concepts based on a fan-film’s budget, such as using creative angles because the director couldn’t afford a certain lens (or in my case using a car’s headlights because my camera light blew out). The flip side is true, such as a script being loved enough by an actor that they decide to join the production (i.e. James Van Der Beek in the film Power/Rangers by Joseph Khan).
Regardless of media licensing and copyright laws, the Internet exists to hold everything we may need and that holds true for Tryangle Films’ newest project: Voldemort: Origins of the Heir.
The film was written, directed and edited by one man: Gianmaria Pezzato, who also did the visual effects for the film. The film is a little short of an hour long but it holds up to the actual series of films in looks and storytelling. It may even be better at capturing the dark themes portrayed throughout the series.
Due to the film exploring the Voldemort’s backstory, it aims for being an unofficial prequel to the series (instead of the actual series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them). The film had to end crowdfunding due to legal issues from Warner Brothers, but after agreeing to be a non-profit film Pezzato was able to post the finished product on YouTube over the weekend.
Voldemort: Origins of the Heir stars Stefano Rozzi as Tom Riddle with Voldemort being played by Davide Ellena.
The film is too long to post here so follow this link:
