Legend of Zelda and Red Dead Redemption Fan Films… and Call of Duty Dog.

Call of Duty DogAnother day, another great fan-created video game film — or, for today at least, a fan film, a trailer for a fan film and an animated short.

First up is the four-or-so minute long Legend of Zelda short ‘Link’s Shadow’. Created by Corridor Digital (responsible for other works such as this amazing Blood Dragon short) the short video shows Link attempting to stop Dark Link from reaching a village and murdering all of its inhabitants. It’s short, charming and the creators certainly have heaps of talent, but it’s not the best Legend of Zelda fan film out there, nor is it Corridor Digital’s personal best.

Next is the trailer for ‘Red Dead Redemption: The Hanging of Bonnie MacFarlane’, an upcoming fan film from SilkDogFilms that has been in production for well over a year now and should finally see release at some point this month. Featuring a more mature-looking John Marston, if the trailer’s anything to go by then the film will have nailed the old Western movie feel, with its settings, costumes and even the way it’s shot seemingly spot-on. In fact, it generally looks like it’ll be pretty decent, so keep your eyes out on the creator’s channel.

And last but not least is ‘Call of Duty Dog!!!’, a short and humourous animated short uploaded to Machinima Happy Hour (Machinima’s animated video subsidiary) by the guys behind the Two Best Friends Play! series. It follows the adventures of the infamous dog character revealed for the upcoming game Call of Duty: Ghosts during the Xbox One’s reveal conference. Plus it makes jabs at Microsoft, the Xbox One and Call of Duty as a whole I guess so yeah, there’s that too.
