Filmed on digital video, a Sony 3CCD
cam. If you are an aspiring film maker, I stand behind
Sony products. Many will steer you towards Canon, don't go
there. They have horrid depth of field and all three of
our Canons have failed within a year. Not worth the money!
The bar scene was filmed at Cafe
Netherworld on 13th and Pennsylvania in Denver Colorado.
The castle is Bishop's Castle in Beulah
Colorado, see more info here http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/2047
the guard killed by Link is the castle builder, Jim
Bishop, who built the entire structure by hand.
Gannons shirt is a World Gym shirt, we
spent all out money on Link's costume, so we wanted a
cheap way to make Gannon come off as kind of a jockish
The castle was 3.5 hours away, the day of filming we left
in a 2 door hatchback and barely had room to move with all
the gear. Aubrey, Dragan and myself are all over 6 feet
tall, Audra was the only person under 6 feet, we had 2
bags of makeup, 3 bags of costume, a TV set, VCR, 300 feet
of extension cord, a boom mic, camera, a coffe table,
sheild, sword and extra lighting. There was no room to
move or see out most of the windows.
All items, including a couch had to be
carried up a tiny staircase to the top floor of the castle
in the dead of winter with no heat.
Yes, the green cannon arm in the beginning is supposed to
be Samus Aran. JUSTIN BAILEY FTW motherfuckers!
The cave scene was filmed at the local museum.
All the film clips were reversed after
filming to show Link holding the sword in his left hand as
Link is a lefty.
The ladder scene was shot in 1 take.
Links costume was hand made. My parents owned a drapery
shop, so I grew up, reluctantly, knowing how to sew.
The Octaroc was made out of an inflated
rubber ball sold as a novelty item.
