Peter Jackson Unveils Final 'Hobbit' Behind-the-Scenes Blog (Video)
With the prequel slated for completion just two days before its New Zealand premiere, the director said "everyone’s working around the clock to get the film finished."
Sleep deprivation, recording at Abbey Road Studios and creating motion capture beards are among the topics in Peter Jackson’s final behind-the-scenes video blog for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Embedded at Park Road Post Production in Wellington, New Zealand, the director says the first of his Lord of the Rings prequels is due to be completed just two days before its Nov. 28 premiere in his home country ("hopefully," he adds with a nervous laugh).
"Everyone’s working around the clock to get the film finished," Jackson says.
The director takes viewers through editing and special effects at the studio, as well as the scoring of the film at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. In addition to the hard work, there seems to be plenty of perks working at Park Road Post, which provides laundry service, massages and three meals a day for its resident Middle-earth aficionados.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theaters on Dec. 14 in 3D & 48FPS. Watch the video below.
