This was a release disaster.

Both sources for the movie failed.
ie.
www.thehuntforgollum.com
http://www.dailymotion.com/huntforgollum

Release disaster:
--> Only available in flash.
--> And no bittorrents available.

I am forced to download via non-offical bittorrent and then convert the stupid flash file to XVid so I can watch it!

Perhaps there will be other formats available later. But that doesn't help the release now does it?

Still keen to see this. So i will persevere.

Hi Chris. Maybe you can put a link to Filmaffinity in the website or in Dailymotion's channel. Is a website like IMDB, so maybe the people want to rate the movie and recommend it to other friends. Link: http://www.filmaffinity.com/en/film258572.html

I'm somewhat curious about who made this film, what their resources where etc - the "somewhat" means I don't have the time investment handy to read reams of pages to get this info, so is there are a fairly brief compilation of "who,what,where" someplace? For instance I see on the main page there was use of steadycam, that doesn't sound like a fan film to me, that sounds professional.

Hi Stellar

The 'steadicam' was a home-made style stabiliser that cost about £200. We cut every corner there is.

Oz - Other viewing links will become available next week so hopefully that will help!

I must admit I wasnt surprised by the release date "disasters" but am surprised by the content once getting to view the movie! Great job! I admire your committment to the Tolkien style and the original movie style as well. Thank you to everyone involved!

The movie is good.
Actually, It's the best fan film I have seen so far. (Of all geners)
Dialog in the audio was a bit quiet at times though.
Good work indeed.

Very impressive adaption of Tolkien's The Hunt for Gollum. The site worked well, with smooth download. I was blown away by the atmosphere, casting and effects which were very reminiscent of Peter Jackson's movies. Congratulations.

This is a worthy addition to the Lord of the Rings trilogy! As I stumbled across it by happenstance I was excited, impressed, and enthralled by the movie. A terrific effort, but naturally I have one complaint: it's too short!

I was thoroughly engrossed in it and wanted more, more, more!

Thanks for a great film.
