Prequel Of The Rings

t i t l e
When over 8 hours of LOTR just isn't enough...

Kate Madison, 31-year-old British amateur actress, was so inspired by director Peter Jackson's big screen version of the classic J.R.R. Tolkien tale that she decided to make her own movie.

Her own addition to the mythology of Middle-earth was based on two paragraphs Tolkien included in the appendix to his Lord Of The Rings books, which mentioned the adventures of Arathorn and Gilraen, the parents of Aragorn.
She did a 70 minute movie on 2 paragraphs?

Imagine if Tolkien had written 2 pages on them! ;-)

Anyway, here's the trailer - its only 80 seconds:
{80 sec}

Go here to watch 'Born of Hope' online.
*remember, its over an hour long...

btw: Anyone find those two paragraphs? I'll post them.
