Get ready to go back to Middle-Earth, because this looks good…
Born of Hope is a feature length prequel to the Lord of The Rings trilogy created by Kate Madison, an aspiring director, actress, and obvious fan of LOTR. Coming in at a price tag of $39,310, Kate spent her entire life savings on this project and has been greatly rewarded.
With the amazing, and I imagine mostly free, help of hundreds of actors, actresses, and obviously talented make up and digital crews, this film has managed to pique the interest of some of the big shots at WETA Workshop (the people who made the Hollywood films).
It’s available online for free, and any person who considers themselves a fan of the fantasy genre in general should take a look at this.
