The Hunt for Gollum is unique. The movie runs 35 minutes in length and has well-choreographed swordfights, superb-looking Orcs as well as a musical score and acting that are top notch.
So what’s the big deal?
The Hunt for Gollum is a “fan-made movie” that was shot in three days back in September of 2007 with a budget of around $4,500. Right now, you can watch it for free.
The Hunt For Gollum is an unofficial not for profit short film by a group of enthusiast filmmakers. As a Lord of the Rings Fan Film, we are not affiliated with the Tolkien Estate or New Line Cinema and are producing this project as an entirely non commercial film. As with other fan films we are making this purely for the enjoyment of the material and the experience of making a high quality low budget film.
Production began in early 2007 when writer-director Chris Bouchard started adapting the script from the Appendices of The Lord of the Rings. Since then, the first three days of filming were completed in September 2007 on location in N Wales.
As a non-profit production, the entire film will be released online for FREE download only on the internet on www.hunt4gollum.com
The movie is truly an awesome achievement. You can view it online for free here.
