Several years have passed since we launched our LOTR Parody – The Biggest of Dem Rings 2 – and recently I managed to salvage the interviews and all the Behind-the-Scenes materials from an old HDD. While I haven’t kept in touch with every one of the actors and friends who played in the films, it would be a shame not to show you guys the amount of effort that went into making them.
Bit by bit, little by little, I’m working on a full, comprehensive “Making Of” to show you what it means to handle a big project and a large crew. You’ll see bloopers, scenes that have been cut, various script-elements that never made it in and, of course, the entire production process.
I’ll even make a few comparisons between various workstyles, mainly my own from back then and from now, to show you how we’ve grown and how certain, tiny details can make a huge difference in telling a story.
You’ll see pictures from the set, meet the people behind the characters and see how cool it is when promises are kept even years after they’ve been made. Perhaps “Making Of” is not a right term for it. Even if it was a parody, this LOTR tribute was more of a journey taken with friends – a journey which I will always treasure and I hope I can get this feeling across to you.
I’ll keep posting updates on this. I’m still trying to figure out if it should be one big movie or more smaller clips. What do you think? Leave a comment below please, let me know how you prefer it. Thanks!
