For the first round, I decided to create something originally thought up for another contest: Bag End, movie-style. It was really a mad rush to get this finished, and this write-up will no doubt be pretty quiet. But I'll try and make my presence known once in awhile.
Peter Jackson, director, talking to Martin Freeman, who plays Bilbo Baggins. Notes: he doesn't have short legs because he is actually 5 feet, six inches tall, and that's a pipe he's holding, not a flintlock pistol (that Middle-Earth technology is really coming along).
A camerawomen zooms in on Gandalf, played by Ian McKellen, approaching Bag End.
A painter puts the finishing touches on Bag End's doorway.
Bilbo's bench, and a small trolley with supplies.
Side view, showing the angles (admittedly not very well).
The very un-attractive interior. This is actually realistic: the outside sections of the movie are filmed in New Zealand, while the interior scenes (or at least some of them) are filmed in the studio.
Well, that's all I have for you tonight. A huge thank you to the judges and everybody for putting this together, and a great big good luck to all the other contestants. See you on the next build!
Soli Deo Gloria,
Quoting David .
Actually I think bag end is full scale on in NZ. But there are some shots in the studio i believe. Great work, nice twist! Good luck. :)
You may be right, I'm not too knowledgable in this subject ;) I just watched a production video and noticed some interior shots (namely the dining table) were in the studio, hence the commentary :) Thanks very much for the comment!
