The Hunt For Gollum

9 05 2009

Though I’ve been swamped for the last few weeks and have neglected my posting duties, I’ve decided to break the silence for this…

It’s been out for a few days now, but if you haven’t invested some of your life to watching The Hunt For Gollum, you’re missing out on what has to be the best fan film ever made.  (No hate mail about how awesome Troops was, ‘k?)  Reportedly costing only $5000, this film looks authentic and the music is as professional as you’ll find in any big-budget flick.  They could’ve written a little more dialogue for my taste, but the visuals are intended to make up for it.  The whole 40-minute movie is available freely from, but you can check out the trailer below.  You’ll notice the little button for HQ.  I would recommend clicking it if you have the bandwidth.

If what thy say about the budget is true, then these guys are going to be making a lot more movies. That was really incredible.

The Gollum fan film is getting a ton of coverage all over the net, and I’m not surprised as I’ve been writing about its production progress on my daily fan film blog, for months. For what it’s worth, if you want to find out more about fan films in general, I wrote the first book about the history and future of ’em, Homemade Hollywood, which just came out.
