A remarkably impressive preview of a live-action Final Fantasy VII film has emerged from a pair of Italian film-makers, Gionata Medeot and Mattia Ferraro.
Jason Schreier of Kotaku praised the short video and questioned Medeot about the project.
Medeot told me he hopes to send this teaser to producers and raise funds to turn it into an actual film.
“Aren’t you worried about Square Enix’s lawyers asking you to stop?” I asked him in an e-mail. Square shut down a fanmade Chrono Trigger project back in 2010.
“I know,” he said, “but my lady Tifa knows Hironobu Sakaguchi and when we finish the teaser we’ll send it to him and we hope to be blessed; if not we’ll put it on YouTube equally and fingers crossed.”
He then added, “I hope your movie about Aeris doesn’t wind up like Aeris”. The project has already tried to raise funds through Indiegogo, but managed to secure only $80 of its $1,500 target.
