Hi all,

I made three movies about the history of Middle Earth. Hopefully you enjoy wachting it as much as i enjoyed makeing it.
In time I hope to make the first part and maybe a part five. All credits to J.R.R. Tolkien for creating this fantastic fictional universe!

History of Middle Earth part 2. Starting with the beginning of the Second Age and ending with the start of the Battle of Dagorlad.

I'd say they're pretty well made. I currently do not have speakers attached to my PC, so I don't know what you did with the sound but the videos are pretty clever.
In addition to the clips you took, why don't you try adding paintings and illustrations in them as well. And include some more detail in the narrative to go with them? That would work great, imo. There are plenty of pictures out there. Ted Nasmith, Alan Lee and some others.

Just my two cents on this. Good job. :)

Thanks for the reply, i have thought about adding pictures/paintings, but finally decided not to, because I thought that would make it less active/dynamic, but maybe, when I can find the time for it I might update it with more details. What I did do, is make a first part. It’s ‘only’ about the war of wrath. So not really the first part of Tolkien history :D :nono:

Kind regards and hope you enjoy.

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you know that I have made a new video for this 'serie'. Starting with the wakening of Men, and ending with the Nírnaeth Arnoediad, the Battle of Unnumbered Tears. All part from the Quenta Silmarillion. My goal is to make two more movies and that i hope to have covered the basics of the history of Middle Earth.
