Showcase: The Hunt For Gollum

May 11, 2009

As I’m sure many of you have heard over the past week, The Hunt For Gollum premiered on the 3rd of this month, basically blowing away most fanfilms of the past in one swell blow. This is the essence of a fanfilm: a movie based on another movie (series), made by fans for the fans with no financial benefits attached to the completion of the film (apart from the potential for being recognized and careers begun, etc.).

However, what is of note is the quality of this project, the in-depth material on their website (which is actually becoming characteristic of this director‘s projects, who is also helming the long-in-progress Human Residue), and the obvious dedication that went into the project from the acting, the costumes, the CG (which is impressive, they whipped Terragen 2 into shape and did some sweet-ass work for this project), even their Gollum wasn’t disappointing. Yes, an independent project pulled off a version of Gollum this soon after the multi-million-dollar studio-backed features won Oscars for theirs. Why don’t you go and check it out? The trailer’s below, along with a link to the full film.
