The “Lord of the Ring” enjoys a great following and it may have even increased after the release of the movie trilogy (2001-2003). Recently, on May 3, 2009, the fan movie “The Hunt for Gollum” was released to the world on the Internet. A tweet from Michael Wesch alerted me to this movie.

It is amazing to see that a 40-minute movie can be made with a small crew, a budget of just about 3,000 £, and a lot of enthusiam, dedication, and free hours to contribute. You do not learn about that in the movie, but in the Making of for which I am a total sucker.

This will not be the only fan movie about material from “Lord of the Ring” as the link to “Born of Hope”, a fan movie that is scheduled to be released in fall 2009, indicates.
