Has anybody heard when the photo ops will be up? I believe somebody posted a link to it here a few days ago, which I bookmarked. So far, there aren't any photos up at that site, though. I thought it was 10 days to 2 weeks after the convention, and today would mark 2 weeks. Was I wrong? Does it usually take longer? I've never had to go about picking up my photos online before, as last time they had them back later that day. So this is all new to me, and I just want to be sure I go about picking up my order correctly.

by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment -- Pre-orders for
both DVD and PSP format start on Amazon.com next
Monday for U.S. and Canada (so be here for a special TORn

growing sensation since January, RINGERS tells the
story of 50 years of Tolkien’s influence on popular
culture. Audiences found the next “LOTR” film they’ve been

Feature Documentary at the Newport Beach Film Festival
and then getting snapped up for worldwide distribution

PARTIES! The possibility of celebrating the November
release of RINGERS by having a big premiere screening
event for Fans has been heard whispered around the
hallways of Sony! If any news of this becomes a reality, be
sure to check with TheOneRing.net for the latest
developments. Ringer fans should be in for a real treat if
the rumors prove to be true in any way!

Narrated by Dominic Monaghan (star of ABC’s Lost and
the Academy Award winning Lord of the Rings trilogy),
RINGERS garnered outrageous attention from audiences
and press alike during its smash festival circuit run.
Screenings continuously sold out in Newport Beach,
Dallas, and Park City -- with many enthusiasts camping
out in Utah’s freezing January weather just to be the
first to get tickets.

Premiere magazine proclaimed what eager audiences and
fans have waited to hear: "There's a new documentary
to take you back to The Shire" -- while The Toronto
Star called RINGERS "comprehensive, entertaining and
informative pop cultural history." The Indie Film
uber-website FilmThreat loudly praised: "It is a documentary
that will always be a salient part of “Lord of the
Rings” history.... See it, absorb it, love it!"

RINGERS charts the ongoing influence of “The Lord of
the Rings” on pop culture, which continues at full
speed more than 50 years after the books’ first
publication. Filled with exceptional interviews with legendary
rock musicians, filmmakers, professors, actors,
authors, and true-blue Ringer fans, the film breathlessly
weaves together five decades of Western popular culture.
Infused with a dynamic rock score, irreverent cut-out
animation (á la Terry Gilliam), and even a centerpiece
audience Sing-a-long, RINGERS is a genre-busting
documentary that shows how a single literary work continues
to spark the minds and hearts of millions.

About the film:

RINGERS: LORD OF THE FANS is a feature-length
documentary that explores how "The Lord of the Rings" has
influenced Western popular culture over the past 50 years.
Moving beyond “cult classic” and over several
different generations, the film unearths countless people
gathered under the banner of ‘Ringer’ -- academics,
musicians, movie stars, authors, filmmakers, and a plethora
of pop junkies. Celebrity interviewees include Peter
Jackson, Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Clive Barker, and
David Carradine.

RINGERS features a dynamic rock-driven score with
musicians who were influenced by J.R.R. Tolkien. Several
indie recording artists have provided new covers of
songs from previous “Rings” adaptations. Produced in
association with the popular fan-site TheOneRing.net,
RINGERS stands as the most comprehensive film document of
the ongoing impact of “The Lord of the Rings.”

From the hippie counter-culture to the electronic age;
from the Bakshi animated film to Jackson’s epic
trilogy; this documentary brings together extensive footage
collected over 21 months -- across three continents.

What began as the private amusement of a tweedy Oxford
professor has now become a new mythology for the 21st
century. RINGERS: LORD OF THE FANS shows how an
adventure story published in 1954 has had dynamic
ripple-effects through Western pop-culture. RINGERS carefully
pulls away the veil between Tolkien’s book and the
creations of art, music, and community that have been
inspired by it.

Writer/Director/Producer - Peter Jackson, Actor - Elijah Wood, Actor - Sir
Ian McKellen, Actor - Viggo Mortensen, Actor - Sean
Astin, Actor - Dominic Monaghan, Actor - Billy Boyd, Actor

Colleen Doran, Illustrator/Author - Jill Thompson, and
hundreds of Tolkien fans!

So, what did everybody think of ELF? Favorite moments? Did it meet your expectations? For me, it exceeded all of my expectations. My favorite moments were...well, everything on Sunday, since Elijah is my favorite. But also I enjoyed the scholar panels which I thankfully was able to see this time. The Emerald Rose concert was fantastic. Speaking of E.R., I have to say I greatly enjoyed the little unexpected "concert" in the lobby area outside of the convention hall on Sunday. It was nice to hear and see them again, especially when Peter S. Beagle joined them. Wonderful moment! :)

John and Sean's panels were very entertaining. To me the entire event seemed much more relaxed, much more intimate, than ORC. Perhaps that is why photographs were allowed in the autograph lines. (Although I hope that will just become a regular thing with all LOTR cons.) I know I would consider attending another ELF convention if Ceation and TORn decide to hold one.
