"My Source Filmmaker Saxxy Awards submission. This idea's been floating around in my head for a long time, and with the release of SFM, the announcement of the Saxxies, and the upcoming release of The Hobbit, this seemed like the time to do it.
The plan wasn't simply to remake The Lord of the Rings with Team Fortress 2 characters. Instead I wanted to find a way to (briefly) tell the LOTR story completely within the context of the TF2 universe as a continuation of the Mann vs. Machine story.
I'm not expecting to win a Saxxy (especially after seeing other entries), but it was a lot of fun to make and I would certainly appreciate your vote regardless.
