The Hobbit Production Diaries, Pt. 4

Welcome back to another installment of Peter Jackson's production diaries documenting the making of The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey.

Part 4 of the dairies features director Peter Jackson taking us through the considerations and logistics of making the film in 3D. As you can imagine, making films on this scale is a challenge in more ways than most of us could ever wish to deal with on a day to day job. Choosing to add in the challenge of filming in native 3D likely qualifies Mr. Jackson for long years of professional counseling. But then, so would expanding a relatively modest book into a three film trilogy.

Nonetheless, the insight into 3D filming helps broaden our understanding of the effort that went into creating another step in immersing theater goers into the story.

With James Cameron's Avatar, Martin Scorsese's Hugo and Ang Lee's Life of Pi all advancing the state -of-the-art of 3D, this new segment of the Hobbit Production Diaries bumps up the anticipation for seeing what Peter Jackson's contribution will be with his first 3D feature.

Thanks for joining us on our continuing journey through the production of the The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey. Stop by again tomorrow for part 5.
