I have during a long time been thinking about an idea of mine, and I wonder if there is anyone who think it’s a good one.
I am one of those who love the books of JRR Tolkien, but was quite disappointed by the movies.
Wouldn’t it be possible to start a project dedicated to make a completely 3D-animated film of the books? You could make it completely faithful to the books, and with opensource and no timelimits, it could in time be gradually improved until it looks completely realistic.
You could have a webpage where anyone can publish models of the characters and landscape and such, and where you then can put them togather into animations, and gradually into a whole movie.
Please tell me if you think this is a good idea or if I’m just nuts…
