Short film: The tough everyday life of an orc in Mordor

The everyday life of orcs in Mordor is tough. Any given day they end up with a knife slicing their stomach, an arrow piercing their jugular, or their head severed by who knows what. This short film tells the story of an Orc in one of those complicated days.


The film—directed by Sam Gorski and Niko Pueringer—is based on a soon-to-be-released video game called Shadows of Mordor.

Get a decent plot, make it at least 2 hours long, and I think we may have a blockbuster hit. May be some flaws, but overall it was a thrill to watch.
