Inspired by fantasy films like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, “Wizard Hunters: The Series” is a fantasy web series about Crystal, a young girl discovering that she plays a vital role in an extraordinary world she never knew existed. Set in our contemporary time, wizards, sorceresses, and vampires battle for control in a war that has been waging for centuries. “Good” and “Evil” find new definition and shades of ambiguity. As the series unfolds, several journeys of personal identity and love are discovered, lost, and avenged. It is an epic story told through high-action and special effects. “Wizard Hunters” is an intriguing ride for the whole family!
The Wizard Hunters series is created by the husband and wife team, Uphill Pictures, who, to make a living, create commercial videos. Due to their passion for narrative filmmaking, they raised a small budget to begin the Wizard Hunters series. The first five episodes will be released in the fall of 2012. We want to share our incredibly fun and challenging experience we have had with this venture. We will be posting behind the scenes footage, blogging about the Wizard Hunters story, filming, and special effects, and letting you all get to know our amazing cast and crew. We are excited to build a community with those that share our enthusiasm for indie filmmaking and the fantasy film genre.
