It's a wrap!  (Almost)...

Yep we're finally there. Lead actor Adrian has wrapped all his scenes and the post production team are diving into the rough cut, complete with punchy sound design and ambitious CGI. All that remains is to film 7 shots of a horse this Sunday and then we're ready to set our release date. This we intend to be end of December, although we may decide to push it back to January to make sure everything is completed to the highest standards.

Final day of shooting approaches...
The past two months been very busy on the production, with filming of several key scenes and some familiar characters. This week the team is gearing up for the very last shoot of the film which sees Strider (Adrian Webster) meet a new foe. It's been an emotional ride for all the team involved so far, and we'll be sad to finish the filming but this brings us on to the next exciting stage - post production. Editor Lewis Albrow has put together a rough cut of the film so far and we're now polishing it up as we slot the final scenes into place. Simultaneously a team of sound designers and visual effects guys are beginning work on making Middle Earth look and sound as magical as it should. We hope to announce our predicted online release date soon and a new full length trailer.
