****FOTR EE APPENDICES DISCUSSION: Visual Effects: Miniatures: Galleries**** Can't Post

Put in Disk 4 of FOTR EE. Choose Visual Effects, at the next menu, choose Miniatures, then on the next menu, choose Galleries.

Today we look at the factory in Hobbiton and Rivendell.

We didnít get to see much of the factory in Hobbiton in the movie; but I did get to see the model at the exhibit in Indianapolis, Indiana, in October of 2005.



I loved a comment by John Howe in another segment of the Appendices where he says he was asked if the factory was "so big." He gave a confused "yeah,"having no idea how big it was supposed to be. One gathers that he was quite impressed when he finally saw the finished model.




I hope everyone can see the screen cap. I lightened it as much as I felt I could. This is the view that Frodo gets in Galadrielís mirror.

Now we come to my favorite model Ė Rivendell. If I didnít live in a cold climate (also heavy in biting bugs in the summer), I would love to build my house open to the trees like that.



You certainly donít get a sense of how small the buildings are when you see them in the movie, but people working around them really emphasizes the scale. I love the roofs. There are old barns around here with patterns similar to the Rivendell roofs. I enjoy coming around a hill and seeing one.



The Rivendell in the movies isnít what I expected from reading the books, but I love it!

Saturday we will take a look at the last two models, Orthanc and Moria.
