Big Richard, Little Richard, Medium Richard [In reply to] Can't Post

That is classic the latest post. And it shows how truly difficult a task it is to work with scale like he has had two. 13 dwarves, plus Dain et.al, plus a hobbit (smaller yet) and men and elves. I can't imagine how difficult it's been. Love that shot he just posted.

Finally [In reply to] Can't Post

getting some good info about the series. Not sure about Dwalin's armor and Thorin's outfit if they're supposed to be in TBoFA. For some reason, I'm expecting the dwarf lords to be decked out and dressed to the hilt after visiting the Royal Armory. Maybe the Thorins took their armor off for lunch.

Really glad that Pete thinks Shore's score is great! Don't like all the green screen though.

Quote PJ, [In reply to] Can't Post

We're battling on, shooting Thorin in a climatic duel for the third movie. Finishing the entire shoot with the end of his story. Fitting I guess. It's obviously not the very end of the movie itself. That scene was actually shot about 2 years ago. But it's tough emotional stuff to punch on with into the night. Keeps us on our toes until the bitter end!


So, old Bilbo with Ian Holm perhaps to end the tale?

Well, let's see. [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't think of anything much smaller than the dwarves to need a large scale actor for, because he's already in the right proportion to be next to Hobbits, and next to wizards and Elves they either use Richard kneeling, etc. or they would use a smaller scale double. So, then my guess would be....

Large Thorin (Richard Armitage) = Thorin with other dwarves, Bilbo and in close ups with wizards and Elves
Medium Thorin = Thorin vs large orcs or scale shots with wizards and Elves and Men
Small Thorin = Thorin with Beorn, or maybe even Smaug? Shocked

My guess is Beorn [In reply to] Can't Post

Armitage is already to-scale with Freeman and the other dwarves. Given that Smaug is a completely CG creation (and can be made to whatever size for scaling purposes), there would be absolutely no need for a mini Thorin in scenes with Smaug.

Thorin standing next to a man that's supposed to be 10-feet tall, on the other hand..

Yes, good point. [In reply to] Can't Post

They shouldn't really need a scale for Smaug (or for Beorn in bear form, for that matter), so HumanBeorn it is. And from the size of BearBeorn in the trailer the scale seems about right, assuming he's roughly the same mass in both bear and human form.

But is there a place somewhere where i can see the full blog in order of the time it's posted? I'm not very experienced with Facebook myself so i find it a bit confusing to navigate.

All done!! [In reply to] Can't Post

"The last shot.
Big monitors, main unit. Small screens bottom right, splinter.
We're neck and neck ... Shooting our final shots at the same time.
10.32 pm. 4 or 5 takes so far.
No, wait ... Done! While I was typing this, we shot more takes and finished! Richard was fantastic. Splinter almost done. Minutes away.
Smiles and happiness... And sadness. Yikes, very sad."https://www.facebook.com/PeterJacksonNZ

Me too [In reply to] Can't Post

Seeing the appendices for LOTR. He kept on going with pick ups and adding more scenes.
I can't imagine PJ just going to edit both movies now and not wanting to add some scenes or something. Maybe all could be done digitally. But I have a feeling we might see another get together next year, to get some extra scenes done.
Also from what I read from actors (John Callen/Oin wrote a wonderful good bye yesterday to fans) they all see the entire period from March 2011 till now as one period. So this wouldn't be a pick up, just a late planned filming moment. Which could mean we could get an actual pick up next year.
