The OMEn Chronicles: A Harry Potter Fan Film

Ever since the release of the Lord of the Rings fan films (Hunt for Gollum and Born of Hope), I’ve wondered why a Harry Potter fan film doesn’t exist (the fan musicals don’t count!) and wished that someone would create one! Well, now someone has. It’s called “The OMEn Chronicles”, and it is not a…

Fan Film: Born of Hope

In addition to The Hunt for Gollum, yet another Lord of the Rings inspired fan-made indie film exists. This one is called Born of Hope.
