The Hobbit Production Diaries, Pt. 8

With production winding down, the Warner Brothers marketing machine begins to kick in. The beginning of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit production Dairies today lets us follow the director (and lots of Cast members), to one of the largest fan conventions of any kind, San Diego's Comic-Con.

Jackson let's you walk out on stage with him, courtesy of his iPhone camera, and share in what's it like to be greeted by a hall full of screaming fans anxious for a very first glimpse at The Hobbit, An Unintended Journey. You'll even get to see the video shown that day during the panel discussion.

Then it's back to New Zealand to watch the final few days of shooting as production, on likely the last Tolkien novel to see production through the eyes and talents of Peter Jackson, draws to a close.

But don't despair, there's still tomorrow, and tomorrow brings both the U.S. release of the first film in the Hobbit trilogy as well as an introduction into the post production process. If you thought all of the hard work was over, a glimpse at the myriad of departments and personnel called onto to complete things is nothing less than astonishing.

Thanks for following along with Moviedozer throughout these last 8 days. We hope you'll be with us tomorrow as we call it a wrap along with the director and head out the door to buy tickets for the movie.

So if you have a bit of champagne (or lemonade) about, lift a toast with cast and crew at the end of today's segment. Here's pt. 8 of The Hobbit production diaries. See you tomorrow.
