Tolkien Gateway


Bogans is a 26-minute fan film, written by Peter Tait. It was released on DVD in 2003.

[edit] Plot

Three "Bogans", Greg, Ray and Luke, travel across New Zealand to meet Peter Jackson. Their goal: be cast as an extra in The Lord of the Rings.

In a strange turn of fate, two of the actors actually ended up in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King: Ian Hughes played Irolas, and Peter Tait was Shagrat.
