Thank you for tackling this project! I’m glad to see it was you, as I’ve been a fan of your work for a long time.
The Lord of the Rings is my favorite trilogy of all time as well, so I’ve had a cautious approach to the Rings of Power. Because I have done so many fan edits for my personal viewing, I was considering the possibility of editing the series myself, but I just don’t have the time at the moment to put into so large a project.
In the end, I decided (despite being a Prime Video customer) to pass on watching the series altogether and put my hope and trust in a talented fan editor with a love for LOTR.
Over the years, I have seen a number of fan edits (ones said to be great improvements over the originals) before ever having seen the originals themselves (although I did purchase copies before my viewing). And I must say, it’s kind of nice once in a while to be able to lean on the hindsight of a good fan editor so that your first experience of a story is aided by their vision.
Best of luck with the finishing touches. And thank you once again for taking this on!
