While at Ascendio 2012, I was privileged to see Part 1 of a new fan made video by Adam VillaSenor entitled Sirius Black and the Secret Keeper.
"'Sirius Black and the Secret Keeper' is an expansion of JK Rowling's backstory in the Harry Potter Book Series & Universe set during the first wizarding war," stated director and writer Adam. "Our aim is to bring an amazing backstory to life focusing on Sirius Black, which has always been my favorite character in JK Rowling's Harry Potter Series. I've read the books and seen the movies like 50 times each. A Harry Potter prequel fan-made series has never been done before. My own journey in bringing the story to life has been pretty insane, from people telling me I am nuts to smacking my head and getting amnesia for 4 months during post production, but this is my tribute to Harry Potter, JK Rowling, and the fans. I hope the fans enjoy, share, and back my own original project. I plan on releasing more episodes and creating a whole story arc."
The quality of the video and the score is exceptional and we look forward to further updates as this projects move forward.

It is time for me to tell you what I should have told you five years ago, Harry. Please sit down. I am going to tell you everything.
