NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

(no subject)

Announcement

This is just to say that I'll shortly be posting Pts. 1 - 4 of the Sammath Naur series (10 parts in all).

It will take me a few minutes to upload the entries and install the links between them, so if any of you are champing at the bit, please be patient. It is much more rewarding to view the caps in sequence.

Thanks!

NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

Sammath Naur Pt. 1: ‘I’m Here, Sam.’

Collapse )Before I present the caps, I want to say how brilliantly I think they shot the opening of this scene. When Sam enters the Sammath Naur, the first we see of Frodo is a small, solitary shape; a still, indistinct figure standing in the midst of swirling clouds of steam. I think this image vividly portrays Frodo's inner state, and without using any words. At the critical moment Frodo is alone, in crisis, his feelings unclear; and the forces he's facing are daunting.
