LOTR video  
I've been watching too much YouTube as usual, mostly interviews with actors I like, but also lately I've gotten into video mashups and some fan videos set to music. Typically, fan videos are montages of random stillshot or video clips of their favorite actors with a song playing in the background. My least favorite fan vids use songs they simply like and which have NOTHING to do with the clips -- the worst offenders have both a horrible tune and an annoying set of lyrics; dippy synth pop tunes ruin it for me as well as rap songs. The best montages will have some organization or theme and the song will be tolerable at the very least.

This video is different. It's more like a professional music video, but the maker has set up Return of the Kings clips to follow the lyrics of the song ("I put my trust in you" for example shows Frodo hanging from the precipice in Mount Doom at the end of the movie and Sam pulling him up). The song it's set to is Linkin Park's "In The End." I just thought it was a very good video and was well crafted from both artistic and technical standpoints, and I wanted to share it.
