Born of Hope (the film, not the trailers),,,

Words fail me.

This is just so very professional--it is not a "fan film"..

The acting was absolutely top notch, as were the sets, and the costumes and the music. But all that would have failed if the story/dialogue hadn't worked. But it did --brilliantly.

Kate--it was a long time coming. But your production is absolutely top notch. Thank you so much for this gift!

This film did not disappoint. Everything about it was top notch.

I viewed it at work and intend to watch it again later this evening.

Great work Kate and crew!

It was *awesome*

I wrote an overly-long review in my LJ. All in all, I was very pleased with few quibbles, especially considering that this was all a labor of love.

It's really a pity that the FanArt boards does not get as much traffic as Main, because I would love to hear everyone else's thoughts and not too many people come here. Anyways, that film gets a huge seal of approval from me. Well done to the whole team.

I give it 8 out of 10 stars.

The dialogue was just a tad repetitive about hope (which of course leads into Aragorn's Elven name). Other than that, I found it entertaining and entirely plausible. I really felt like I was there, hangin' with the remnants of Arnor - all glory gone, men and women trying to scrape out a living, with the always-coming-back-being-a-threat Sauron messing up the works as he had done so often in the past. It's also a reminder of what could have easily happened to Aragorn had things not worked out as they did. The Dunedain, whilst tough and long-lived, are after all mortal and fallible.

I liked the guy they picked for Arathorn. He had the charisma while at the same time looking like a normal guy and not some Hollywood genetic product. The whole cast felt real. My personal preference - I would have switched the actresses of Gilraen and Elgarain, but that's just a personal thing about appearance (I prefer darker-haired women) - both did a great job with their roles.

I like that they kept things cloudy - 'cause I had a problem with orcs being about during the day. It would have been entirely too dreary to have all the orc action at night though.

Um, yeah that's all that comes to mind at the moment. It's my bed time and my brain is insisting that shutting down is a good thing. Smile

Thanks for inviting me to the conversation Patty.

My little review...

This is definitely the highest quality fan film I've ever seen and my wife agreed. It was even better than the Hunt for Gollum in production. Some of the special effects were close to par with big budget feature films and blended well without distracting from the scene. Most of the acting was excellent. I'm being very honest in saying that. However, Christopher Dane was head and shoulders the star of the film. This guy looked the part and managed to be the part. Honestly, I enjoyed his performance a lot and he deserves recognition. Perhaps Del Toro could give him the role of Bard! LOL. Seriously, I think he should be in The Hobbit film.

It seems petty for me to pick at anything about such an impressive production, although my one niggle is that the plot felt more of a chronicle of events than a gripping drama. The suspense and hooks (those questions that a story causes the audience to ask and keep interested throughout) were spread thin. It might have benefited from an extra layer, particularly in the sub plot of Elgarain and her infatuation / love for Arathorn. More could have been done with that and next to Arathorn she is easily the next most interesting character, followed by Dirhaborn. Other than that, I didn't find the rest of the cast of characters particularly memorable or interesting. Still, as a fan, I enjoyed the film even if it felt more like a reality / slice of life than a compellingly structured drama.

The romance aspect was well handled and had such a dominant part in the first half of the story. The scenes with Arathorn and Gilraen were believable and sweet. If only some of the story could have taken place in Imladris rather than the brief end scene. Obviously budget limitations prevented this.

Overall, this is actually an amazing piece of work by all involved. I thought The Hunt for Gollum was the best fan film I'd seen, but this one pushed the bar even higher. I hope that it leads to good things for all those involved and I hope plenty of people discover this gem.

I am embarking on a journey to become an extra in The Hobbit films. My journey shall be chronicled here at TheOneRing.net in these forums. You'll hear the story of my successes and failures as I try to get a walk on or minor role. Contact rod.hannah@gmail.com

I just watched it yesterday, and I can hardly keep myself from watching it again!!! I can't believe how good it is! I agree with all the others who posted, it's incredibly professional, the scripting and story work really well, and you just feel like you're there. I would even go so far as to say that I felt this movie kept much more closely with the spirit of Tolkien than the PJ LotR movies (shoot me if you like!). Arathorn was in fact a hero, not an odd mixture of conflict. Loyalty and honor were obvious themes, as they should be! In short, the movie was fantastic!

