Behind the Scenes on The Hobbit

from The Guardian

Jackson’s latest video blog highlights just how much he and his team are focusing their energies on getting the 3D right for the new films, the first of which arrives next December.

We’re also treated to some techie insight into shooting 3D at 48 frames per second, twice the usual rate for cinema. Apparently this required the film-makers to paint Mirkwood in bright red and yellow so that the final shots of the famous forest ended up with a slightly hallucinogenic effect.

We have lots of entry level HD Cameras for any budding filmmakers!
