Joel here. This website’s a little dusty, but thought for those of you that might still check out the site for updates, you’d be happy to know that Ruins and Reckoning is completed and online for your viewing pleasure! Hope you all enjoy!
We’ve got some news on future projects as well as a few updates to the site to help navigate to the buddy-sites for projects The Hero of Time’s creators are working on! The video is long overdue—we know. It was hard to contrive a video update without many things going on with The Hero of Time. But chin up cause its here! It features footage from the LA screening from last year, some behind the scenes funnies, as well as some really weighty banter of us on the couch!
Regarding the website’s updates— you’ll notice a new tab in the top left that says “new projects”. If you click on that tab, options for the buddy-sites will pop up. The buddy-sites will be hosting all the updates and info on their projects. So, be sure to check them out and subscribe, check back, bookmark, make a mental note—whatever you need to do to keep informed! Right now we are only featuring 2 projects, but maybe we’ll have more in the near future.
Thanks again for all your support! We really hope all you Zelda zealots will continue to follow us along with other film and creative projects!
Very soon we are going to add a couple distinct links to buddy-sites (in addition to the one below) of the other projects the creators of HoT are working on. Also, as promised, we will be posting a wonderfully uninformative HoT video update that will include footage from the LA screening as well as other fun video (see above spoiler-stills^^)!! So there’s that. At this time David Blane would like to take the mic and share about some of his upcoming projects!
“This is David Blane aka Link. I am currently working on a new project which I am excited for you to be a part of and want to tell you more about! You can find out more subscribe to our youtube channel where I will be making the more important announcements, or you can also add me on twitter, and check out my blog at davidblanestudios.com. DBStudios is a temporary way for me to relay information and help keep everyone in the loop for my next project until a more permanent site can be created. Please visit my website to find our more!
always — with The Hero of Time in mind, David”
Hope you guys find time to check out these buddy-sites! They will be hosting the official updates on new projects. Looking at almost 9 million website hits this year, we’re surprised that you guys are still checking in to see whats new, so we want to appreciate that by trying to get more updates and content up. So check back soon for the links to the new projects and the HoT video update! Thanks!!!!
Thanks again and always for all your encouragement and support of The Hero of Time! We can’t imagine ever having another fan-base as cool and fun as you all! We were really excited to be able to meet so many of you and we were so delighted to receive so many of your emails, reviews and messages! We’re certain that most of the enthusiasm we’ve noticed probably comes from your and our mutual zeal for Zelda and we hope since we’ve established such a super camaraderie already that you will gladly venture with us into our next projects! : )
We are currently working on a new project and hope that you all will be just as enthusiastic about this one! We aren’t naive enough to set a release date just yet, but status updates are on the way! In the meantime if any of you filmmakers and graphic designers out there are interested in post-production, we could use your help! We are specifically looking for a 3D model/animator, and someone with plenty of experience in After Effects. If you’re interested in helping out on our next epic adventure, email us HERE!
We hope to be posting a video of our LA screening footage soon. We held off on it for so long because we didn’t have any updates to go along with it. Maybe our update will be that there are no updates with The Hero of Time whatsoever! : )
Check back soon for the LA screening video!
Thanks again, everybody!
Hey, everyone. We just wanted to let you know that Dec. 31 was the last day that The Hero of Time was available for viewing. We came to an agreement with Nintendo earlier this month to stop distributing the film. In the spirit of the holiday season they were good enough to let us keep the movie up for you to watch and enjoy through the end of 2009, but not past 2009. We understand Nintendo’s right to protect its characters and trademarks and understand how in order to keep their property unspoiled by fan’s interpretation of the franchise, Nintendo needs to protect itself — even from fan-works with good intentions.
This has been quite an adventure for us and we have a real sense of peace bringing the project to a close. Between the screenings and the online release many of you were able to see the film and we hope to not have only inspired those of you that live, breathe and dream Zelda but we also hope to have inspired all of you aspiring filmmakers out there! Thank you again for all your patience with the project and we hope you had as much fun watching our movie as we did making it. Thanks for all your wonderful messages of encouragement and support! I’m sure our next project will be right around the corner! No, it’s not Majora’s Mask : )

Hey everyone! Great seeing all you guys from out west at the screening! The theatre told us that you all were one of the better crowds that they’ve had and it was a blast to host the event! Zelda fans rule! Pictures and video of the screening coming soon!
As we announced at the screening, we will be releasing the film through our official partnership with dailymotion.com on Monday December 14th! We are really excited about this! The film will be in High Quality, and in one piece!
Also, for those of you that can’t huddle around a computer with all your friends to watch the film, on December 21st we will be releasing a DVD file to download with instructions on a three step process to make your own DVD of the film! Free movie for everyone!!!
Even though the film is being released online, the screenings arent necessarily over. They’re getting pretty expensive for us to host, so if you would like to put together an event, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d love to see how we could help. Thanks again for your support!
