Like most fantasy nuts, I love the Lord of the Rings movies. I’ve watched the extended versions several times and they never get old.
But now that the film adaptation of the Hobbit has been announced (I’m thrilled about the Jackson-del Toro collaboration), I’m itching to get back into the visual world of Middle Earth. But what can a fan do right now to tide themselves over until that first Hobbit film hits theaters?
Well for this group of fans – it was a simple answer – make your own film!
And that’s what The Hunt For Gollum is, a 40 minute short film “made by fans for fans”. Sounds good to me.
Check out the trailers…
The entire film was released to the world via the internets a few weeks ago, and I must say I was very impressed by it. Very well done, especially the make-up and costume designs. I could go on, but I’ll halt there.
Instead – take a look yourself!
