New Lord of the Rings Fan Film

A new Fan made Lord of the Rings film has been released on the internet and is already causing quite a stir among fans, with over 500 000 views on you tube. Created on a budget of just £25 000, Born of Hope is set long before the events in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and tells the story of Aragorns parents, Arathorn and Gilraen and the birth of Aragorn himself.

The brain child of Kate Madison, who even put her whole savings into the costs, Born of Hope is an incredible creation on a miniscule budget, with a large cast, intricate costumes and special effects and even a computer generated Hill Troll.

In another first the film even borrows some Orcs from the first Lord of the Rings Fan made film, the rather excellent Hunt for Gollum, which also shares some production members, see if you can pick them out.

We thought it would be worth posting both of these films just in case you missed the first one or would just like to see them together.
