Hard to believe [In reply to] Can't Post

this backdrop is real. The plains leading up to that sudden mountain range are just incredible. Mr. Loresilme is is not a fantasy fan, so he's only watched the films with me occasionally, but there are three specific things about them that he enjoys: the miniature/bigature work, the Ents march on Isengard, and the scenery of New Zealand. This is a beautiful shot.
  1. Edoras obviously took a lot of work, what do you think about it? It's such a shame that it all had to be taken down afterward. Any comments on the building of Edoras?
    It reminds me of the monks who create those beautiful sand drawings and then let them be destroyed by rain and water.
  2. The wind and cold seems to reflect Eowyn's sorrow, any thoughts?
    iirc, there are a few scenes where Eowyn comes to this spot? It's like when you've got one of those special places you go to, when you need to clear your head, calm down, heal yourself. Where when you get there, you're able to just take a deep breath and get centered. There are places like that, that are the equivalent of splashing cold water on your face. This seems to be Eowyn's special place.

Lovely screencap, thank you!
