The Hunt for Gollum is at its most basic level a fan made movie based on the Lord of the Rings books. However the level of writing, acting and general production quality of this work is second to none.
As some what of an internet geek I have seen many independent/Fan Movies and this one is by far the best one I have ever seen.
It is the story of Strider hunting Gollum before the first book really gets going. At this point I can tell you little about the people involved but believe me after seeing the movie I will be looking into the people a lot more and if all goes well get some one on One True Cast.
I really can not stress enough how superb this movie is, granted the 3D effects lack the polish of a Hollywood production but in terms of story and direction is at least as good as its more mainstream cousin.
This movie should not be missed and I will write more about the production organisation and people involved within a few days when I a better informed.
For now though I stress that you should visit the site and take the time to watch the HD version as soon as possible!
