Welcome to The Zelda Project

The Zelda Project is a Los Angeles, CA based group of fans who seek to bring to life the characters, settings, and overall feel of Ocarina of Time through photography and film.

A labor of love, this project combines all aspects of art from costuming & photography to CGI visual effects.  Our end goal is that we hope those of you who view our work are brought a little bit more into the world of Hyrule through our art.

Fire Temple Lava River

Link walks through the fire templeThe air was dense and smelled of sulfur as Link crossed the narrow land bridge between two slowly churning rivers of lava.

Please check back soon for our IndieGoGo Movie Campaign! We are almost there and it's gonna be really cool! Seriously, it's about a week or two away, and we've got some of the coolest people working with us!

The Zelda Project is a Los Angeles, CA based group of friends who seek to bring to life the characters, settings, and overall feel of Ocarina of Time through photography and film. Our ultimate goal is to create the characters as they would appear in reality to the best of our abilities, placing them in beautiful sceneries true to their Hyrulean counterparts, and creating elaborate photosets, as well as a film short.

The boots, gloves, and belts are all real leather. The sword and shield are made with a number of different materials including high density foam, fiberglass, and resin.

This whole Fire Temple thing has been a long time coming.  This shoot required the right level of skill and voluntary dedication by the artists who worked on it.  A lot of the editing I started myself, but since my abilities in photoshop are limited, it was hard for me to create the right kind of editing that was needed to pull off the vision I had in my head.  A number of different artists have contributed to this shoot in small ways, and managing all the assets coming together for the final piece of art was sometimes easy and sometimes really difficult!  As usual for a project like this, everything is done on a volunteer basis, and it was especially tough to find artists who had the time to dedicate to this, were willing to work on it pro-bono, and had the chops to pull off what was needed to bring this dungeon to life.

This cosplay photo was a huge combined group effort that was a labor of love by friends and fans of the Legend of Zelda series. Combining all aspects of art from photography to digital editing, we wanted to bring the Legend of Zelda to life as best we could in a final presentation. As always, this has been incredibly rewarding, and we hope that those of you who view our work are brought a little bit more into the world of Hyrule through our art.

A special thanks to everyone who has helped us get this far! Without all of your support and kindness we wouldn't have been able to make this happen. We only hope that with what we produce, a smile is put on your face!
