Frame by Frame: Production Video Number 2 Can't Post

With Peter Jackson's release of the second production video from The Hobbit on Facebook, we found ourselves with a lot of new visuals from the upcoming films. Among the highlights are Hugo Weaving as Elrond, a peek at Legolas's costuming, Goblin-town and more! We are taking a look at each picture individually and have offered our comments and suggestions. Like you, we are purely speculating! Each pic has a number associated with it, and you can click on it for the super high res version. We'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions - just comment on this post, on Facebook and in our Forums! Reference the number when you comment, as we plan on updating this post with your thoughts as well. Oh yea, there be SPOILERS ahead!

Click on the header links to see the full-screen version.

1. Image 01 - Wrap of Filming



Shooting wraps on the first 54 days of filming. Peter Jackson with the first unit on the left, in what looks to be a set for Goblintown. Andy Serkis with the second unit on the right, also on a set that looks like Goblin-town.

2. Image 02 - Wrap of Filming



Just another look at the suspected Goblin-town sets. The set design implies evil - pointy objects, skulls, some kind of caged animal.

3. Image 03 - Andy on Goblin-town Set?



Larger view of the suspected Goblin-town set. Second unit directory Andy Serkis announcing the wrap of the first phase of filming.

4. Image 04 - Peter at Bilbo's Desk in Bag End



A wonderful shot of Peter Jackson at Bilbo's desk in Bag End, Hobbiton. Check out the high res for all the little details!

5. Image 05 - Peter and Andy at Bilbo's Desk in Bag End



Andy joins Peter in the Bag End set. Love the hair-do and beard Andy!

6. Image 06 - PJ and Andy are shown to be in a very small Bag End set



Notice the screen caps on the right? Sure looks to us like screen caps from The Fellowship of the Ring for reference.

7. Image 07- Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis in Gollum's Cave



A great peek at the Gollum's Cave set. Andy is sneaking towards Bilbo as they play Riddles in the Dark.

8. Image 08 - Andy Serkis as Gollum in Motion Capture



Andy Serkis playing Gollum on the Gollum Cave set. He completed most of his filming before taking over as Second Unit director.

9. Image 09 - Woodland Location



This appears to be some type of wooded scene. Based on the actor in the motion capture suit, this could be the stone roll sequence? The monitors seem to show a campground type layout.

10-11. Images 10 & 11 - Woodland Scene Part 2



We see what looks to be bags/gear that would be carried by Dwarves here. This could be a sister shot to the one previous, or it could be the campground near the entrance to Goblin-town.

12. Image 12 - Hugo Weaving as Elrond and Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in Rivendell



One of the most exciting shots from this video...here we see Hugo Weaving as Elrond and Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. Unless there are some significant changes to the story, this is in Rivendell.

13. Image 13 - Bilbo and Elrond in Rivendell



A view from the back as Elrond and Bilbo take direction from PJ.

14. Image 14 - Andy Serkis Motion Capture



A view behind the scenes as we see a close-up on Gollum aka Andy Serkis

15. Image 15 - More Goblin-town?



Peter Jackson wearing the '200 Days to Go' shirt (soon to be an Ebay hot item!) on the set of Goblin-town?

16. Image 16 - More filming in Goblin-town?



Possibly more of Goblin-town

17. Image 17 - And once more...Goblin-town?



The crew anxiously awaiting wrap on the first phase of filming. Probably another Goblin-town set.

18. Image 18 - Ann Maskrey with Legolas Costume Sketches and more...



In the background we can see a few new costume designs for Orlando Bloom as Legolas, as well as various buttons, decorations, buckles, etc. Most of them look dwarvish.

19. Image 19 - Tami Lane with Orc/Goblin in Background



Check out the image posted on the mirror. Looks like a fighting Uruk-hai, but could possibly be photo reference for the 'new' Goblins? Or are they Orcs? Come to think of it...will we get 'Orc-town' now? Hrm....

