At the start of shooting Peter Jackson set about sharing his filmmaking experience on the set of The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey’s production via video diaries. The Hobbit used 48 RED EPIC cameras shooting 3D at 48fps. Love 48fps or hate it or maybe your’e somewhere in between at around a meh: you have to respect Peter for allowing everyone to see his making of The Hobbit. We grabbed a few stills from the video diary collection for your viewing pleasure. Take your time and check out the cameras and rigs used in filming The Hobbit. Hey, and also please see mid way through the video diary number 4 and check out the names of the RED EPIC cameras. Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit diary videos are at the bottom of this post numbers 1 through to 8.
