Many, many thanks for taking the time out from your crazy schedule to stop in here and reassure us that all is well. Things were seriously starting to get squirrely around here, and yours was the voice I was waiting and hoping for.
With Peter seemingly as "semi-official spokesman" for TH in the past few days, I didn't think you would take the time to come on here and talk to us...I consider it "above and beyond the call of duty", SIr
So glad to know that there is no studo strife (yes, I was one of those worrying about this), and learning that they reacted with "great delight" to the script for Film 1 has filled me with same, and left a HUGE smile on my face I'll carry around the rest of the weekend...
Smaug...ani tests....Dwarven gear...ah, YESSSS. Warms the cockles of my heart, it does!
And I just want to close with this: considering James Cameron's useage of Peter's "Render Farm" computer to create the apparent wonder that is Pandora (Almas, you lucky thing, getting to go to an early screening? I go next Saturday), ...you will have your work cut out for Smaug. But I have no doubt, that come 3 yrs from now, Mr. Cameron may have to look to his laurels...Smaug, I hope, will put the Nav'i in the dust.
(I wish you could share your reaction to "Avatar" here with us, if you get around to seeing it, but you will probably be too busy to post...but that's OK...but seeing as a lot of us are huge Cameron fans to begin with, it would be great to know).
Take care and I echo everyone else: enjoy your Holidays, take some time out to relax if possible, and God bless.
You are a true gentleman, Sir!
