[livejournal.com profile] belak_krin reminded me that this LotR "fan film" is now online. It's set around the time of Aragorn's birth and basically follows

Now, fan films are more often than not quaint or vaguely amusing but generally rubbish. This certainly isn't rubbish. Considering this was basically shot in people's spare time with a tiny budget (something around 25K, apparently), this is remarkable. The acting is a bit wooden in places but the production values are fantastic. Great locations, really good costumes and excellent makeup/prosthetics (the orcs really wouldn't look out of place in Peter Jackson's films) and props. I want to rave about a specific bit of CGI that gives any BBC production a run for its money but I don't want to give it away as it's so remarkable, you have to see it for yourselves. They style and feel is reminiscent of Peter Jackson's trilogy and they've done a good job integrating that. Even the fight scenes can hold their own with any TV production.

Watch it here in all its HQ glory (embedded DailyMotion vid).
