Movie: The Hunt for Gollum
While I was poking around the internet, I stumbled across these posts over at Speculative Horizons, about an independent, non-profit film, "The Hunt for Gollum."
Intended fan-fic as a prequel to the LOTR movies, it was apparently made with a L3000 budget.
I won't give it a proper review, as it's not a commercial enterprise. It's an interesting bit of storytelling, acting and editing. If you're a fan of Tolkien's trilogy, I think you'll enjoy it.
Here, you can watch the trailers or watch the whole 40 minute flick.
I do have to offer kudos to the folks who put it together. Some nice ideas and clever edits made for a well produced piece, all things considered.
