Sir Peter Jackson returned to Middle Earth in 2011 with shooting commencing on JRR
Tolkien’s The Hobbit. A two-part project, the fi rst fi lm is due for release in December 2012 with part two out around a year later. There will be both 2D and 3D versions of the films.
The films are being shot with RED Epic cameras housed in 3ality 3D rigs – both sideby-
side and mirror types. The footage is recorded and processed by Park Road Post, and delivered to the editorial department.
