Title: The Legend Of Zelda

Synopsis: The story follows Link on his time sensitive puzzle solving quest to rescue the Land of Hyrule and its Princess from the evil overlord Ganon.

My research and dedication to keeping this story true to its nature is unmatched. Not only have I played every game and been one of the cult followers myself, I have ensured that this screenplay incorporates only the best elements of all the series, creating a cinematic version of the experience that captured the imagination of its initial followers and setting a new standard for playable video adaptations. I look forward to your response in order to send you my screenplay, which I know will please both fans and newcomers to the Zelda universe.

Synopsis: "Fenris" is a dark and vicious accounting of personal honor and redemption during the Pre-Viking Age world that incorporates the myth of Beowulf. The hyper realistic violence in this take on this classic tale is heightened by the introduction of a breed of apex predator far superior to any man. Vidar, a once feared and admired Norse warrior is called out of exile by his brother to investigate an abandoned outpost with an offer allowing for the return of his family to civilization. But, after living a life of laconic religious morality, Vidar is no longer the same hardened warrior of a decade previous. He is forced to reconcile between his new ethics and his suppressed brutal nature. As the legend of Beowulf alludes to Christianity's encroachment on the old world religions, "Fenris" examines man's instincts and his eternal struggle to subdue them through belief and will. This unflinching narrative reveals the difference between man and beast is not intelligence but morality.
