Working in 3-D on the Hobbit!

This video actually released a little while ago, but for those who haven't seen it, it's another of those amazing Production Diary pieces Peter Jackson puts out to cover the development and progress of his epic Lord of the Rings films. This video in particular gives us a look at the process of using 3-D and shooting at higher frame rates. It's great stuff for aspiring filmmakers moving into the 3-D era to learn about as well as all the things that have changed in movie making, the Red Epic cameras, shooting digitally, and even what production considerations need to be seen with concern to make-up, costumes and also in a first... 3-D concept art??? See for yourself what the crazy WETA guys are up to!
