So this is my second go at editing the Rings of power, I decided to change my original plan of keeping the harfoot plot in movie one to spreading it out over both movies so I could also create one full length version at some point, also after many viewings I did not feel satisfied overall so decided to start from scratch.
THE LIGHT OF THE ELDAR
Runtime: 2hrs 12mins
1080p full HD
1 : We start with the familiar Peter Jackson movie style opening.

3: Title card appears as ‘the light of the ELDAR .
4: Trimmed the search for sauron during the mountain expedition.
5: Intro to Nori brandyfoot picking fruit and a brief intro to her farther, (in this version nori only has a father as to keep the story tight for editing some characters had to go unfortunately)
