Harry Potter: the ambitious Franco-British fan film about Voldemort is finally visible

The one-whose-name-must-not-be-pronounced is embodied by Maxence Danet-Fauvel (Skam).

After three years of production, that’s it, The House of Gaunt: Lord Voldemort Origins is finally visible on the web. This 33-minute fan film, co-directed by Thomas Rokita and Joris Faucon Grimaud, was created thanks to the work of 80 volunteers, all fans of Harry potter and more motivated than the others to tell the youth of the famous villain of the saga: Voldemort. He is played by a comedian well known to fans of Skam, Maxence Danet-Fauvel (who plays Eliott Demaury in the series).

“After the previews and the meeting with the public, we are very happy that the film is accessible to as many people as possible”, explains its creator to Allocine, who interviewed it just before it was uploaded to Vimeo. Hoping “to put a first step in the cinema” thanks to this fan film, he wants above all to convince thes “Potterheards” with this new story, directly inspired by the world of JK Rowling, on which he has been working since March 2017. The House of Gaunt: Lord Voldemort Origins was filmed thanks to three crowdfunding campaigns, which enabled the team to raise 60,000 euros, revealed The Daily Prophet at the beginning of the year. His shots spanned between 2017 and 2020.
