Severus Snape and the Marauders — A Harry Potter Fan Film
“The filmmakers who brought you “The Greater Good – Dumbledore and Grindelwald” want to bring young Snape and the Marauders to life!”
SIDE NOTE: “Bring them to life”: BECAUSE THEY’RE ALL DEAD NOW. *Runs into corner and begins to sob*
Do you remember The Greater Good? No? Then you probably just haven’t seen it! CLICK HERE. You want to watch it! It’s a 20 minute long spectacular fan film about the duel between Dumbledore and Grindelwald — The one that killed Arianna. (sp?) Anyway, now our amazing director Justin Zagri wants to tell the story of Severus Snape and the Marauders post-Hogwarts, Pre-Death. (Obviously). I’m on the social networking crew of this amazing film, so I’m here to tell you ALL about it!
FIRST OF ALL, WordPress wouldn’t let me embed a video. So click the link to watch the trailer! CLICK IT! You know you want to!
…. Have you clicked it yet?
Okay, good. Wasn’t that AMAZING???
Now, I know you’re all asking…
How do I watch the whole thing?
Well, I have the answer. If you help us fund it via Kickstarter, not only will you get amazing perks (see perks below), but you can also help to make this film the very best it can be. You won’t regret it!
Pretty awesome right? But what’s the story, you ask? What’s the film about?
“Snape, Lily, and The Marauders have graduated Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. At a local pub, James Potter and his friends Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew, reminisce about their last seven years, and contemplate their future. Snape heads to the same pub in the hopes of finding Lily and making amends after inadvertently ruining their friendship two years before. When James spots his old rival, thinking about the war they are to join and the part Snape might play, James decides to do something about him once and for all.
The story will be from Snape’s perspective, but is just as much a Marauders story as it is about Snape, and all characters will be treated objectively and fairly. It is about the reality of the wizarding world at the time and the choices they make after Hogwarts can no longer protect them.”
AND, in addition to ALL OF THAT… Check out our amazing cast! Wonderful casting, BTW, whoever did that. Especially James. Even without seeing him act beyond those few seconds it is PERFECT.
Because everybody is amazing, we’ve already hit our first goal — so the film is definitely being made. BUT, if you want this to be the very best film possible… Please, help us reach our stretch goals! 22 more days! Let’s get it to Stretch Goal #3!
