The Hunt For Gollum
The Hunt For Gollum is one of the best fan films I've ever seen. It's well-shot, well-acted, faithful to the source material, and fairly innovative. How do you solve the problem of a featured character who exists on film only as the result of expensive motion capture technology? Easy; stick him in a burlap sack for 90% of his screen time. It's 38 minutes long, but definitely worth the time, so go watch it.
