Look at that slate!
48 FPS, man, it’s gonna be crazy. People are going to be pissed, which is funny, because it’s not something to get pissed about yet.
From Facebook: “We made it! Shoot day 266 and the end of principal photography on The Hobbit. Thanks to our fantastic cast and crew for getting us this far, and to all of you for your support! Next stop, the cutting room. Oh, and Comic Con! Cheers, Peter J”
Both parts of ‘The Hobbit’ have finished principal photography. That’s 266 days of shooting a massive 3D, 48 FPS since March 21st 2011 and that’s…well, that’s just massive.
Outside of super-entertaining video blogs, the general public hasn’t really gotten a look at what Peter Jackson is cooking regarding this new technical approach to 3D filmmaking.
But luckily Comic Con is just around the corner!
We’ll probably see the most from ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ since that hits December 14th of this year. Part 2: ‘The Hobbit: There And Back Again’ drops a year later on December 14th, 2013.
I’m psyched! I don’t care how many frames per second I’m seeing.
