We're certainly not kidding when we say that this is an extensive look inside production of 'The Hobbit.' Why? Because the video is nearly fifteen minutes long. But if you're a 'Lord of the Rings' fan, a 'Hobbit' fan or just a fantasy fan in general, you'll want to see this in-depth how things work on set. It's not just Peter Jackson putting everything together on his own. It takes a marvelous and talented team in order to do so.
Today at CinemaCon, Warner Bros. and Peter Jackson premiered 10 minutes of footage from 'The Hobbit,' shown in the new 48 frames-per-second (fps) 3D method of filmmaking, a technique Jackson and friend James Cameron have championed as the next generation of moviegoing.
Today's reactions to the 48fps have been vocal and varied, from those focusing on the footage of 'The Hobbit' itself, to others complaining about the look of 48fps, which doubles the frame rate of the industry standard 24fps.
Color many people green with envy. For the lucky group of people who are out in Las Vegas right now attending this year's CinemaCon (which is basically an industry equivalent of Comic-Con) 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' director Peter Jackson is treating the them to some special new footage. It shouldn't be hard to guess what he's going to be showing them.
