Things are picking up! [In reply to] Can't Post

The set people will probably be sorting things out for a few days, setting up all the props and little doodads to make it look like Hobbiton again, and filming will get rolling once they have their gear set up. I think we're in for a dizzying rollercoaster ride of different reports from several locations around NZ.

Bridge to Laketown? [In reply to] Can't Post

Possibly to be expanded using bigatures or optical effects? Or possibly, Beorn's house?

Not sure how I didn't recognize it! Laugh

It'll be nice to see another familiar location on the big screen next year...

Beautiful [In reply to] Can't Post

It might be super awesome to be an actor filming movies like this.
At least if I were an actor I would say this is the best way of living something nicer than reality SlyBlush

*geeky hand-clapping!* Can't get enough of Hobbiton!! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

Makes me think... what colour door would I like?

*ponders*

*imagines*

Same as it's been for the past 12 years... green ;)

sample

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
