I remember in 3rd grade sitting down and watching the Hobbit by Rankin/Bass. I fell in love with not just the story and art, but with something deeper awakening inside me. I knew from that moment forward which direction I wanted to take with my life. This is my work in progress of turning the Rankin/Bass version of Gollum into 3d. I love the Weta version of Gollum, but feel there is something more sinister about the Rankin/Bass version.
