Awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post

Congrats man (or woman)! Wink

I don't suppose there's any chance you can share a few tidbits with us poor, uncast non-extras, is there? Like what race you're playing...Man, Elf, Dwarf, Barrow-wight...? Tongue

I would rather be watching Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"...it's going to be a long few years.

Woohoo! [In reply to] Can't Post

Fantastic news, Moahunter! It'll be great to hear your insider's view (or at least, as much of it that you can share without getting into trouble) of the making of The Hobbit films.

I hope you have a fantastic time. :)

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Now we all get to look for you when the 2nd movie comes out! I wish I could live in NZ and be an extra in those movies, that would be a dream!

Afterwards, remember to tell us all you can without the men in black coming to get you!

Plus, I think we should have buried Tolkien in a larger coffin, he probably cant turn very well in his. -Rossmonster

Now you're part of film history, Moahunter. [In reply to] Can't Post

And everyone who knows you will get a thrill from your experience, too - including your TORNsibs.
Have a blast!

Does this mean you will now be entering a "cone of silence" and not be able to share anything with us?

How exciting! [In reply to] Can't Post

Congrats, Moahunter! Of course, you know that we'd love to hear anything you can tell about the experience without breaking your non-disclosure agreement. Cool


"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

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

...I think I hate you now. Tongue No, that is pretty exciting. All the best, be sure to keep a diary so we can all live vicariously through you at some point after the film is released.

Rock on! Brother in Arms! [In reply to] Can't Post

August in Laketown...Whoo HOO!... From your Call and Armitage's interview they are already doing Laketown shoots! Pleased to know that.

Yeah, I know films are shot out of sequence, so I'm getting that they want the Biggest, most complicated stuff done early so there is plenty of room for pick-ups over the Next 30 months until Christmas 2013.

Try hard not to die on camera! even though actors&EXTRAS... love dying on set! xoxox OB

Congratulations, what an experience it will be! Cool

And yes, do let us know how it goes - as much as they will let you tell!
