Filming took place in North Wales, Epping Forest, and Hampstead Heath. The film was shot in high definition video, with a budget - amazing as it might seem - of GBP£3,000 (USD$5,000). The production is completely unofficial and unauthorized, though Bouchard said he had "reached an understanding" with Tolkien Enterprises in 2009.
The Hunt for Gollum debuted at the Sci-Fi-London film festival and on the Internet, free to view, on 3 May 2009. By October 20 in the same year, it had been viewed by 5 million people, and has since been viewed over 10 million times.
If you have not yet seen it, the writer of this blog would say in amazement, "Why not? It's a short movie that all lovers of Tolkien's sub-creation should see" Click here ---> http://www.thehuntforgollum.com/
