An explanation for difference in style [In reply to] Can't Post

It's easy to forget that these movies were not, in fact, all shot at once.

They did multiple weeks of pick-up shooting every year, once Pete was in the editing room and realized that they needed another scene, or a better take, or more shots of something. They talk about it in the appendices. One example that comes to my head is, in the original shoot in 1999-2000, when Frodo tells Same to "go home" he's almost shouting and visibly psychotic. When they went to edit in early 2003, Pete realized this just didn't feel right, and they reshot the scene with a colder, calmer, Frodo.

I only ever noticed the difference in style this past year, when me and my buddies watched the Tolkien Twelve. Seeing all the movies back to back, you can definitely see the style of camerawork change. Not to mention the color shifts from green-gold throughout the trilogy.

On a related note, after it being pointed out on these forums, I now notice the green tint to the FotR EE Bluray. And now I can't STOP seeing it Pirate hahaha but even if you watch the dvd's there is a slight green, gritty tent to the movie (in some scenes more than others) as opposed to a regular, natural white balance. (Again, if you don't believe me, watch the appendices, there's footage of the colorists doing their work. it's really cool stuff if you're into photography/cinematography!)
