The Hunt for Gollum

Just watched a very very short film online at http://www.dailymotion.com/us/video/x93zji_the-hunt-for-gollum-hd-version_shortfilms or http://www.thehuntforgollum.com ( the latter link was Slashdotted when I tried earlier today ).

The makers have neatly filled in a gap between The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring, on an extremely tight budget of £3,000 ( somewhat less than the coffee budget for a normal Hollywood production ).

If you're into LoTR, then take a moment ( or 40 minutes, to be precise ) to check this out. It's definitely worth a watch, both as a tribute to JRR Tolkien and to the most excellent job that Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema did with the trilogy of movies a few years back.

Out of 10, I'd go up to 11 ....
