    The Hunt for Gollum





    The Hunt for Gollum


    The script is adapted from elements of the appendices of The Lord of the Rings. The story follows the Heir of Isildur; the "greatest huntsman and traveller in Middle Earth" as he sets out to find the creature Gollum. The creature must be found to discover the truth about the Ring, and to protect the future Ringbearer.

    About

As a Lord of the Rings Fan Film, we are not affiliated with the Tolkien Estate or New Line Cinema and are producing this project as an entirely non commercial film. As with other fan films we are making this purely for the enjoyment of the material and the experience of making a high quality low budget film.

    So Far...
    Production began in early 2007 when writer-director Chris Bouchard started adapting the script from the Appendices of The Lord of the Rings. Since then, the first three days of filming were completed in September 2007 on location in N Wales.

    Free Distribution
    As a non-profit production, the entire film will be released online for FREE download only on the internet on www.hunt4gollum.com

    Interesting indeed, and I like the fact that it seems to be a low budget non profit film. I'll get it as soon it's available for download.

    Very well done movie. Runtime is only 32 minutes though. And they could have found a prettier Arwen.

    Otherwise perfect.

    I was totally shocked by the quality of the trailers. I've read the Lord of the Rings numerous times so I'm pretty familiar with the background to the story that they have adapted for this film. Interesting though the story is, I didn't expect a fan produced film to be able to do justice to the rich world created by Tolkien. From the trailers posted here though, everything looks great. The lighting and scenery look the part and the acting and scripting don't appear amateur at all. Thanks for posting this Hrodnand, I'll look forward to the finished project.

    I was wondering about that myself, perhaps it's HQ then.

    Agreed.



    Here is how the film setting fits into the Lord of the Rings time line. Actually, it takes place during the course of Fellowship of the Ring. Be forewarned. *Possible spoilers.*








    Fellowship of the Ring begins with Bilbo's birthday in 3001. Bilbo disappears via The Ring of Power at his 111th birthday party and relocates to Rivendell. Seventeen years later is when our story begins, that is, the year 3018 of the Third Age. The story begins with Gandalf sending out Aragorn to hunt Gollum. When Gollum is finally captured by Aragorn and brought to Mirkwood, Gandalf interrogates Gollum and learns that Sauron's orcs have captured Gollum already; Sauron knows that Gollum once had the ring and lost it to "Baggins" in the "Shire". Of course, Sauron did not know where the Shire was believing it to be among the Gladden Fields along the Anduin River [where Gollum's people, the Stoorish hobbits originated]. Gollum is kept captive by the Elves so he will not make any further trouble. This is where our story ends. In order to protect the ring, the ringbearer Frodo Baggins is instructed to leave The Shire and make his way to Rivendell by first stopping at Bree. Aragorn meets Frodo and his companions in Bree. And we are familiar with the rest of Fellowship of the Ring.
