4 days to go...


On 3rd of May The Hunt For Gollum will be live and online for FREE streaming at
www.thehuntforgollum.com

Release Time:
Our awesome web-guy David Rendo will be putting the film online at 4pm (GMT) on our site - just as we sit down to watch it at the public premiere at SCI-FI-LONDON.

We'll also put out our documentary, some cool clips, the soundtrack and info on our next project...

So - how does it feel? Exciting - relieving - but I'm most looking forward to celebrating with all the talented people I've met on this journey when we have our premiere and party. A year ago we were on location filming an Orc battle, and a year before that I was writing out the script. So it's been a pretty intense time (can't count how many all night editing sessions!) and I for one am looking forward to a little break before I start the next project... which may (I can reveal) be something related to the concept of Human Residue
It will be an original feature film which we're hoping to do with the same kick-ass team, but this time we'll be looking for industry funding to get it off the ground as a low budget feature. We'll see where that goes...

Anyway after a long journey and an amazing experience of film-making, I can release my first real film to the world... The Hunt For Gollum. And take cover...! The main thing - it was a hell of a ride - let's see what we can do next...

I am not a literary expert, but I always thought that JRRT paid an homage to Dickens by using similar language to describe the physical characteristics and mannerisms of Gollum that Dickens used to describe his character Uriah Heep in David Copperfield. I hope others will be generous in their response to your homage to JRRT and Jackson's work.

I'm sure you guys have plenty of mirrors already for hosting the video, but if you need another on high quality bandwidth in the US, I have a few servers you can use.

Chris,
congratulations on this major accomplishment. I am looking forward to the movie, but the mere fact that you were able to pull this off is a sign of your talent. I am sure your movie is much better than most of the crap from Hollywood.
I am sure we will hear more about you.
What you have done is fantastic.

If anyone thinks this film has been made without the tacit approval of the various people who own the rights they are fools. This wonderful project is being closely watched to gauge future projects and distribution methods.
