Now this is just a little bit of fun. But with the easier availability of things like Cameras, graphics and background stuff one can use on Computers, it should mean that making amateur film a bit easier. So given the making of films like Hunt for Gollum and Born of Hope, if one was to film a chapter from the Silmarillion, which most of them would require a bit of adaptation which one would anyone like to see? Personally I think a filming of the tale of Beren and Luthien would be good!

IMO the tale of Beren and Luthien would be very difficult to film.

Not if you're stupid. Then, everything's easy: and you'll get rave reviews no matter how silly it is.

I just envisioned someone using Jethro Tull's Thick as a Brick as the soundtrack for The Music of the Ainur.

Just be glad it's not Disney's Fantasia. []

Meanwhile back in the year one...

Right now, on my computer hard-drive. I may have some Tolkien geeks in a a college film-making class interested in bringing it to life. We'll see.
