One of the many things I love about director Peter Jackson is his willing us to bring us behind the scenes of his films. Offering video diaries, documentaries, featurettes, interviews… etc. He offers up every facet of the filmmaking process. As a viewer, I respect the final product more when I realize the amount of work that went into it. Ultimately, it’s amazing watching a concept evolve into reality; seeing nothing turn into something.
Peter Jackson has released his 12th production video blog for his Hobbit trilogy. This one focuses on the pick-up shots and shows off some fun behind the scenes footage.
Man, this production looked hella fun. Gandalf: “He has built an army and then … oh fuck no.” Seeing Gandalf swear… best thing ever.
