Lord of the Hoops: Let's Make a Fellowship

Do you like the idea of Lord of the Rings, but can't be bothered to sit down for 3 hours? Neither could we. But unlike you, we did something about it.
Lord of the Hoops: Let's make a Fellowship is the award winning* spin-off film made by and starring the Gnus. Based on the plot of Lord of the Rings, it condenses the film into a manageable chunk.
Unfortunately the budget, sets, costumes, acting, filming, singing, composing, editing, directoring, spelling, producing, sound recording, script-writing and publishing aren't as good. But still - it's much, much shorter.

Don't settle for more - get less!
