I listened to this song for over two hours a day for over a week planning this vid. It covers 10+ hours of footage from the LOTR saga. I hope everyone likes as much as I do.

    :clap: well that was just freakin’ amazing! I would have to say right up there with Di’s “Clocks” with that wonderful editing. Dunno what effect you used to melt between the nazgul scenes, but I :love: it.

  2. Jenn says:

    Wow, thanks! I think “Clocks” is a far superior effort, but I’m glad to be remotely associated with it :lol: The effect is a new one that came with Ulead Video Studio 9. It’s Flashbak (#8, I believe).

    Glad you like it and thanks again, hon!! :smile:

  3. lisa says:

    thank you! what a gift you’ve given to us … truly, excellently done! wow … the best i’ve seen of lotr – and coldplay (as she kisses her fingers)!

    again, thank you for sharing!

  4. Jenn says:

    Thanks, Lisa! I’m so glad you like it. I think it’s definitely one of my best vids and I was soooo hoping people would like it, too. :smile:

  5. Jessica says:

    That video was so awsome. I can tell that you put a lot of effort into that video. Your work paid off for it is excellent.:wink: I think that it’s a wonderful video!!

  6. Jenn says:

    Thanks, Jessica! I did put a LOT into it…maybe even too much!
    Thank you so much for your praise :wink2:

  7. Muse says:

    :eek::love::clap::wink:Awesome!!! Another favorite of mine again! You go! Must have taken you a long time to edit that one. Puts my vids to shame LOL

  8. Jenn says:

    Thank you, Muse! I actually thought of you with each shot of Frodo and the other Hobbits! :lol:

    Oh Lordy, this video really took my breath away. The editing is SPECTACULAR (I make videos of my own, but not NEARLY as genius as this), and I never though of this song to go SO well with the story of LoTR. If you don’t mind, I’m going to pimp this video on my LJ and most definitely link it to your site!

  10. Jenn says:

    Thanks a ton, mIsS LySs, (I think I broke my hand typing that). Hee! I’m glad you liked it. It’s definitely one of my best (which really isn’t saying much, as most of them are shite). :smile:

  11. Emilie Sherry says:

    i seriously really love this vid. im big on lotr fandom and visit ur site monthly to check out if u made anymore lotr vids… lucky u got over that star wars craze!! *tee hee* but i seriously love this vid, perhaps best one yet! keep up the good work! :thud:

  12. KajaM says:

    Awesome one!!! The editing is really really really great. Gotta love the choice of scenes and how they fit with the lyrics… escpecially the “to show you how it all began” parts. :wink:

  13. Jenn says:

    Thank you very much, Emilie and KajaM! I’m partial to this vid, too. :smile:

    AWESOME VIDEO :eek: . I’d like to watch an ad about LOTR on tv like this video ! they have horrible ones!. just one question what is the codec for hi resolution video ? Thanks in advance.

  15. Jenn says:

    Thanks, anon! The codec for the higher res vid should be one of the Windows Media codecs. I would guess that it’s no higher than Windows Media 8, but it *may* be WM 9. :wink2:

  17. Fiona says:

    Oh WOW!!!! Quite simply one of, if not the best LOTR video I have ever seen. The song was perfect and the editing flawless. Brilliant, take a bow….:clap:

  18. Jenn says:

    Wow! Thanks, Fiona! Really, thank you so much. I’m glad you liked it :smile:

    Thanks, Fiona for the rec on Fanvid-Recs.com. :smile: I’m extremely proud to add it to the site, and I humbly thank you a ton!

  27. RDphantom says:

    Interesting song choice, well edited. I loved the chorus “If you could see it/ then you’d understand” with flashes of everyone being sucked in by the ring. That was inspired editing.
