  • Looked forward to this session for the past two weeks, but because I have to be up super early tomorrow, I can't stay up and attend. Sigh..
    I'm back! Actually arrived in China on Aug 28th but have been busy settling in. What did I miss? :) *commences catch-up process*

    Wow, Nick. Yeah, I can't imagine what I would do if I didn't have translate with me everywhere I went...haha. I used to be able to pick up languages fairly quickly, but I can already tell I'm in for the long haul with Chinese. I mean, I knew it would be more difficult than others, but man...I've got a lot of homework ahead. :)

    Thanks, Marie! I'm on a nine day holiday for now so things are pretty great, hehe.

    Edited the list of nominees to reflect where things stand currently

    Thanks so much for monitoring that for us! I'll see if I can scare up another couple nominations this evening for some of the under-3 roles.

    My pleasure! And yay! :)
    So, I'm starting to fall in love with the idea of Joanna Vanderham as adult Idril. I nominated her for Amarië, however.

    Amarië is such a small role though, why not suggest someone else, it could be someone unknown? Of course I don’t know Vanderham, but some seem to.
    Richol Richards

    Hmmm, yeah I just might suggest another actress. I know Vanderham from The Paradise, a charming little series that aired on the BBC.

    Ah ok that one; I missed that, or caught half an episode. Seemed nice, rather good.
    Okay, I think there are only 10 roles left now with fewer than three nominations. I'll try to fill a few more tomorrow.

    Got it. I'll try to at least get someone for Amarie. I may have a potential Eldalote. We'll see.

    I think we skip Eldalotë. We can cast her later, if/when we give her a role, but right now, she's just a name on the page, not a character in her own right.

    Gotcha.
    I pasted all the text of the List to make it searchable for possible nominations. It's a bunch of text so I'll delete it once voting is over

    I probably should have done this ages ago, once nominations were opened... my apologies! Hopefully this helps give us some ideas if we're stumped on actors to come up with for certain roles.

    It wraps to a second page, so don't forget to check that when you Ctrl+F.

    Wonderful!
    So, I'm just putting it out there - don't be surprised if you see me suddenly making a bunch of nominations in batches this week.

    Do you think it would be of much help to post all the names mentioned for our Season 3 roles so far? I realize the list in the forums is not searchable, because the only way I can post it is as an image. But there are a lot of names available for some of these roles, which may help us when we're scratching our heads trying to come up with a nomination.

    It's a holiday where I currently am, aka "National Catch-up-on-the-boards Day" for me. :)

    Sorry I'm such an on-and-off presence right now. I would say it's going to get better in the latter half of this month, but I can't for sure make that call yet...

    Well, we enjoy when you can be here!

    Thanks! I definitely miss the Silmfilm community whenever these long stretches of busyness occur, and it's always a joy whenever I get some time to get back into things, as brief as those windows are becoming these days... :|
    I may or may not be cheating and spending just a liiiiittle extra time on the boards today vs. actually getting work done...ahem.
    Mmmk, so would it be terrible to make Nimloth Beleg's daughter? Because I think I'm warming to that idea...
    MithLuin
    MithLuin
    Beleg always struck me as much more of a loner than a family man, but I don't hate the idea. It does make sense to consider her parentage, and seems unlikely that her mother and father would be 'nobodies' in Thingol's court.

    Tolkien answered this. Nimloth is Celeborn's neice or great-neice, if you made Celeborn a Sinda. She's the daughter of Galathil, son of Galadhon, son of Elmo, the obscure third brother of Thingol and Olwe. Presumably Elmo and Galadhon got killed by Dwarves (or Orcs!), otherwise one of them would be the next King of Doriath.
    MithLuin

    Elmo does not exist in our adaptation. Most of Thingol and Celeborn's extended family was killed/captured by the Hunter at Cuivienen. So, we can at least ask the question of who Nimloth would be related to in this version.
    Please excuse momentary lapses in common sense. Clearly I still haven't recovered from extreme sleep deprivation....

    No need to apologize! Being sleep deprived is like being drunk. I have said some really stupid things on little sleep. Such as, when I'd stayed up all night to watch the stars, I wanted to protest someone comparing 9/11 to the Titanic. So I said, "The Titanic didn't sink." Realizing that wasn't quite right, I corrected myself:"I mean, nobody died."
    MithLuin
    MithLuin
    What I *meant* to say was that the difference between the sinking of the Titanic and the terrorist attack on 9/11, while they were both disasters with a high casualty rate, was that the Titanic was an accident but 9/11 was a deliberate attack. So, you know...I was close :p
    Richol Richards
    Richol Richards
    Hahaha, fairly close. ;) Yeah, I've also had conversations like that...much to the amusement of my friends.
    Okay so I've missed most of the script discussions this season. Just to make sure, only episodes 1 & 2 are currently available, right?

    Thank you! Yeah, I figured I'd try to catch up on as much as possible while I have a couple of free days. :) Toooootally forgot I could just access the ended sessions from the previously posted links, and that this was what Haakon was saying. And I've actually done this before, yet today my cognitive faculties all seem to have departed. *Facepalm*. Don't tell anyone my degree was in Computer Science or anything...

    So, my typical modus operandi is to change the raw video to "unlisted" after the sessions are complete, so random people don't stumble across them. They can still be viewed if you have a link, like the ones I post on the forums.

    Gotcha. Thanks!
