New fan film: “The Gathering Storm”
One of the most popular eras for fans to speculate about is the Marauders’ era, with many exploring how the story of Harry Potter came to be. Now, a group of students from Emerson College in Boston, MA are making a fan film based on the story of Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs entitled The Gathering Storm.
“The year is 1977, and Lord Voldemort’s forces are growing stronger. With the the end of the Marauders’ time at Hogwarts drawing closer, everyone is forced to choose a side. Based on the stories and events of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, The Gathering Storm is a not-for-profit fan project, made by a group of film students purely for entertainment and educational purposes.
“Key casting is currently ongoing! We [are] accepting video applications from anyone who is interested in submitting at firstname.lastname@example.org from now until March 5! From there we’ll be doing in-person callbacks, as well as video-callbacks for those who can’t make it in. We’ll be casting the rest of the characters after the first wave has been finished. This film is an independent project that will be shooting in late May of 2014.”
