In our early, brainstorming phase, members of the TORn History Project Steering Committee tried to identify the purpose of TORn History Project.
What Purpose Does a History of TORn Serve?
- functions as a guidebook/welcome center/concierge desk, etc. for short and long term visitors
- having a system in place makes it easier to document as things are happening
- New people are discovering the LOTR films all the time - they will come at the information with fresh (not nostalgic) eyes
- Any fan website that has thrived for 10 years deserves some attention and documentation as to why.
- We can link to it and make it part of the FAQ (that all the newbies read first thing before they do anything else ;-).
Who is Our Projected Target Audience?
- people wanting to revisit/relive the heady days of the LOTR movies
- current users of the site
- future historians covering web culture
- newbies / people who're looking for a community they can be a part of and people they can identify with
- media, or scholars or students stop by looking for input
- people researching the site or...
- people researching the movies' histories
- filmmakers (i.e. Peter/GdT) also come here for research/information
