BATTLELORE - Elvenking

Get "The Return Of The Shadow" here:

We knew Markkus's talent as a video director and his enthusiasm, as we asked him to shoot the video for us, was so overwhelming that it was a pure pleasure to work with the professional like he is. The "Elvenking" video enters to Tolkien's Middle-earth from multiple angles combining noticeable characters and scenes from Tolkien' written poetry.

It is very rare to get an opportunity to write this kind of epic video, so I didn’t hesitate to say yes when Jyri messaged me if I would be interested in making it. Back in the days Battlelore’s “Storm of the Blades” was one of the first videos I directed so it was nice to unite again with the band.
