Hello Silmarillion Fans,

My name is Mike and i´m a film student from germany. My current project is a stop motion film about the last fight of Fingolfin against Morgoth.
After i´ve read the silmarillion for the first time, my mind was blown away. I was so impressed that i decided to focus my next project on the silmarillion.
I started to work out a storyboard for morgoth vs. fingolfin, and discovered that a real film would be too expensive and big, so i decided to make a stop motion film.
A good friend of mine and myself already started to work on the costumes and build up the miniature set for the project. But while working we realzied that it would be very helpfull if we had plain concepts of the gate, the tower, and details like grond and ringil.
So if we have some passioned silmarillion designers here who are interested in helping us with some concept arts, it would be very great.
Everybody who´s helping us will be named in the credits. This film is just a fan film, so we dont want to make money with it, or sell it.

I´m sorry for my bad english!

Thats a really nice Idea. I am rather new here and the simarillion is one of the first things I searched. The scene between morgoth and fingolfin was sad, bold and well detailed. I think what you are doing is a wonderful Idea! Leg me know what kind of drawings you need and I will do my best.

Something like this? [link] Or a real video with people (actors)? That's mine, I wanted animation, but indeed stop motion might be the only rational way (drawings or shots). If I can be of help, let me know. I'm in way too many projects, so time might be factor, too. Anyway fingers crossed for the project! :fingerscrossed:

This is a fantastic idea! =D I'd love to help (but I can't draw very well... OTL) so I guess I'll just hang around and do what I can? ^^

I think you should bring this to the attention of #NoldorinFamilyStore I think that they would be very interested and they are a bunch of amazing artists and people. :) Can't wait to see the final creation!

To be fair, most of us are probably in this group too. =P
Otherwise we couldn't call ourselves proper fans.

Very good point. :giggle: Thinking rationally about it I would be surprised if you weren't in this group! =P
