Do you love “The Lord of the Rings” spoof film “Rise of the Fellowship”? We here at ShockYa love it and you can read about more “Rise of the Fellowship” coolness in our interview with the film’s star, Justin Moe. If you’re a fan of the world of Middle-earth and want to take a new journey to another mystical realm, the director of “Rise of the Fellowship,” Ron Newcomb, is aiming to take you. But he needs your help.
Newcomb is working on a new high fantasy film called “The Rangers.” The film is about, as the title states, about an elite force of warriors defending the borders of their land. Here’s more from the film’s Kickstarter:
“The Rangers is about a special force of elite warriors known as Rangers. What is a Ranger? Rangers are mysterious warriors who operate on the fringe of the kingdom of Olaran, using their unique set of wilderness skills to bring justice to the borderlands. Founded many years ago by King Alirion who saw the need to have a force of warriors loyal to the crown, outside of the highly political royal court and aristocratic knights of the military, as a first line of defense. A force that could be the eyes, ears, voice, and hand of the king in the wilds. They are the beacon lighters, they are the law and order to the distant boundaries of the realm, set on the frontiers to guard and watch the borders of the Kingdom. Our story follows the adventures of the unit of Rangers led by Lieutenant Brander Noke, also known as Wolf, for his ferocious, savage, and often unorthodox pursuit of elves during The Elf Wars, and their new rookie Soren Fell, a half elf, whose identity may hold the key to unlocking the enigma of the gathering darkness. Together, they must strive to help their world to overcome the greatest challenge of their time, while they face their own personal demons. Can the Rangers save their world?”
The film’s Kickstarter goal is $50,000 and is currently at $11,872 with 129 backers.
