The Hunt for Gollum

For all you Lord of the Ring fans, an independent film crew (Independent Online Cinema) made a 35 minute short-film that will be sure to please Tolkien lovers. Based on parts of The Lord of the Rings, it tells of when Aragorn tracked down Gollum between The Hobbit & The Fellowship of the Ring.

The most amazing thing is that this was produced for less than $5,000. The actors went unpaid, they funded the 5K from their own pockets, and they used personal digital cameras. There are, of course, some graphic scenes of violence--so viewer discretion is advised.
