    The Hunt for Gollum (LOTR fan film)

    I hadn't heard about this until today... a LOTR fan-made short film detailing Aragorn's search for Gollum. The trailer looks pretty decent for a free film I'm sure a lot of peeps here would be interested in this one (you ring-heads know who you are):

    I'll give it a watch myself later today maybe.

    The film is stunning for being fan-made. It reminds me of the quality of that April Fools Zelda movie trailer last year except this wasn't a troll in the end!

    I watched this last night, it was really good. I thought there would either be good effects and bad acting or bad effects and bad acting but I was wrong. I guess it helps that Jackson's style is fairly simple but it looks pretty close to the originals as well. I hope there are more.

    Watched it and was just amazed. awesome movie! extremely well done

    I not a big fan of the soundtrack though, specially in the fighting scenes. But the original soundtrack set a very high standard, so maybe im just used to than

    def worth watching

    (n why didnt that thread show up when I searched it. could have saved the trouble making another thread about it )

    Im kinda surprised there isnt more about this on here too, especially as a few guys who visit ca.org were involved with the production. It was a fun project to work on, everyone had a blast, and we were all really pleased with the final result
    There is another LOTR fan film in production at the moment too called Born of Hope. A lot of the same team are working on that too, but BoH is rortunate enough to have a much higher budget. I have seen all of the early vfx tests for BoH, and if you liked The Hunt For Gollum then i promise you wont be disappointed!
