The Hobbit: Post-Production

I have often referred to post-production as the unsung heroes of filmmaking, and this little behind the scenes bit from The Hobbit just reinforces that.

It’s hard to imagine just how many hours go into the film once the cameras are off. Sure, there’s always editing, but don’t forget about the sound design, music, effects, and the plethora of revisions. All of these elements and years of work combine to form the singular polished vision that you enjoy for an average of two hours.
