Three hobbits and a filmmaker/documentarian are embarking on a trip to the mysterious New Zealand in February. Our goal is to get these 3 humble and compelling college students onto Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' film set as extras. (A goal they have been working towards and saving up for, for a long time)

While they are there, they will be with fellow LOTR lovers and fans and making their way onto your computer screens, television screens and fingers crossed for the big screen. We have been overwhelmed with the amount of love and interest shown from so many people out in cyberspace and look forward to meeting some of you in NZ. Funds raised will help us with equipment, editing, submissions to film festivals and travel expenses for the upcoming documentary. 

Meet the hobbits here: http://roadtotheshire.com

Please look inside for your inner nerdy Lord-of-the-Rings-loving self and share the kickstarter link and your pennies. Thank you! We love you very, very much!

In New Zealand during February, you'll be able to view their vlogs on this channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/roadtotheshire
