Crew in the background during the battle of the last alliance

Crew in the background during the battle of the last alliance Can't Post

This might be old news, but a google search did not yield any results, so I thought I'd share this little find.

I was, for fun and out of enthusiasm, editing a little teaser for the new tv-show based on the second age, using footage from the FotR prologue, and I was going through a shot of elrond fighting frame by frame, and suddenly saw a member of the crew dressed in a blue sweater and with a cap on sitting in the background of the shot. He's only there for a few frames. Does anyone know if this has been spotted before?


Half a league, half a league, half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death, rode the six hundred.
'Forward, the Light Brigade! Charge for the guns' he said:
Into the valley of Death rode the six hundred.

Theirs not to make reply, theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death rode the six hundred.

Good eye! [In reply to] Can't Post

First time I've seen it, so it's new to someone regardless. Smile

Maybe an homage to the Blue Wizards? [In reply to] Can't Post

True, they're not in M-e yet, but when they do arrive they pretty much sit on the sidelines throughout the whole War of the Ring.

Character is what we do on the internet when we think no one knows who we are.

It's the first I've heard of it. [In reply to] Can't Post

Well spotted! Smile

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

YouTube: Mistakes [In reply to] Can't Post


It has been listed on Youtube (mistake no 6)...

Another mistake, really obvious, that I have not seen listed (but that must be old news)... When Aragorn, in TTT, guesses what happened to Merry and Pippin, we see a scene of Pippin under the horse with hands untied before we see him cutting his bounds.
