Children raised on Nintendo, rejoice! The videography group Devin Super Tramp has produced an amazing fan film titled Zelda-The Blood Moon from the Legend of Zelda franchise. I am biased in my opinion on this, since it was written and produced by my nephew, but even if that were not the case, it’s still amazing work. So what’s it about?
“We’ve always been intrigued by what Link would look like/become as an old man. What would happen if he was to lose Zelda in battle?Devin Super Tramp, from their YouTube channel
Cool concept, right? Fans on YouTube agree that this film is the standard that any Zelda film should go by. Here’s what other fans had to say:
“Your fight scenes are BEAUTIFULLY choreographed and executed. They looked and felt amazingly perfectly. Kudos to your fight lead and to your fighters. They have great skill!!!! This was just…a wonderful surprise find in my recommended feed.”YouTube Commenter
“This is actually the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I was in tears the whole time, could not look away.”YouTube Commenter
“This is SO AMAZING!!! You captured everything Legend of Zelda is but with real people. The settings are perfect. I cannot believe this is fan made- You guys did an amazing job!”YouTube Commenter
So what’s all the fuss about? Made by fans for fans, the Tri-Force is strong with this one. Check it out below:
Fans of the Legend of Zelda franchise will appreciate that Link remains the silent hero, however, the one who steals the show is the Witch. That laugh and the curse she drops is pretty wicked (pun intended). This gem was written and directed by Team Super Tramp member Zane O’Gwin and photographed by Devin Graham.

If the film itself wasn’t enough for you Zelda fans, they also did a featurette of the making of the film, from location to cast, and filming to fight sequences, see it all right here:
As I’ve said in other reviews, when someone makes something like this from a fan perspective, it’s instantly better simply because they love it. It’s not a big budget studio with an expected return-on-investment. It’s a story from the heart, and there is no better place for it to come from.
What do you think?
Was that awesome or what? Being a fan fiction writer myself, I appreciate projects like this more than most. When you love a project as a fan, it always bleeds through the work. Zelda fans have got to be digging this one. To check out other videos from Devin Super Tramp, click their website here: DevinSuperTramp.com, and their YouTube channel here.
