Happy Froday!! I've been doing a bit of You Tube browsing - there are so many wonderful Frodo/LOTR/Elijah vids out there I could easily lose myself for hours! But today these two LOTR vids caught my eye because they're both quite unusual. The first, 'Crawling In My Skin' is Frodo-centric and is only very short compared to most but I thought the echoey sound and the black & white shots at the beginning were really effective. The second, 'Just a Fool's Hope', gives me shivers and goosebumps - it's so dramatic, I love it.

And I don't think there's an Elijah Wood fan on the planet who hasn't seen the amazing Oliver People's vid yet but, just in case, I'm also posting that here. Elijah - what are you trying to do to my poor heart?? *swoons yet again*

People are so creative, aren't they? And the resolution on these is so good. I don't go on YouTube that much, but the things I watch often have rather blurry visual quality. I guess it just depends! :)

Thanks for posting, Paulie.

>>People are so creative, aren't they?<<

They really are - I've never attempted to make a video, it seems quite complicated.

The quality of the vids on YT do vary enormously - some are really clear and sharp, others a bit blurry and some seem to be rather distorted so that everything looks elongated.

Yeah, Blossom makes it sound like fun, and she does gorgeous work, but it sounds extremely challenging to me, someone who's never made the tiniest, simplest animation. :)

I keep promising myself an entire day of LOTR viewing too, but so far I've just had to make do with the odd scene. Hope you can get your new copies soon:)

I adore the Oliver Peoples video - it's the sweetest, sexiest vid ever. :)

I'll be posting it myself later - it's good to keep such lovely things handy.

*hugs*

I couldn't agree more!! It's an amazing vid - I knew there was an Oliver People's vid in the pipeline but hadn't really taken much notice - I never imagined it would be like this:)

Thanks for the LOTR videos, I'd not seen them and both were very good :-)

I have seen the Oliver's People video, though ;0)

Hope you had a happy Froday? Mine was good once I got home from work!

Awwww, thank you for these!!!! I hadn't seen the first two before - and while they were short I really liked them. Very artistic and so intense.

Oh, and the second one!!! *swoons for the 364567th time* :))))

Aren't we lucky???????

*hugs*

There was, but there is no longer, thanks to you!
I had to google 'Oliver Peoples' .. although I do have fancy sunglasses.

Thank you for the Froday videos!! I like the frodocentric one, especially the black and white shots at the beginning - like you. The cuts in the middle are dizzyingly fast, though. The second is a classic, isn't it? It is wonderful and fascinating that there are (still) people out there creating these vids!

And the sunglasses-video is a little work of art, too. Maybe I have a kink: I've always wanted to see Elijah dance - e.g. I LOVE Frodo dancing at Bilbo's birthday party, but PJ only included a tiny bit of this in the movie (glares at Jackson). Wouldn't it be just great to see Elijah dance to something like Cancun (tape five)? Sigh.
So the tiny hints of dancing in this clip fed my almost-kink. Almost? O.K., grown-up kink.

Thank you, NotAlone, that was a generous Froday-post!

Ah, I'm so glad I've rescued the one fan who hadn't see the OP vid!! It's quite amazing, isn't it. I'd like to see Elijah do more dancing too - I'm sure he'd be really good, he's so agile and can be very graceful:)

Glad you enjoyed the Froday vids too - there are some really creative people out there:)

Sorry for the VERY late comment here.. but if you're anything like me then you won't mind. I'm trying to clear my impossibly full inbox, and came across this entry that i hadn't seen before. How on earth did i miss it!!

These are wonderful!!! The first one gets right under your skin, and the second is so colourful and dramatic. I thought i'd seen every E-related youtube vid known to man.. but obviously there are still many beautiful gems to be found. And the last one.. well, i could watch that all day and every day and never get bored.. that kiss *sigh*

Thank you for these :)

Of course not - I know how difficult it is to keep up with everything and I don't have to go out to work now!! We've actually been away for two days and I can't believe how much there is to catch up with!!

Glad you enjoyed the vids ...

>>well, i could watch that all day and every day and never get bored.. that kiss *sigh*<<

I know, but I think my favourite bit is where he goes to kiss her and she turns away and he turns and peers into the camera:)
