Potter fans! A new fan film takes an interesting approach and explores the darker side of the Wizarding World. Sanctum takes place in a time before Lord Voldemort and is currently being funded on kickstarter, directed by Los Angeles based Independent filmmaker Alex Orea.
Check out the ominous teaser trailer for Sanctum below:
The official synopsis of the film:
In a time before Lord Voldemort, Lucius, an apprentice to the powerful queen of darkness, Zabravia, is ordered to capture and execute his brother Elias in a pitiful attempt to redeem himself for living in his brother’s shadow all his life and become king of Dominia. Meaningless as to where he stands between light and darkness, Lucius is faced with the challenge and must choose who his loyalty lies with.
Nicholas McLeod - Lucius
A failure all his life, Lucius was never able to live up to the expectations of his father. He was always living in the shadow of his younger brother Elias, constantly struggling, meaningless as to where he stands between light and darkness.
Tory Taranova - Zabravia
Zabravia is a manipulative, sinister witch, drunk with power; but underneath she has a deep inner struggle with her past stemming from a broken heart caused by Lucius's father. She has become detached and cruel, tormenting others only to hide the bloody wounds within.
I so much enjoyed playing Zabravia, queen of darkness! A personal big fan of the harry potter series and the world of fantasy. check out more screenshots from the film on my facebook! facebook.com/torytaranovaofficial
Jeremy Gladen - Elias
Elias is sharp, bold and determined. Even connected by blood, Lucius was indifferent, causing Elias to resent himself. After the death of his parents, Elias swore to put an end to the darkness that has consumed his brother and bring peace to his blood that once lived.
