Screencap #’s 32 – 44

As beloved images continue to open in his mind, Frodo names them with delight.

Behind him, Sam is not listening with delight. The camera shows Sam's face while Frodo is speaking, weary and infinitely sad.

“Bag End," Frodo says with fatigued happiness, "Gandalf’s fireworks... the lights….”

As he listens, Sam is remembering, too. But for Sam, remembering is a very different experience. The memories bring Frodo a sense of recovery, but for Sam, they bring a sense of loss.

The camera returns to Frodo's face. "The Party Tree," he extolls....

Screencap #’s 46 – 51

The camera cuts back to Sam's face, obviously struggling against his feelings. He speaks.

“Rosie Cotton, dancing," Sam says with a painful wistfulness that hurts. “She had ribbons in her hair....”

When the camera returns to Frodo's face, it is plain he has heard the emotion in Sam’s voice.

(--to be cont’d…)

You must have had a difficult choice as to what to save and what to let go.

Yes, I did. It's not as though the caps of Sean Astin weren't worth capping, either. But my interest here is in Frodo, not Sam, so I did not even bother capping his close-ups. But they were essential, of course.

That last set here, 46 - 51, actually made me burst into tears. There are no words, really.

I'll see what I can do with these gorgeous images, Mechtild, and I'll get back to you.

Oh, Scarlet. Thank you.

As for the art, if you just did one, it would give me the idea of what your "pencil drawing" function can produce. The book's drawings I plan to use actually are done with coloured pencils, but the artist has not filled them all the way in, if you know what I mean. He has sketched in coloured pencil, but he has not "coloured" the drawings in. When a screencap is put through the filter the result reflects the fact that it was a fully-filled in image. The result looks solidly pencilled in. That's why it can't be made to match up exactly to the drawings I want to use,

Well, this is about the best it can do. Not very good, is it?

It actually is quite cool looking, but, no, it won't work for the drawings.


Thanks awfully much for trying, Scarlet. You are lovely.
