Watch: Fourth Fantastic 'The Hobbit' Video Blog from Peter Jackson
They're back! "Shooting The Hobbit in 3D is a dream come true." This video blog, the fourth one from Peter Jackson (via his Facebook) for The Hobbit, focuses mainly on 3D, exploring not only the technical details behind it all, but how/why and what it will all look like in the end. It's fascinating, exciting, and just amazing to watch, I'm still blown away by the fact that we get to watch 10 minute behind-the-scenes videos a year out for these movies. This also confirms my expectations that The Hobbit should be as much of a technological/visual leap as the original Lord of the Rings movies were; I cannot wait. Another must watch!
Watch the fourth video blog for The Hobbit below, and head to his Facebook page to see it in HD:
In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit… The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson in two separate parts, is set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The Hobbit films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, will be shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. The Hobbit follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The first part of The Hobbit hits theaters December 2012.
