The Hunt For Gollum

Watch this absolutely phenomenal piece of cinematography, and you, like me, will be blown away! It tells a simple yet interesting tale of a ranger (Aragorn) and a wizard (Gandalf) and their search for a wretched, pathetic little creature named Gollum.

But the most impressive feature are the trees and forests found in this stunning short film. There are sweeping aerial shots of wide expanses of woodland, beautiful scenes of the barren understory of ancient pine, oak, and cedar forests, close up and detail shots of mossy tree trunks and gnarled old trees, and scenes of airy green glades surrounded by tall specimen trees, the list is virtually endless!

Oh, and also some spectacular sword battles with nasty orcs, under the deepening shadow of an old forest, of course! Click the box with four diagonal arrows to view in full screen, recommended.
