    "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.

    I caught this just yesterday. This was extremely well done. I hope these guys find the funding to do more of these.

    I saw the trailer last weekend, but haven't seen the film yet.

    Interesting article at the Beeb about the making of it.

    nice article

    With a budget of £3,000, the film cost somewhat less than Peter Jackson's trilogy
    I somehow heard it before, but now I got it right there. that makes it even more unbelievable most projects like that dont work out even half as good as this one! ah, Im just amazed

    my only point of critique would be the soundtrack, specially in the fighting scenes. they are not thaaat good, but the standards were set pretty high by the LOTR trilogy I guess

    [EDIT] there is a new film in production yay http://independentonlinecinema.com/

    Yeah, this was posted in the Entertainment and Media subforum.

    Just undeniable proof a truckload of 1000 dollar bills doesn't necessarily make a good film as it's very possible to make one with much less. Dragonball: Evolution with its 100 million dollar budget... Argh.

    EDIT: Clarification.

    Damn! The cinematography is better than 80% of "real" films! Actually, it's entirely fantastic except for one thing... the beards. How could they afford the costumes and equipment, props, etc but yet they couldn't afford quality fake beards or at least GROW THEM THEMSELVES. Seriously... why are the beards all so ridiculously fake?
