It has been a very exciting month here at Elvira Productions. First off,
I want to give major thanks to Adam Malin at Creation Entertainment. 'When You're Evil' won an award in The One Ring Celebration (ORC) 2007 video contest and received a live audience screening at the event earlier this month in Burbank, CA.
I was able to attend part of the three day event and it was awesome! My boyfriend and I met Andy Serkis (Gollum from the LotR).. that’s us below ^_^
Andy gave me hug and kiss on the cheek too! Lol I couldn’t
stop smiling.. and yeah, I gave him a dvd of all my vids :) There are video highlights from Andy’s Q&A session at
Creation’s website here: http://www.creationent.com/video.htm He was
very sweet and so hysterical. My favorite part is when a fan asked him to hold her engagement ring and say “My precious.”
also saw David Wenham’s (Faramir from LotR/Dilios from 300) Q&A and wow is he gorgeous. *melts thinking about it*
Billy Boyd (Pippin from LotR) was there as well, along with his band BeeCake, but I missed them both *sad*

ELVIRA PRODUCTIONS TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY!
Thank you to all my visitors, friends and affiliates who have all contributed
something memorable to this site over the years.
I really wanted to celebrate with a new video so I worked extremely
hard ( including having an epic battle with WMM ) to finish this in time. It's a character study of Frodo
and Arwen showing some of the similarities in their separate journeys throughout all three films. In the end it
never rendered in same high quality of my other recent videos but I'm very thankful that it rendered at all. As
usual, I hope you guys like it and it would mean a lot to me to hear your thoughts. My tagboard is always open or
you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks:)
Six New Awards
February 23, 2007
I hope everyone enjoyed their Valentines Day and I'm very glad to know that you guys liked
the cards. ^_^ Admittedly they were a lot of fun to
create and give out. It was like a flashback to my grade school days when everyone made and gave out valentines
to each other. lol I've been attempting to reorganize the site a bit lately so things work more smoothly
here and I do apologize to everyone for the delay in updates. There will be a new Frodo and Arwen
LotR video posted soon. The music of choice this time is 'The Swan Song' by Within Temptation. Until then
I'm happy to announce

Ok, I'm a little behind so this will be a tad long..
First of all, I really wanted to share this Valentines Day themed wallpaper. I had worked very hard
on it and think it turned out pretty good. It was a special request for my mum, lol.. and yes she was
really happy for it :) It's themed to the movie 'Somewhere in Time.' So please feel free to use it if you wish.
There are two new Affiliates to welcome!

if you've seen it =D Many thanks Dragonchic, J.C.,
Amy and Jay!

For the past three + years I’ve been editing fan
vids as a hobby and watching them for nearly twice that long. In doing so, I’ve come across a few really awesome/inspiring
ones that I personally love. I’ve always had a great respect for all my fellow vidders here on this giant expanse of
internet because without them I know I wouldn’t be here. So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to gradually gather
these videos that captivate me and honor them the best way that I know. Yes, that’s right.. a personal, one of a kind
award graphic created by me/myself just for them = ) I will soon be adding a new page to my site to showcase these works of
art, so keep a look out!
To begin it all
I would like to give a big thanks to Kate Pevensie for making a truly wonderful Frodo and Sam vid! Excellent editing (timing and clip selection), perfect song choice combined
with my two favorite characters ever, make ‘How to Save a Life’ my first award pick! ^_^ Congratz hun! You deserve it!
My 'When You're Evil'
won two more awards recently from EPMVA
