Fellow fantasy author Mattew J. Wellman joins me to talk about Peter Jackson’s movie adaptation of JRR Tolkien’s Return of the King, the third part of Tolkien’s epic fantasy classic, The Lord of the Rings.
Today, we talk about how the first Lord of the Rings book by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring, made the transition from printed book to fully fleshed-out high budget movie. We talk pacing, cringe moments, and what was changed to make it work better as a movie.
So, Matthew J. Wellman and I decided to start a podcast, focused on writing topics, including techniques and criticism. It will also probably end up including philosophy and meta-politics, because it’s us! We’re running it through soundcloud for now.
