The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies
In theaters December 17th, 2014
The final in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies" continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.
To upload a video you made is always exciting. But this one is different. I worked for many months on song and video, even though I really was supposed to do other things, but I couldn´t stop getting deeper and deeper into Middle Earth. This was not just making a song, this was getting the extensive story of "The Hobbit" into some minutes of music and pictures.
I love the result - which I think is most important. But now when it´s finished I hope there´ll also be some more people who will enjoy my work.

lyrics of "Where My People Belong" by Mara Mhee :
Inside the walls of the Lonely Mountain is where my people belong.
With all my strength I´ll fight my life long to bring my people back home. Where my people belong
The greatest kingdom of Middle Earth,
the legend beauty of Erebor.
Ruled with utter surety
by kings of the line of the deathless Durin.
A fortress so mighty, it makes you shiver.
Lashings of gold running like rivers.
The right to rule under the mountain
gives the most precious jewel, the arkenstone.
Homage and gifts all people bring,
even the lofty elven king.
If you call your name in this mighty fortress,
you´ll hear it back from a thousand voices.
The peace and the plenty should come to an end.
The wealth of the dwarves caught too much attention.
Dragons are known for their love for gold.
And so he came to conquer the stronghold.
The army stood tall, but they had no chance,
one spit of the dragon kills a thousand men.
The once who escaped ran for their lives,
they look back to their home,
but all they saw was fire.
Robbed of his kingdom the king of Erebor,
wandered the wildness to search for payed labor.
With just an oaken branch against the orc´ean chief,
since been known as Thorin Oakenshiel.
Son of Thráin, son of Thror,
coming back to claim his throne.
The ancient story of a mighty stronghold
taken back by it´s king was long foretold.
At the mere sight of treasure and hoarded gold
dwarves become fierce and bold.
Myth it became that dwarves hate elves,
in their greatest need there came no help.
In the history of dwarves a little fellow
became essential part of recapturing the hollow.
A gentle soul and sage mind
to calm Thorin´s wrath and enormous pride.
If more of us valued food and cheer
above hoarded gold this world would be merrier.
A big lesson learnt from an unusual creature,
a Hobbit from the shire became the dwarves´ teacher.
