I received an email today from Elemental Films announcing a Lord of the Rings film they’ve begun work on… here’s the skinny:
In case you haven’t heard of us, we are a small LA based production
company working on a short film based on the characters of young Aragorn and
Arwen. Just to let you know, we’re beginning the initial stages of
preproduction on “Elessar,” the temporary title of the short to be shot on
Digital Video. Right now we’re revising the final drafts of the script and
arranging necessary copyright and licensing fees; production will most likely
begin somewhere from the end of December to the beginning of January.
An official site for the project will be up and running as soon as
possible, where production stills, storyboards, and quicktime clips will
become available when ready. Thought you might be interested; much luck to
you on your site.
I just spoke with Elemental Films and found that they’re still wrestling with Houghton-Mifflin and Tolkien Enterprises as they’re attempting to secure permission from them to produce this film… If you have any questions for Elemental Films, email them at email@example.com.
