Welcome! We are Broad Strokes Productions, a production company that has all kinds of ideas. We are the creators of several fan films including Harry Potter fan films Severus Snape and the Marauders and The Greater Good, along with Batman fan films Riddle of the Mask and Truth of the Mask.

We are currently producing an audio drama called The Great Wizarding War, which is a 12 part series that serves as a sequel to Severus Snape and the Marauders. We are also in development for a new Podcast, tentatively named Story Builders, where director Justin Zagri and writer Garrett Schweighauser record themselves coming up with ideas for stories, building them from scratch, shooting or recording the finished story, and presenting it to you!

Broad Strokes is always in development for new projects, including proof of concepts for feature films. If you are interested in knowing more, contact us!

Great Wizarding War

-Will this be a movie and are you planning on doing another movie?

It will not be a movie. We made an agreement with Warner Bros when we first raised money for Severus Snape and the Marauders to not raise money again, but they approved us telling more stories, so long as we acknowledged they are fan-based. We will not be making any more films that are based in the Harry Potter universe.

-Why an audio drama?

Firstly, it is far less expensive. Second, it gives us the freedom to tell a much bigger story that isn’t limited by budget constraints. We can get far more epic and imaginative.

-Will (insert character here) be in ‘The Great Wizarding War’?

We don’t want to spoil the fun on who’s showing up. Wait and see!

-I don’t think ___________ would have acted this way/done this.

The wonderful thing about reading the books is there is so much left to interpretation. This is our interpretation of how these characters behaved. For this series, there will be a long evolving arc for each character. So stay tuned to see how each character turns out!
