  15. Perhaps you could benefit from our new independent film networking site Mutinee? It is aimed at any and all types of filmmaker and you can find all sorts of advice and video’s that can be shared, rated and commented on!

  16. Adam Battlehammer says:

    Maybe oh maybe maybe maybe… eventually Peter Jackson or hopefully SOMEBODY, will do a Silmarillion movie. Although sadly dwarves don’t feature much in those stories. So maybe we can wish for a Forgotten Realm’s Dark Elf Saga!!!

  17. Hey folks maybe this is for Kiwis only seeing we are so far away from Hollywood!!
