A nice little treat from Peter Jackson here as he presents the second video production diary from the Set of THE HOBBIT. It was back in April when we had the first and as usual Jackson never disappoints as you’ll see in the latest video. He tells us how the big blockbusters like to split the shooting of movies into ‘blocks’ which allows to give cast, crew a well earned break along with a chance for any CGI work to be looked at keeping a fresh feel to the whole production. The video also shows Andy Serkis hard at work as a second unit director along with some beautiful location hopping with Jackson in the helicopter.If your a fan of middle earth or simply a movie fan this fantastic video is essential viewing and there’s even a hint of another video diary before the next block of shooting which starts on September 5th!!!
THE HOBBIT:AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY will be with us 14th December 2012 with the final part coming 13th December 2013 with THE HOBBIT:THERE AND BACK AGAIN.
