Realise Minas Tirith is a $3 Billion Indiegogo project to build, for real, at full scale, the city of Minas Tirith from Lord of the Rings in southern England. They realize this is "a light-hearted venture with virtually no chance of succeeding" but they've put some thought into it.
- In order to realise this amazing dream, we have calculcated our required budget to be in the region of £1.85bn. The vast majority of this expense will cover building costs - £15m for land, £188m for labour and £1.4bn for material. The remainder of the money will be invested in maintenance and public services until the year 2053.
- We aim to commence work on Minas Tirith by the end of 2016, and complete the project by the end of 2023.
