Don't know why it's taking so long :/ Last one was released like 4 hours after the announcement.
Finally... [url]https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10150720773691807&set=vb.141884481557&type=2&theater[/url] With each production video I just get more and more hyped. I can't wait.

The first picture is from post-production back in late 2010/early 2011. Edit: Ugh, took me over 30 minutes to buffer the video in HD, then I press fullscreen and my browser freeze, resulting in having to buffer over again >:(

hahahaha the part with bombur in the barrel!
Didn't know they used a mask for Bilbo, haven't been following the movie to closely so thought the actor looked like that.
fat jackson = win he was fat when he raped the academy awards with ROTK, so we're in a good direction
[QUOTE=Forss;34948693]Didn't know they used a mask for Bilbo, haven't been following the movie to closely so thought the actor looked like that.[/QUOTE] That's just his scale double. As in when they're far out in the wilderness doing helicopter shots there's no point in bringing the actors for only to see their backs from a distance. Thus they dress up people with the same physical builds as the actors, which saves time and is much cheaper.
Jackson was thinner when they're filming for Part 2 at the VERY start of that video. All the location running about did him some good.
I just fucking love that he uses real locations for his movies instead of 100% green screen.
not to say that there isn't a shitload of greenscreen in his movies :v:
[QUOTE=thrawn2787;35016313]not to say that there isn't a shitload of greenscreen in his movies :v:[/QUOTE] I was surprised to see that the background in that Gollum LotR scene was bluescreened.
[QUOTE=Joazzz;35017737]I was surprised to see that the background in that Gollum LotR scene was bluescreened.[/QUOTE] You have no idea just how much is Greenscreened. All of Pelenor fields is virtual say for grass 5 meters ahead of the cam. Same for all of the effect shots really.
[QUOTE=Joazzz;35017737]I was surprised to see that the background in that Gollum LotR scene was bluescreened.[/QUOTE] pretty much all of mirkwood and trollshaw will be green screen. there is a lot of location shooting but there's probably just as much green screen / studio stuff
Most of Trollshaw was filmed on location. Even the cave.
[QUOTE=mark6789;35014094]I just fucking love that he uses real locations for his movies instead of 100% green screen.[/QUOTE] I'm pretty sure that's mostly because hes got a HUGE budget, shooting in real locations is much more expansive than just shooting in a studio.
[QUOTE=Kero_;35021756]I'm pretty sure that's mostly because hes got a HUGE budget, shooting in real locations is much more expansive than just shooting in a studio.[/QUOTE] But with the bigger budget he could of made the movie even longer in all CGI but he chose real places instead.
[QUOTE=mark6789;35024277]But with the bigger budget he could of made the movie even longer in all CGI but he chose real places instead.[/QUOTE] ..and if he didn't have such a big budget he would have used only studio shooting, so my point here is that he uses real locations mostly because he can afford it, and not because of some sort of an artistic choice.
Somehow even the CGI in these movies looks better than almost anything else, I mean compare the Helm's Deep Battle in The Two Towers to the climactic battle in Attack of the Clones - the latter looks plastic and fake as hell, the former is utterly convincing. To say nothing of Gollum, still the most effective CGI character I've ever seen, despite the films being ten years old.
The CGI in the Fellowship of the Ring is amazing even today.
I would kill to work on that set.
[QUOTE=booster;35024785]The CGI in the Fellowship of the Ring is amazing even today.[/QUOTE] Well. The watcher's obvious CGI due to the bad water and the troll has some unlucky shading. The balrog is a master piece and the other two movies don't really have any give-aways say from low-res textures in the skies that the cam pans up to at the end of TTT. This is only visible on the Blu-Ray ed. though and i've only noticed it once. Really. Those effects are good when considering ho butt-ugly other huge films were at the time.

I wonder if Smaug will have a British accent. Considering the voice actor is Benedict Cumberpatch
[QUOTE=Carne;35020828]Most of Trollshaw was filmed on location.

Ya, the nightscene with the trolls was in the studio, but one of the set reports show the forest they used for the daytime scenes. They had built a fake cave but Jackson didn't like it so they found a real one instead.
Really looking forward to this film. Also, I'm sure Benedict Cumberbatch is a shoo-in for the Oscar for Most British Name Ever.
Holy shit he is getting so fat. I still love him.