20. Image 20 - Peter King with Dwarven Beards



Peter King with various Dwarven beards and prosthetics in the background.

21. Image 21 - PJ Reviewing Footage



While its rather blurry, the scene on the monitor seems to be a camp/woodland type scene. Possibly the final footage from the scenes we saw earlier.

22. Image 22 - Bilbo walking around...



We can definitely see Martin Freeman as Bilbo on the screen, but are unsure of the character that appears on the 'bridge' type element in the background. Maybe he is sneaking around Goblin-town? Or Mirkwood? Or possibly Lake-town? Your guess is as good as ours!

23. Image 23 - The All-Stars



We've got a lot of folks in this shot including Alan Lee (left) and John Howe (right). We see a lot of concept sketches on the walls and table. You'll also notice the set mock-ups in the foreground are similar to what we saw in the footage above. What do you think we see? Is that the Lonely Mountain aboveĀ Dan Hennah's head?

24. Image 24 - Richard Taylor shows some Cool Stuff!



There is a lot to take in with this picture as well. Along the back wall we see a Goblin head? Near Richard Taylor's right shoulder it looks like a headless Troll maquette?

======================================

We hope you enjoyed this look at the images from PJ's production video. If you have comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to leave them in our comments or on Facebook or in our forums! We'll be updating this post pretty often with your thoughts as they come in.

Goblin-town or Dol Guldur? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not convinced that all these sets are Goblin-town. We've got lots of roots going in all directions, which you wouldn't expect to see deep under the mountain. Also Sylvester McCoy was filming in this block, which means that they likely have been shooting some scenes at Rhosgobel or Dol Guldur. Some of those shots look more to me like Dol Guldur, which may have the look of a fortress being reclaimed by the forest.

I think you're right. [In reply to] Can't Post

There also seems to be some greenery on the right side of the shot, so I'm thinking a camp scene.

Look at the photo with Richard Taylor [In reply to] Can't Post

There are quite a few goodies in there.

In the background, you can see a bunch of maquettes up on the shelf. I think I spy a warg, possibly Beorn's bear form, and a character wielding a mace.

Also, right behind Taylor on the table, could that be a maquette of The Great Goblin?

Silverloade is Right, if Silvester McCoy has been there for some time.... [In reply to] Can't Post

he wouldn't have been in NZ........just studying his lines?

The sets of GoblinTown & DolGuldur could easily be reassembled & Lit differently, & Even Color-Graded? to NOT look like the Same Poly-styreen...

Zooming only makes the picture blurier... [In reply to] Can't Post

Again, i'm pretty sure i can make out the horse, its mane, its muzzle. Bilbo reacts to it as if he wanted to say "quiet!" or maybe he got startled by it. Then he looks up to the right, is there something in the trees perhaps, or a big troll?

yes I thought so too [In reply to] Can't Post

When I looked at the video I thought those sets were for Dol Guldur.
They resemble a drawing that Peter was looking at, in the first video blog, (a drawing in pencil with some ruins and there was a human form on the drawing- The Necromancer or The Which King) and probably was a drawing of Dol Guldur.

I didn't saw Sylvester McCoy on the set I have to watch the video again :)

I wasn't talking about the center mass. [In reply to] Can't Post

But behind Bilbo you can see a horse's neck facing right, with his head mostly obscured behind Bilbo's head. The center part doesn't look so much like ponies to me, although it could be two, side by side facing the camera. Or it might be something else. But there's definitely a pony in the background.

Looks like a pony and two dwarves to me [In reply to] Can't Post

I just watched it again. In the video you can very clearly see that it is a pony. And there seem to be two characters standing next to it. One looks like he might be fiddling with gear on the pony's back. When he turns you can make out what looks like axes on his back, although that could just be what I want to see. So yeah, to me it looks like a pony and two dwarves. But why Bilbo would be sneaking around behind them I don't know.
