    The Hunt for Gollum

    http://www.thehuntforgollum.com/

    A bunch of Lord of the Rings fans got together to make a prequel for the movies.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnMHgwG9aAo]YouTube - THE HUNT FOR GOLLUM - FULL TRAILER 1[/ame]

    It looks pretty good for a fan film. It'll be available for free on their website on Sunday at (I think) 11am in Iowa.

    I don't ever want to meet anyone in any way associated with this project.

    Filming this is probably the only time they got out of their parent's basements.

    Not intended at you but just in general. This type of comment being posted online stinks of irony.

    This thing is way beyond a couple kids fooling around with a camera in the backyard some Saturday. I can only imagine how many man-hours went into pre- and post-production. Probably into the thousands, and all of it for free. I'm guessing the people who worked on this thing (besides being LOTR fans) are semi-pro film types who would love a giant publicity wave if this film is a hit.

    Which is sort of my point, I guess. There is so much work in this thing, that if they are expecting no monetary compensation, it's a fairly epic case of LARPing...

    If it's any consolation, I really have no desire to meet anyone from CF in person either :D
