The Hunt For Gollum (Lord of the Rings Fan Film)
The Hunt For Gollum is an unofficial not for profit short film by a group of enthusiast filmmakers. Made by indie director Chris Bouchard, and he has recruited an immensely talented group of effects wizards, sculptors and artists (trailers can be deceiving, as e all know but if they are any indication, it looks good!). The independant movie is being produced for £3000 -- but it looks professional.
The script is adapted from elements of the appendices of The Lord of the Rings. The story follows the Heir of Isildur; the "greatest huntsman and traveller in Middle Earth" as he sets out to find the creature Gollum. The creature must be found to discover the truth about the Ring, and to protect the future Ringbearer.
The movie will be released FOR FREE on May 3, 2009 as a download at http://www.hunt4gollum.com