That film is amazing. There were a few nit-picky things, [matalan inspired sheepskin gilets anyone?] but you know what, I don't care, they all did an amazing job and did better imo than many multi-million £/$ films.

I totally agree that Arathorn was well cast - even down to the occasional Kermit voice, and I would be chuffed for him if he was in The Hobbit.

I just saw the film,

and i was amazed with the seriousness and raw energy that i felt. I also felt, a true devotion to the untold story (in film) of that tenuous struggle of a dark time. We have a wonderful window now of a piece of history in the visual.

I thought the actors and actresses were wholeheartedly compelled to bring their character to life and they were wonderfully well casted as well. They felt right.The music was quite wonderful. And the costumes of all, were every bit of believable.

On a lighter note, i enjoyed the woodland set. The beauty of the beeches and the sounds of the forest, even with loons was delightful.

''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

May the grace of Manwë let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of Manwë Súlimo

That was absolutely fantastic! I can't believe how engrossed I got and how emotional I felt when Arathorn died - I cried Evil. The acting was brilliant, the settings were beautiful. The music worked well alongside the storyline and the costumes looked authentic. I loved the jewellery. I'm going to watch it again as I'm sure I will pick up things missed the first time round just like Lord of the Rings Smile. I loved this film, it was well worth the wait. Thankyou.

Bravo! Well done!! [a few minor spoilers]

I love this film! I completely agree with those who have said Arathorn (Christopher Dane) would make a good Bard. He was wonderful! He bears enough of a resemblance to Viggo's Aragorn that they really could be related.

Great attention was paid to how Shore uses his music, because I found so much of this film's music followed his lead. Splendid!!

The Orcs were awesome! My very first geeky twinge of them was how they came out from the trees onto the road from here, and there, one at a time... not in a massive hoard like we're used to. And the choreography of the fight scenes were flawless. The weaponry… the thatched cottages… the costuming… I mean, most of the wigs were so natural! I also very much appreciated that when the village was attacked, there wasn't a lot of screaming by the women/villagers. It was like they all knew what to do and just did it. The men formed a line of defense, the women bolted themselves in with the children… just what descendants of the king and those living on the edge of constant danger would do. They lived as free and happy as they could, but knew it could be gone in an instant.

And I love the story within the story. I got goosebumps when Halbarad was playing with infant Aragorn and cried, "I claim this field in the name of the King!" So many details like that were woven throughout the story. I was just sitting there shaking my head. Wonderful!

I do have to say that my two favourite characters were Christopher Dane's Arathorn and Kate Madison's Elgarain. Their effortless portrayals of these memorable characters always gave the story believability. She knew Arathorn so well and he valued her very good counsel. I knew her story would be what it was, but I still hoped her heart could rest with Dirhaborn. *sigh* I'm glad he said the words in time…

And The Brothers! WOW!! What wonderful choices! They were everything I had ever imagined them to be. I'm SO happy they were in the story!

The screenplay was thick with references both of the hints of the story we've been shown before and developed with very logical assumptions of the series of events.

The story was closed with Gilraen's prophetic words about their son. I was teary by then. So well done… brilliant!
*applause* Thank you!

Watched it tonight [spoilers]

I was impressed at how professionally it was done, considering it was the work of volunteers on a very modest budget.

Good stuff:
- The actor who played Arathorn did a great job. He filled the role with life and humor. (I guess they picked the guy who looked and acted most like Viggo Mortensen!)
- The music sounded great and wasn't too "filmic"
- Costuming was simple (appropriately, given the rustic lifestyle of the Dunedain) but effective.
- Excellent swords and jewelry. The circlets, rings, etc. were very well-designed.
- The orcs looked fantastic!
- Infant Aragorn is an actual infant. Toddler Aragorn was adorable. So was little Maia.
- Lovely cinematography! The opening sequence and snow scenes were especially beautiful.
- The movie did a thorough job of filling in the back story about this relationship
- The pencil drawings in the closing credits were a nice homage to the closing credits of the ROTK movie.
- Great casting overall.
- Not to mention that actual twins play Elladan and Elrohir (the Wonder Twins)
- Sindarin dialog nicely integrated with subtitles

