“Born of Hope,” a professionally-produced feature-length film based on the Tolkien Trilogy, Lord of the Rings, will be screened on the popular global video entertainment site beginning December 1, 2009. This release follows the highly successful launch of another "Lord of the Rings" fan film, "The Hunt for Gollum," in May of 2009.
“Born of Hope” tells a Tolkien-inspired original prequel story with a host of characters never before seen on screen. The 70 minute prequel is the story of Aragorn’s parents, Arathorn and Gilraen, along with the characters who sacrificed everything to keep Aragorn safe.
Director and producer Kate Madison assembled a cast of professional actors and production talent to capture the feel of the Tolkien universe established by Peter Jackson in his trilogy. Made for a fraction of a typical film, “Born of Hope” manages to maintain the visual fantasy world of Hollywood productions with an original script that brings a new dimension to The Lord of the Rings.
The film was funded entirely by private donations while talented cast and crew of the film worked for no financial gain. Collaboration across the Internet, the film’s British producers recruited creative people from across the world including the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany and New Zealand for scripts, costumes, props, music, and artwork.
