The Desolation of Smaug Video Blog

"Anddd, roll!" He's back! With the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug just around the corner, Peter Jackson has debuted the latest production video blog, #13, for the cinematic trilogy. This follows the 12th video blog which arrived back in November, showing the process behind shooting pick-up scenes. This time around we find out why Peter says shooting parts of The Hobbit is "just like I used to do in the old days, at home, on Super 8 camera," and explore more of the cast and crew putting finishing touches on The Desolation of Smaug. We also meet Stephen Fry as the Master of Laketown, plus plenty of others.

Here's Production Video #13 for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug from YouTube:

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, 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 films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of 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 Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug lands in theaters in 3D & 48FPS on December 13th.