Not so good stuff:
- I didn't find Gilraen particularly compelling and would have liked to see more of her conflict with her parents over marrying Arathorn. (Elgarain was much more interesting given her conflicted feelings about Arathorn and Gilraen.) She does have some lovely courtship scenes with Arathorn which redeem her character.
- Some of the plot seems a bit perfunctory, but then again, they were kind of locked into Tolkien's story
- [spoiler] Elgarain's death wasn't a surprise
- [spoiler] Neither was Dirhabon's
- [spoiler] No subtitles for Gilraen's final Sindarin dialog (the linnod from LOTR)

Pilot error:
- For some reason, I got the impression that the Orcs were looking for the One Ring, not the Ring of Barahir. Figured out my mistake a few minutes later.

Took Time Tonight

I enjoyed it. For a fan film it is top notch. Did I get emotional, nope. Some spoilers to follow.

I like Idril I was quit able to predict who died and when.
Death scenes were sometimes lacking (due to budget I'm sure).
Gilraen wasn't what I expected but one thing that I like is she is cute enough but not a raving Holywood babe. Nice to see some natural beauty there.
The love triangle was not so much fun for me. Elgarain loves Arathorn, and Arathorn loves Gilraen you just can't win . . if your old enough to remember that song, it plays on a ton of cleaning commercials nows.
Arathorn must have had some good Orc scent disguise for them to take so long in smelling him out in the cave . . .

Christopher Dane did a marvelous job in his role as Arathorn.
Costumes and other items were outstanding (location and CGI was well done).
Orcs were a credit to detail.
Weapons were nice. I liked how the sons of Elrond used their bows more realistically here.
Dialogs were pretty well done and well written.
Nice seeing the director being in the film and the challenges that must have provided were overcome.
Length. An hour was just right to tell this story and in the time they took, they developed and delivered.
Movie gets you back into the Appendixes looking up stuff which is always a good thing.

I enjoyed it, would recommend it, and will watch it again with the two tweens.

It really isn't mentioned, but why not? So... it'd be so cool if Christopher Dane could be Bard and Kate Madison could be his Wife/Equal/Counterpart. It would be a great echo of the Aragorn/Arwen storyline.

I also wanted to add to my previous post that the closing credits are amazing!! I love how they followed the credits from RotK. Gorgeous!

I got the same impression, but in the end I figured this was done on purpose. I was like, "Wait a minute, the Ring was lost. What are they going to do with this?" When I finally realized what was going on, I was impressed. It is like a well-written detective story getting you to think one way, and then pulling the rug out from under you!

Where in the world did they find such good looking twin men? I presume on their budget they didn't do something like have the same actor play both parts and copy one of the performances into the film.

Kate Madison is as good an actress as she is a filmmaker. I hope to see more of her in both guises.

So I've seen it 4 times already...

I thought it was very professional and well executed. There was attention to detail in the settings, the costumes, and the dialogue. I greatly appreciated that they had it get darker when the orcs would come. Chistopher Dane was an excellent choice for Arathorn, he seemed to fit the role quite well. Personally, I would have switched the actors for Gilraen and Elgarain, but either way I thought they did an amazing job. Kate was my favorite, I loved her character, her acting, her costume, she did and amazing job! The last half of the story was my favorite, don't get me wrong I liked all of it, I just got more feeling from the last half. Unfortunately that was half where everyone dies. But it was well done and the entire film was well worth the wait. One of the best fan films I have seen so far!

Dailymotion version now fixed...

and is available here: http://www.dailymotion.com/...d-version_shortfilms

Due to the marvels of modern technology, I was able to watch it on my big screen in the basement. By big screen I mean my 8'x10' pull-down :) This film is meant for theaters, not just streamed on a desktop. It is even more stunning when experienced at that size, and connected to a semi-theater quality stereo system. Just simply outstanding!
