What's your favourite Hobbit production video? Take 2! Can't Post

In March I posted a poll on everyone's favourite vlog. There were only 19 votes, but clearly out in the lead where videos #3 (on set during block 1) and #1 (start of production).


We have now luckily been spoiled with 8 production videos, which have given us the opportunity to see "The Hobbit" films progress from the first days of shooting, all through location shooting and the logistics associated with it, all the way to the last days of shooting.

Now seems like a good time to ask the question again! Which is your favourite Hobbit production video? Interpret "favourite" however you like, whether you simply enjoyed those that showed the stunning NZ countryside, or the videos that went into slightly more technical details such as logistics and 3D, or those that gave us glimpses of actual scenes, including the Trolls, the Stone Giants, Saruman, "Gandriel", and the infamous "no-lid-on-the"Barrels out of Bond sequence Wink.

The first video will also feel special to me- nothing will ever beat seeing Rivendell and Hobbiton (and everyone in costume) so many years after LOTR. I've also loved the last 2 videos since they have shown us so much, and allowed us to speculate so much!

Multiple votes welcome!

Multiple votes? Ya shouldn't have said that! [In reply to] Can't Post

I've loved them all.

But I guess I'll vote for the first one, because it took us back to Middle-earth.

Or wait, which was the one with Christopher Lee at the end?

And hey--I LOVED the stone giants, Rhosgobel , and Dale...

see? It's an impossible task to vote for one.

This was a hard choice [In reply to] Can't Post

I liked them all for different reasons but I think the last two got me most excited for the films.

Choce 3. Just because it was so ah-mazing when it came out.

#7 For me [In reply to] Can't Post

It flowed the best and had the most entertaining content out of the lot. Plus, I always wondered what a real A-grade studio looks like! Love that green screen especially.
