“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory…If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!” ― J.R.R. Tolkien
Join us on a journey to Mirkwood. Take yourselves past the trees, streams, and spiders into the heart of the Elven King’s sanctuary. That’s where the party is…
In the spirit of Tolkien’s elves and with The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings fandom in mind, we welcome you to help us create the Thranduil Music Video: A Lady Gaga Parody. Inspired by the party king himself, we aim at taking the concept of Thranduil as both the Ruler of Mirkwood and the Ultimate King of Fabulous. And who better to add to the fabulosity than Lady Gaga?
This video is being made by fans, for fans. It will portray not only the Elves of Mirkwood, but Dwarves, Hobbits (a baby Bilbo!), and ultimately (without revealing too much), many other fandoms and cosplayers. Picture an Elvish nightlcub, a High Elven Banquet, a Fashion Runway and much more - all set to the tune of a high-energy song that reflects the spirit of the Party King of Mirkwood.

Set to a Lady Gaga song which will be revealed when the Kickstarter funds reach $1000.00, this music video is all about escaping into a world of fantasy, fun, Elves, and music. Every penny of your donations will be spent on:
Cameras & equipment
CAST We’ve got our main players set and ready to go. I’m so excited and grateful to have their support, and we will be recruiting other cosplayers to join the ranks. Don’t forget, YOU can have the chance to be featured in the video with one of our Kickstarter rewards.
Camera & Equipment: Our talented production team of Brandon Agan & Brandon Hyde are professionals in their respective industries.
Brandon Agan is a screenwriter, director, and master of post-production who runs Recording Red Studios.
Brandon Hydeis a professional director of photography who has worked on feature films, short films, music videos and commercials, both nationally and internationally.
Locations: Location, location, location. It’s the most critical part of the filming. We’ve targeted some choice options such as the University of Tampa and the State Theater in St. Petersburg, but we are still searching for some optimal locations. And they don’t come cheap, so we need your help to secure them.
Costumes/Props/and Makeup: The details matter - fantasy is as fantasy does, so we want to bring the realm of Mirkwood, and it’s inhabitants, plus all the other fantasy characters that will be a part of this production, to life in the best way possible. We’re talking prosthetics, wigs, and much more - we want the best quality possible, which is where you come in.
Visual/Special Effects: This music video is all about taking you another world and to do that, we’ll need to create the best visual effects possible. VFX artists bring this to life and we’re working on getting the best we can added to this team.
**Please know that the budget we’ve set above is the bare minimum to get us to where we need to be. The more we get, the better the end product (and the more fabulous!).
