Nightfall in the hearts of Noldor

GIF image animation. If you zoom in, wait a while, first 'loop' works slowly.

Quenta Silmarillion movie trailer press release:

"Quenta Silmarillion" movie trailer premiere


Unfortunately it looks like nothing more will be made. At least for the moment.

The director's team said they had been threatened for their 'defamation of the good names of CurufinwŽ FŽanŠro and his sons'. A FŽanorian lawyer made claims to cancel the premiere of a movie 'based upon such unreliable resources as the infamous "Red Book of Westmarch" written by a Hobbit. A Hobbit!'

FŽanorians are not the only unsatisfied side of the conflict. Most of the nobilities of the House of FinwŽ are protesting the title of the first episode. In their opinion, a "Nightfall in the Hearts of Noldor" title suggests that the Noldor were the only group to blame in the history of The War of the Jewels. 'And what about Morgoth!?' they ask.

Exactly - what about the dark Vala? Here comes the answer. According to the words of his spokesman, 'Lord Melkor is really disappointed with the diminution of his part in the story and the omission of the whole "AinulindalŽ", where his voice sounded by far the most beautiful.' It looks like Morgoth has forgotten that "AinulindalŽ" is not a part of the "Quenta Silmarillion".

As if this was not enough, others are rallying against the film as well, including a group of Hobbits protesting against racial discrimination...

The director's team decided to postpone the premiere, previously planned for summer 2709. With invaluable help of Sirielle, they plan to show the movie December 3756.

The words visible in the image are beginning of The Oath of the FŽanorians, you'll find full text here [link] , with it's Quenya and modern English translation. Tengwar script frame at the image is Quenya version of the oath.

By the Halls of Mandos... If I ever should become incredibly rich and insane enough to produce a Silmarillion movie, remind me to hire you. Before Peter Jackson gets you...

The light of Aman in their eyes, eh? With a hint of fanatism... oh, this gets my imagination going...

Actually the way you set the scene, the armour gloomily, and flashing up suddenly - whenever I hear this old poem of Rilke now, I will have to think of the Noldor... it's in German, but a part of it goes roughly like this:

"... and behind me there's arrayed
ten brothers, alike from darkness made,
with helms like mine in quality,
old 'nd dull, yet clear like crystal suddenly"

Your idea sounds great :fingerscrossed: I'll do some more scenes with time, so when you'll be wealthy and insane enough we can start working on scenario ;)

The poem is beautiful, thank you for such great comparison :thanks: I didn't know this poem, need to find the whole version.

Oh, well, the full poem is here: Rainer Maria Rilke - Der Knabe.

Well, it's in German though, and I am not sure if someone competent tried to translate it... I could try to translate it fully if I am in the mood (it's like doing a quiz for me), but it could be far from competent. ;)

Had a bit of time and translated the whole. Warning, though! I tired to preserve the rhyme scheme, but the metrics are off for sure (if there at all). Thinking again, the whole poem might be more fitting for young Turin, dreaming daydreams of riding into battle like once his father did...


I wanna be like one of those,
who ride in arms through stormy night,
with torches that fly like unbound hair,
in the winds of their wild stride.
I want to be in front - like on a prow,
raising high like a banner still unfold,
a dark shadow, yet with a glint of gold,
and behind me there's arrayed
ten brothers, alike from darkness made,
with helms like mine in quality,
old 'nd dull, yet clear like crystal suddenly
The one beside me, with flash and scream,
blows the horn to make us room,
blows for us into the lonely gloom,
through which we race as in a dream.
Houses behind us bend and croach,
squares try to dodge us yet in vain,
alleys slant ahead as we approach,
the hooves of horses rattling like a rain.

I just noticed I've never answered your last comment - or maybe I did somewhere else? It was like 10 years ago!? I'm sorry!
This poem is so beautiful and fits the Silmarillion's mood perfectly. Thank you so much for the translation!

Malunek byl juz gotowy, ja go tylko sciemnilam jasnoscia - kontrastem. Wiecej sie bawilam z czerwonymi barwami dodanymi... W sumie ciemne rysunki tez domalowywalam. A robilam w Photoshop i potem Image Ready - przypadkiem szukajac pedzli trafilam na DA na tutorial na temat animowanych emotek i odkrylam, ze animuje sie w Image Ready ;) Po paru latach uzywania PS, ma sie ten refleks ;)

You explained well, it was me not knowing the story. If it's in the Silmarillion, I began reading it but stopped shortly after.

Sirielle Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2005   Digital Artist
Yes, it's from the 'Silmarillion'. Exactly - 'Quenta SIlmarillion' - I think 'The flight of Noldor' chapter.

'Silmarillion' is quite hard to read at the first time - lot of names and places, heroes come and go... You need to read fast the beginning and don't give up or... Just start with QS, but then you missing some mythological background to the world.

And do you remember the story of the first, second and third kinslaying done by FŽanorians? First with the aid of Fingon's host. Carnage in Alqualonde, assault of Doriath and the Mouth of Sirion? They went out of Aman to fight with Dark Enemy but started and finish killing their kin. That's what I accented - background becoming red, he is closing his eyes on 'friend', doesn't want to see what has done...

I am not sure if I explained it well...

Once again, really beautifully done, and extremely atmospheric. I love how the Star of Feanor emblem is a lot more luminous than the rest, sort of mirroring the West Gate of Moria. He looks extremely fearsome and strong, and I can only imagine the fear that the Orcs must have felt when thousands more of the Noldo marched east and northward. Great stuff!

Wszystko zalezy czy ogladalas online, czy z dysku. Flash jest jasny, ale powinien szybko mignac. Ustawialam to 500 razy, probujac rozne wersje blyskajace ;)

Jak sie ma blok w jednym medium, to sie rusza drugie ;P Najpierw chcialam sobie zrobic avatarek, a potem mnie naszlo na 'trailer filmowy' ;)
Jak w koncu rusze podrecznik do Flesha - kupilam juz z pol roku temu, to cos ciekawego z tego wyjdzie.

Jak juz wladowalam upgrade, to mialam wizje jakby to mozna bylo doprawic - jeszcze wiecej czerwieni i krew na zbroje... W 1 mignieciu. Tylko nie potrafie tego na razie namalowac.
W kazdym razie nie bawilam sie krzywymi, tylko pomalowalam niebo na 'krwawy' kolor ;)

Prosta rzecz - z bazowego Noldora z pomoca narzedzi 'jasnosci/kontrastu' zrobilam noc i rozjasniony blysk. Domalowalam powieki na osobnej warstwie (wszystko jest na osobnych warstwach). Pozniej zrobilam wersje czerwone - 'balansem kolorow' dodalam czerwieni w polcieniach i cieniach, pedzlami reszte, ale 'pedzlem historii' przywrocilam prawie w calosci kolory na twarzy. Srodek animacji jest bardziej czerwony jak sie przyjrzysz.

I fakt - wyjsciowo to mial byc awatar, ale animowalm na duzym obrazku i efekt mi sie za bardzo spodobal ;)

Krzywe to bardziej zakrecone narzedzie, jasnosc i kontrast sa proste jak but, nawey MS Word to ma wbudowane. Wiekszosc zmian i tak pochodzi spod pedzla, balans kolorow to jakies 5% efektu.

Sirielle Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2005   Digital Artist
It works faster offline. Perhaps I need to reduce the amount of used colours, then it should flash faster. And I changed the 'lightning' images - present one has got red background, maybe too bright.
If I new flash it would be nicer ;)

Now I need to work on it more. Thank you for your opinion! :)
