The Hunt For Gollum

At 4.00pm GMT on the 3rd of May (2.00am 4th of May Brisbane Australia time) the fan-film The Hunt For Gollum was released for free viewing on the Internet. I've been waiting for this Lord of the Rings-inspired film to be released for some time so the first thing I did when I awoke this morning was head to the web site and watch it.

And I was not disappointed. For an unofficial, not-for-profit, short film by a group of enthusiast filmmakers The Hunt For Gollum is very well done indeed. The film is 40 minutes long and details Aragorn's search to capture Gollum to learn more about the ring that was at that time in Frodo's possession in The Shire.

I was very impressed with all facets of the movie including the acting, music, wardrobe, special effects and locations. It's obvious that a lot of love and passion for Tolkien's work has been put into this film. If you want to see it then head over to The Hunt For Gollum website.
