The Hunt For Gollum

Just when you thought I couldn't out geek myself. Yesterdays BJORK post may have fallen on deaf ears, but I know Dr. D will crawl out of the woodwork for this one.

Here is the deal. Fanboys and girls have pulled together to direct a short film that follows the Heir of Isildur; the “greatest huntsman and traveler in Middle Earth” as he sets out to find the creature Gollum. Dr. D, I expect a full explanation in the comments section!

THE HUNT FOR GOLLUM - FULL Trailer 1 from Independent Online Cinema on Vimeo.

The 38 minute film dropped yesterday. Watch it here. Roomie, I promise no more posts involving dragons or trolls for at least a month.

You the man. I just geeked so hard. I have dozens of more "important" priorities, but they all just got pushed aside for 38 minutes.

Fell in love with another Arwen, vowed to hone my sword fighting skills, and am starting to figure out where I'll have the Middle-earth map tattoed on my body.

Favorite scenes: dueling pipe smoking with Gandalf, then end scene with Gollum in cell - allusions to Hobbit riddle match. Love that Aragorn carries Gollum in a burlap sack!

Do you think we could organize an APT field trip to visit these amateur film makers? Dude, so righteous. Not-for-profit LOTR dudes? Where do I sign up.

I vote this "Live from APT's Post of the Year" hands down. Sorry Roomie, the geeks are taking over...

I am glad you are happy!

Celts could have used Aragorn last night in the first half.
