One week until the premiere--the final stretch for PJ & Co. Can't Post

I'm sure that there are many tired artists in NZ now, working their butts off around the clock to put the finishing touches on DOS before the LA premiere. Since they have one week to go, I thought a final 'pat on the back'/good luck thread wouldn't hurt.

Best of luck to PJ, everyone at WETA Digital/Workshop, and all others working on the premiere staff who will make this event come to life next week. There, the final cut of the film will be shown, and all of that hard work will come to fruition in front of an audience. PJ has been very excited for DOS, and I can't wait to see what he's prepared for us.

I can't wait to see all of the actors again (and they all seem very eager to see each other, too!) in LA. They're a fantastic group. It has to feel strange to wait over two years to see some of your work appear on the screen. The pay-off must be immense.


It didn't hit me until now that they've only got a week left. *Hopefully* they aren't as down to the wire as last year (running a USB with final edits to the theater). I suppose that, because they're in LA this year, the deadline is much more firm (Which makes me realize--they only have six days left, since it's Tuesday in NZ now; plus, everyone has to fly to LA). Crazy

Regardless, best of luck to everyone involved with the production in the last few days of post-production for DOS!Smile

of going into the theater to see film two. Its been a long and short year since film one. I will say I'm already dreading next year to be honest and the last time we get a first run Middle-earth based film.

VFX never gets enough props. They are the real miracle workers of Jurassic Park... wrong movie. Laugh

I couldn't get myself to make this thread, initially, because I couldn't believe that it's only a week away. I had to check my calendar several times to make sure. Cool

A great big thank you to everyone involved! [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't imagine how crazy things must be right now, so definitely want to share my appreciation of all the hard work and effort that has gone into these movies!

Really hope we get to watch the world premiere on a live stream again - that was so fun last year, and really kicked the anticipation into high gear!

And thank you cats for starting this thread!

I wonder if they say that before each film!

I have to add my appreciation in here too, to all involved AngelicHeart

The second TORn Amateur Symposium is running right now, in the Reading Room. Come have a look and maybe stay to chat!

Wow [In reply to] Can't Post

Must be really stressful, yet exciting at this time for all involved. They can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Since there are no pick ups for TABA, I guess next year will be a breeze. Editing, and finishing, that's all! That must feel really good. Keep up the good work PJ.

I forgot about the live stream... [In reply to] Can't Post

I watched it last year, but the thought didn't occur to me to watch it next week. Crazy I'm glad you mentioned that.

Waaaay OT here: I've never seen this --->Pirate<-----used here (maybe I haven't been observant). Where was this back on Talk Like a Pirate Day?! Wink

Pretty sure it's been here awhile [In reply to] Can't Post

at least since I registered, and it looks like it was used at least once on Talk Like a Pirate Day: http://newboards.theonering.net/..._latest_reply;so=ASC;

I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for live stream info, last year it was on Peter's facebook page and here on TORn, so I'm sure we'll spot it.
