Trailer for Lord of the Rings prequel Hope released

Today the trailer for Ben Mudge's Lord of the Rings prequel, Hope, has been released, to much salivating from a baying public, no doubt. Or myself at least, since this has been a project I was incredibly impressed by.

Ben's ambition has been bold, considering he had such a limited budget, but I think the results really speak for themselves.



Helping out in post production were Jonny Walker, editing, and Chris McCann providing the emphatic score.

My congratulations go out to all involved, and I can't wait to see the full length picture doing the festival circuit.

Screening of Hope in Odeon, Belfast

Tonight, Hope, the Lord of the Rings film I acted in was screened in the Odeon cinema in Belfast, as part of the HND show for Belfast Metropolitan College.



The show was huge hit, and was among the most popular of the evening, the audience rapt by the visual spectacle of the piece.

The film was edited down from 11 minutes to seven, and even then it was two minutes longer than the brief allowed, but I guess the invigilators were so impressed that they overlooked this. Unfortunately my major scene was one of the big casualties of the cut.

All the guys were there, Chris, Jonny, Aisling, and of course, the director, Ben.

It was great to see the finished project, but I can't wait to see the full length version.
