Link: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The Hobbit is the first of two movies detailing the prequel to the historic Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Zebedee Films is a big fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. We have watched the behind the scenes footage many time and are very excited to see the beautiful land of Hobbiton. Peter Jackson has had a long standing relationship with the RED Digital Cinema Cameras. He sent a message to RED saying,
“I have always liked the look of RED footage. I’m not a scientist or mathematician, but the image Red produces has a much more filmic feel than most of the other digital formats. I find the picture quality appealing and attractive, and with the Epic, Jim and his team have gone even further. It is a fantastic tool, the Epic not only has cutting edge technology, incredible resolution and visual quality, but it is also a very practical tool for film makers. Many competing digital systems require the cameras to be tethered to large cumbersome VTR machines. The Epic gives us back the ability to be totally cable free, even when working in stereo.”
Peter Jackson has taken delivery of no less than thirty EPIC cameras for their 3D rigs. We at Zebedee Films will be keeping an extra close eye on this production to watch history being made.
