The Hobbit Video Blog

"Suddenly, you realize, that being outdoors in Middle Earth can be a difficult business." Hooray, another blog! Peter Jackson has just released the sixth video blog for The Hobbit on Facebook today, and it's a follow-up to the fifth one in December, which focused on their on location shooting around beautiful New Zealand. This one is the "continued location adventures", showing again just how much goes into making an epic like this, including how much fun it is to make movies. They cover so much and it's so entertaining, from catering to second unit to Warg jokes from Dwarves, I love these videos even more every time. Enjoy!

Watch the sixth 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 technology. 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: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters in 3D on December 14, 2012.

I wish more films would do video blogs. I think it's a great way to create buzz. Now, I'm going to event a time machine so I can watch both films. Should only take me about 75 years to do it. Wait, that math doesn't add up...
