Not sure why I’m just now finding this, except that the Web is a large place.
Award winning unofficial prequel to The Lord of the Rings dramatising Aragorn & Gandalf’s long search for Gollum. This 40 minute film, made by fans for fans is based on the appendices of LOTR and was painstakingly shot on a low budget as a homage to Peter Jackson’s trilogy and the writing of J.R.R. Tolkien.
Costing less than $5,000 to make, with a team of volunteers, Independent Online Cinema are proud to have brought Middle-earth to the screen once more. We hope you enjoy The Hunt For Gollum as much as we enjoyed making it.
This short film is not only a winner in the fanfilm department, it actually attempts to explain what Peter Jackson left out of the original story. The results are simply amazing.
