Celebriel sends a brief report on an activity-packed Saturday at Creation Entertainment’s third annual One Ring Celebration taking place this weekend at the Burbank Marriott. Look for detailed session reports in a day or so.

Were you at the One Ring Celebration Saturday, or did you miss Andy Serkis, David Wenham, Billy Boyd, his band Beecake, Doug Adams, Cliff Broadway and Carlene Cordova, the Sideshow team, and Beecake concert visitor Sala Baker?

This will be brief since it’s already almost 5AM and I have been editing pictures for a few hours now plus dealing with losing an hour’s sleep because of the time change.

A short list of Saturday’s highlights –details to follow, I promise!

-Billy Boyd returns to ORC to entertain fans and introduce his band Beecake

-David Wenham makes his first ORC appearance and talks both LOTR and his new film 300.

-Doug Adams continues his discussion of the themes of Howard Shore’s music for The Lord of the Rings. Look for the 4CD set, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King – The Complete Recordings, around November, followed soon after by Doug’s book, The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films.

-Beecake rocks the house for nearly two hours

-Sideshow Collectibles makes two presentations on the design and manufacture of their costumed figures and give away numerous copies of their Lord of the Rings Battle Helm of Eowyn.

-Cliff Broadway and Carlene Cordova update what’s new with Stormcrow Entertainment and their other Hollywood projects.

-Andy Serkis joins the dessert party, just off his plane from London. He spends a few minutes at every table greeting fans.

-Sala Baker drops by for the Beecake concert.
